Quizzical Pursuit
—The Architecture Puzzler

Created by Dave Guadagni

Solution to Last Week's Puzzler
Architecture Puzzler #355

Question

How fast will sound travel in a room with normal air pressure? Answer in feet per second (or meters per second).

Answer

About 1,000 feet per second, or 305 meters per second. Although this is fast, it is nothing compared to the speed of transference possible though phone systems, where a normal conversation is possible with someone on the other side of the earth.
 


 

Okay, got it? Now try this week's Puzzler:
