As we learnt in 

Effect of temperature on speed of sound -

\because \frac{P}{\rho }= \frac{RT}{M}

\therefore V= \sqrt{\frac{\gamma RT}{M}}

 

- wherein

V \alpha \sqrt{T}

T is in Kelvin

So velocity increses with increase in temperature.

 

 

 Since V=\sqrt{\frac{\gamma P}{\rho}}=\sqrt{\frac{\gamma RT}{M}}

V is independent of P

\therefore Ratio of velocity = 1:1
