**Question 1**
**Report**

A man clapping his hands at regular intervals observes that the echo of a clap coincides with the next clap. If the reflecting cliff is 160m away and the speed of sound is 320ms-1, what is the frequency of the clapping?

**Answer Details**

Total distance = 2 x 160 = 320cm

Total time = 320320 $\frac{320}{320}$ = 1s

F = 11 $\frac{1}{1}$ = 11 $\frac{1}{1}$

= 1Hz
