Whats the wavelength?

The wavelength is 4900 m. So it's about as tall as a mountain is around 16,076 feet tall. To the right is a photo of the comparison.

The inventor of ultrasound waves

Sir Francis Galton constructed a whistle producing ultrasound in 1893. The first technological application of ultrasound was an attempt to detect icebergs by Paul Langevin in 1917. The piezoelectric effect, discovered by Jacques and Pierre Curie in 1880, was useful in transducers to generate and detect ultrasonic waves in air and water.
