No, the speed of sound may be 340 meters per second.The frequency is speed of sound divided by wavelength.So your frequency f = 340 / 0.68 = 500 Hz.

Speed divided by frequency. 12.96 meters.

That would also depend on the speed. Note that sound can go at quite different speeds, depending on the medium and the temperature. Use the formula speed (of sound) = frequency x wavelength. Solving for wavelength: wavelength = speed / frequency. If the speed is in meters / second, and the frequency in Hertz, then the wavelength will be in meters.

speed = wavelength * frequency wavelength = 102 meters frequency = 250 Hz = 250 cycles/second 102 * 250 = 25500 meters/second

The speed of the sound wave is 325m/s.

Divide the speed of sound by the wavelength, to get the frequency. The period is the reciprocal of the frequency. The speed of sound in air is about 343 meters/second, but it depends on temperature. The speed of sound in other materials is quite different from the speed of sound in air.

The speed of sound varies with temperature. At commonly experienced temperatures, it's about 343 meters/sec. Frequency = speed/wavelength = 343/0.686 = 500 Hz
