Here, Frequency, f = 500 Hz

Now, Time period,  T=1 / f

= 1/500

= 0.002 s

The time interval between successive compressions from the source of sound is equal to the time-period of sound waves which is 0.002 second (The distance of 450 m has been given in this question just to confuse the students).
