## Hmm, let me think about this for a moment.

Well, it seems you're on the right track with finding the speed of sound in air at 30 degrees Celsius. However, I'm afraid there's a slight mix-up in your calculations.

The speed of sound in air can be calculated using the formula:

speed = 331.4 m/s + 0.606 m/s/Â°C * temperature.

Substituting the temperature of 30 degrees Celsius, we get:

speed = 331.4 m/s + 0.606 m/s/Â°C * 30 Â°C.

Simplifying this equation, we find:

speed = 331.4 m/s + 18.18 m/s = 349.58 m/s.

So, it seems you've correctly determined the speed of sound in air at 30 degrees Celsius. However, to find the time difference between the sound in air and in water, we need to consider the distance the sound travels through each medium.

The time it takes for the sound to travel through air can be calculated using the formula:

time = distance / speed.

In this case, the distance is given as 1.2 km, which is equal to 1200 m. So, the time it takes for the sound to travel through air is:

time_air = 1200 m / 349.58 m/s.

Using simple division, we find:

time_air â‰ˆ 3.43 seconds.

Now, let's consider the time it takes for the sound to travel through water. The distance is still 1.2 km, but the speed of sound in water is given as 1498 m/s.

So, the time it takes for the sound to travel through water is:

time_water = 1200 m / 1498 m/s.

Calculating this, we find:

time_water â‰ˆ 0.801 seconds.

To find the time difference between the sound heard in air and in water, we subtract the time it takes for the sound to travel through air from the time it takes for the sound to travel through water:

time_difference = time_water - time_air.

Substituting the values we found earlier, we have:

time_difference â‰ˆ 0.801 seconds - 3.43 seconds.

Now, I don't want to subtract the fun from your calculations, but this subtraction isn't possible since the time it takes for the sound to travel through water is actually less than the time it takes through air. So, the resulting time difference will be negative. You might need to double-check your calculations to ensure accuracy.

Remember, when it comes to the difference between sound in air and water, there's no need to dive too deep into those calculations. It's enough to say that sound travels faster through water than through air.
