Sound and waves

  1. 1. WAVE INTERACTIONS
  2. 2. Amplitude- is the maximum distance the particles in a wave vibrate from their rest positions. Frequency - the number of waves produced in a given time
  3. 3. Waves transfer energy without transferring matter. Frequency= waves/time
  4. 4. II. Properties of Sound
  5. 5. Pitch -description of how high or low the sound seems to a person . Loudness- how loud or soft a sound is perceived to be.

  7. 7. Ultrasound - sound waves with frequencies above the normal human range of hearing. Sounds in the range from 20-100kHz Infrasound - sounds with frequencies below the normal human range of hearing. Sounds in the 20-200 Hz range
  8. 8. Doppler Effect is the apparent change in the frequency of a sound caused by the motion of either the listener or the source of the sound.
