Engineering ToolBox - Resources, Tools and Basic Information for Engineering and Design of Technical Applications! Speed of sound in some gases at zero degrees Celsius and atmospheric pressure.
speed of sound depends on the density and the bulk modulus elasticity of a gas.
Speed of sound for some gases at
