Speed of Sound in Air

Speed of Sound in Air problem 11

A ship measures the depth of the sea beneath it using sonar. The sonar emits an ultrasonic wave that propagates toward the bottom, bounces off, and is detected again on the ship. The time elapsed from transmission to detection of the reflected wave is 0.3 s. How deep is the sea if the speed of sound in water is 1400 m/s?
