### Transcript of "Soundwaves 100212173149-phpapp02"

1. 1. Waves & Sound W. Sautter 2007
2. 2. Transverse waves (light) Longitudinal waves (sound) Types of Wave Motion These are also called Compressional Waves
3. 3. Comparing Transverse & Longitudinal Waves Rarefaction = low Pressure Compression = high Pressure Crest Trough Compression Rarefaction Compression Compression Rarefaction Rarefaction Trough Crest
4. 4. Wavelength  Frequency  Properties of Transverse Waves Velocity Wavelength  Frequency  Velocity v x =
5. 5. Constructive interference Destructive interference Partially Constructive interference Interference of Waves Wave A Wave A Wave A Wave B Wave B Wave B
6. 6. Sound Intensity Intensity = Power / Area Sound Source Sound radiates out from a source as concentric spheres and follows an Inverse Square function
7. 7. Sound Intensity Inverse Square means as distance from the source doubles, the intensity 1/4 the original. If distance triples, the intensity is 1/9 the original and so on. The surface area of a sphere is given by 4  r 2 Power is measured in watts ( 1 joule / second) Intensity = Power / Area = watts/ 4  r 2 Or Watts / meter 2
8. 8. Decibels dB = 10 log ( I / I 0 ) I = the intensity of the sound to be evaluated I 0 = intensity of lowest sound that can be heard (1 x 10 -12 watts / meter 2 )
9. 9. <ul><li>SINCE LOGS ARE POWERS OF 10 THEY ARE USED JUST LIKE THE POWERS OF 10 ASSOCIATED WITH SCIENTIFIC NUMBERS. </li></ul><ul><li>WHEN LOG VALUES ARE ADDED, THE NUMBERS THEY REPRESENT ARE MULTIPLIED. </li></ul><ul><li>WHEN LOG VALUES ARE SUBTRACTED, THE NUMBERS THEY REPRESENT ARE DIVIDED </li></ul><ul><li>WHEN LOGS ARE MULTIPLIED, THE NUMBERS THEY REPRESENT ARE RAISED TO POWERS </li></ul><ul><li>WHEN LOGS ARE DIVIDED, THE ROOTS OF NUMBERS THEY REPRESENT ARE TAKEN. </li></ul>Decibels are logarithmic functions
10. 10. <ul><li>A LOGARITHM (LOG) IS A POWER OF 10. IF A NUMBER IS WRITTEN AS 10 X THEN ITS LOG IS X. </li></ul><ul><li>FOR EXAMPLE 100 COULD BE WRITTEN AS 10 2 THEREFORE THE LOG OF 100 IS 2. </li></ul><ul><li>IN PHYSICS CALCULATIONS OFTEN SMALL NUMBERS ARE USED LIKE .0001 OR 10 -4 . THE LOG OF .0001 IS THEREFORE –4. </li></ul><ul><li>FOR NUMBERS THAT ARE NOT NICE EVEN POWERS OF 10 A CALCULATOR IS USED TO FIND THE LOG VALUE. FOR EXAMPLE THE LOG OF .00345 IS –2.46 AS DETERMINED BY THE CALCULATOR. </li></ul>Decibels are logarithmic functions
11. 11. Sound Intensity Whisper 20 decibels Plane 120 decibels Conversation 60 decibels Siren 100 decibels
12. 12. Tension, String Density & Frequency The frequency of a string depends on the Tension (N) and string Linear Density in kilograms per meter (Kg/m). Light strings under high tension yield high frequencies. Heavy strings under low tension yield low frequencies. T _ m / L f =
13. 13. The Doppler Effect V (air) = 341 m/s at 20 o C If observer is moving towards the source, V (observer) = + If observer is moving towards the source, V (observer) = - If source is moving towards the observer, V (source) = - If source is moving towards the observer, V (source) = + f = f v + v _________ v + v observer observer source source air air + + ( (
14. 14. Slower at low temp Faster at high temp Speed of Sound Changes with Temperature
15. 15. Speed of Sound Changes with Temperature V = 331.5 = .6 T 0 C
16. 16. Doppler Effect ( moving source moving observer ) Moving Toward source Moving Toward observer Observed Frequency Is higher
17. 17. Doppler Effect ( moving source moving observer ) Moving Away from observer Moving Away from source Observed Frequency Is lower
18. 18. Doppler Effect ( moving source stationary observer ) Moving Away from observer Observer At rest Observed Frequency Is lower
19. 19. Doppler Effect ( moving source stationary observer ) Moving Toward observer Observer At rest Observed Frequency Is higher
