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.

 

 

 V=\sqrt{\frac{\gamma RT}{M}}\:\:\:=>V\propto \frac{1}{\sqrt{14}}

\frac{V_{H2}}{V_{O2}}=\sqrt{\frac{M_{O2}}{M_{H2}}}=\sqrt{\frac{32}{2}}=4:1
