Solution

We have to calculate time taken by the sound wave to reach the reflecting surface.

Given: Distance between the observer and reflecting surface d = 825 m
Velocity of sound ν = 330 m/s
We know the time taken by sound wave to reach the reflecting surface is,
t = 2d/ν
⇒ t = (2)(825)/330
⇒ t = 5 s
This is the required time.
