Subject: speed of sound

Post:
I know how the speed of sound varies with temperature in air, and am
wanting the speed of sound in carbon dioxide. I've searched the web with
no luck. Only found the speed to be 258 m/s at 0 C. Wanted to know other
values for a speed of sound lab I'm trying soon (with water, tuning fork,
Alka-Seltzer, etc.).

Can someone guide me to a web site or a formula for the speed of sound in
CO2 from 0 C to 100 C? I don't have a CRC Handbook, but am wondering if
this book might have the information I need.
