    the relevant equation here is

    c = L f where c is the speed of the wave, L is the wavelength and f is the frequency

    so L = c/f

    look up the speed of sound at STP (approx 340 m/s) and divide this value by 250Hz, your wavelength should be approximately 1.4m

    Wavelength*frequency=speed of sound in air at STP

    wavelength=speed of sound/frequency

    wavelength= (340.29meters/second)/(250 1/s)=340.29/250 meters

    = 1.36116 meters

    that's an exceptionally stable question, and that i did not comprehend the respond, so I called god (I truthfully have him on my velocity dial for in simple terms those form of motives) and that i wasn't waiting to get him on the telephone. that's humorous ~ now which you point out it, i've got in no way been waiting to get him on the telephone =/ that's like he's not probably there or some thing. I in simple terms save getting his answering service. enable me attempt it back. dangle on a 2d. *mumbles, ok action picture star, seven, seven, seven* Nope! same message "The kind you're attempting to attain seven, seven, seven is unavailable at present. to depart a voice message . . ." Oh properly, i attempted. Sorry.

    lamda = STP/f = STP/250. Should be enough.
