### Lecture 07 sound waves. speed of sound. intensity.

1. 1. Lecture 7 Sound waves. Speed of sound. Intensity.
2. 2. ACT: Dust in front of loudspeaker Consider a small dust particle, suspended in air (due to buoyancy) speaker dust particle When you turn on the speaker, the dust particle A. oscillates back and forth horizontally, and moves slowly to the right B. steadily moves to the right C. oscillates back and forth horizontally DEMO: Candle
3. 3. Pressure/density oscillations Gas in equilibrium: pressure and density are uniform. Sound wave: periodic longitudinal oscillations of particles in the gas Consider one slice of air: 1. Oscillation to the right causes pressure to increase 2. Increase in force causes neighboring air to be displaced → sound wave propagates 3. Slice of air oscillates back to region of low pressure The small volumes of air do not propagate with wave, they only oscillate around their equilibrium position. DEMO: Sound in vacuum.
4. 4. Harmonic longitudinal waves Consider a gas in long, thin, horizontal tube. Each particle of gas oscillates horizontally in a harmonic way: s (x ,t ) = smax cos(kx − ωt ) air normally at x = 0, displaced to right by 10 µm air normally at x = 50 cm, displaced to left by 10 µm
5. 5. Pressure, density oscillations Here air is to the right of where it should be Here air is to the left of where it should be Air from both sides momentarily accumulates in middle Zero displacement ↔ Maximum density and pressure
6. 6. Pressure and density oscillations It all boils down to a phase difference: Displacement s (x ,t ) = smax cos(kx − ωt ) Pressure p (x ,t ) = pmax sin(kx − ωt ) Note that p is the gauge pressure. The pressure of air in equilibrium is patm. The oscillations give a total pressure ptotal (x ,t ) = patm + p (x ,t ) Density ∆ρ (x ,t ) = ∆ρmax sin(kx − ωt ) Density oscillations are also about the regular air density. Total density is ρtotal (x ,t ) = ρ0 + ∆ρ (x ,t )
7. 7. Relation between displacement and pressure Consider a pipe of cross-sectional area A filled with air, and a small element at x with thickness Δx. In equilibrium: p0 x p0 Δx Due to a wave, element moves and changes its size x+s p0 + p1 p0 + p2 Δx + Δs
8. 8. Pressure and displacement are related through the bulk modulus of the air! (gauge pressure) p B =− ∆V V V = A ∆x ∆V = A ∆s ∆V ∆s ∂s =  → ∆x →0 V ∆x ∂x ∂s (x ,t ) p (x ,t ) = −B ∂x The harmonic case: s (x ,t ) = smax cos(kx − ωt ) → p (x ,t ) = Bksmax sin(kx − ωt ) pmax
9. 9. Sound wave speed p0 x p0 x+s p0 + p1 Δ x + Δs Δx Net force on the element: Acceleration of the element: Mass of the element: ∂2s ( p1 − p2 )A = ρA ∆x ∂t 2 ( p1 − p2 ) ∂2s =ρ 2 ∆x ∂t p0 + p2 F = ( p1 − p2 )A ∂2s a = 2 ∂t ∆m = ρ A ∆x ∆x → 0 ∂p ∂2s − =ρ 2 ∂x ∂t
10. 10. ∂s p = −B ∂x ∂p ∂2s = −B ∂x ∂x 2 ∂p ∂2s − =ρ 2 ∂x ∂t DEMO: Organ pipe with different gases. Video. ∂2s ∂2s ρ 2 =B ∂t ∂x 2 video ∂2s ρ ∂2s − =0 2 2 B ∂t ∂x Wave equation with B v = ρ
11. 11. In-class example: Sonar A sound wave in water has a frequency of 1000 Hz. What is its wavelength? (B water = 2.0 GPa, ρ water = 1000 kg/m3) A. B. C. D. E. 1.4 mm 0.14 m 14 m 1400 m None of the above B 2.0 × 109 Pa v = = = 1414 m/s 3 3 ρ 10 kg/m λ= v 1414 m/s = = 1.4 m f 1000 Hz
12. 12. Wave speed, in general F String: v = µ In general: Sound in a fluid: v = restoring force property v = inertial property Sound in a solid: v = Y ρ B ρ
13. 13. ACT: A sixth sense? A large ammunition factory and a town are separated by a rocky hill, at a horizontal distance of about 5 km. An accident produces a huge explosion in the middle of the night. What do the town inhabitants experience? A. First the room shakes, and then they hear an explosion. B. First they hear an explosion, and then the room shakes. C. They hear an explosion and the room shakes at the same time.
14. 14. 5 km Time for sound wave to reach the town: Through hill (granite): x 5000 m t = = = 0.8 s v 6000 m/s  v =   Ygranite ρgranite  = 6000 m/s ÷ ÷  Through air: x 5000 m t = = = 14.6 s v 343 m/s 14 seconds later! This happened in California during WWII. Most people woke up (distressed…) to the light quake and then heard the explosion. Many attributed this to a “sixth sense” that had warned them of the imminent disaster. The “sixth sense” was just the laws of wave propagation…
15. 15. Intensity P I = area Average power (over time) in wave Area of the surface where this power is distributed Example: A siren emits a sound of power 2W at 100 m from you. How much power reaches your ear (eardrum area = 0.7 cm2) Sphere of Intensity at distance r from source: area 4π r 2 r P 2W IR = at source = = 1.6 × 10 −5 W/m2 2 4π r 2 4π ( 100 m ) Power absorbed by eardrum: ( )( ) Peardrum = IR × ( area of eardrum ) = 1.6 × 10 −5 W/m2 0.7 × 10 −4 m2 = 1.1 nW
16. 16. Distance and amplitude At distance r from the source, the power is Pr µ Ir µ We also know that P µ ( Amplitude ) 2 Amplitude decreases as 1 r 1 r2
17. 17. Intensity for harmonic waves I = P = A r r F × v A = Fxv x ds = p dt A s (x ,t ) = smax cos(kx − ωt ) p (x ,t ) = Bksmax sin(kx − ωt ) I = Bk ωs 2 max sin (kx − ω ) t 2 = ds = smaxω sin(kx − ωt ) dt 1 2 Bk ωsmax 2 B v = ρ Or, in terms of pmax = Bksmax Useful to include frequency effects 1 2 I = ρ B ω 2smax 2 2 pmax I = ρB
18. 18. Sound intensity level β = 10log I I0 with I 0 = 10 −12 W/m2 Units: decibels Threshold of human hearing: 10-12 W/m2 Normal conversation: 10-6 W/m2 Threshold of pain: 1 W/m2 → β =0 → β = 65 decibels → β = 120 decibels Twice the decibels does NOT feel twice as loud!
