    Approximately 0.4373 seconds

    Speed of sound at 20 degree C is roughly 343 meters/second

    Speed of light = 3x10^8 or 300,000,000 meters/second

    at 150.0 feet away you set it up as:

    150.0/343 - 150/3x10^8

    150.0/343 = 0.43731778

    150/3x10^8 = 5x10^-7 or 0.0000005

    Subtract 0.43731778 - 0.0000005

    Answer is 0.43731728

    Rounding would be approx. 0.4373
