Sect 19.1

  1. 1. 6 th Grade Science Chapter 19 Sound Notes Section 19.1 Bottle Nose Dolphins
  2. 2. <ul><li>What is a wave? </li></ul><ul><li>A wave carries energy from one place to another without transferring matter. </li></ul><ul><li>What are sound waves? </li></ul><ul><li>Sound waves are compressional waves produced by vibrations. </li></ul>Key Questions 1
  3. 3. Boats go up and down on the water but the water stays in nearly the same place.
  4. 4. Making Sound Waves <ul><li>As the end of the tuning fork moves outward into the air, it pushes the molecules in the air together. </li></ul><ul><li>As a result, a region where the molecules are closer together, or more dense, is created. </li></ul><ul><li>This region of higher density is called a compression. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Making Sound Waves <ul><li>When one end of the tuning fork moves back, it creates a region of lower density called a rarefaction. </li></ul><ul><li>As the tuning fork continues to vibrate, a series of compressions and rarefactions is formed. </li></ul>
  6. 7. <ul><li>What is compression and rarefaction? </li></ul><ul><li>Sound waves travel through air creating areas of higher density (compression) and low density (rarefaction). </li></ul><ul><li>What is the frequency of a sound wave? </li></ul><ul><li>The frequency of a sound wave is the number of compressions and rarefactions that pass a given point in one second. </li></ul>Key Questions 2 The Tadpole Galaxy
  7. 8. Making Sound Waves <ul><li>Like other waves, a sound wave can be described by its wavelength and frequency. </li></ul><ul><li>Wavelength is the distance from one compression to another or one rarefaction to another. </li></ul><ul><li>The frequency of a sound wave is the number of compressions or rarefactions that pass at a given point in one second. </li></ul>
  8. 12. <ul><li>Through what material does sound travel fastest and slowest? </li></ul><ul><li>Sound travels fastest in solids and slowest in gases. </li></ul><ul><li>When do sound waves carry the more energy? </li></ul><ul><li>Sound waves with greater amplitude carry more energy and sound louder. </li></ul>Key Questions 3 The Sombrero Galaxy
  9. 13. The Speed of Sound <ul><li>The speed of sound is usually fastest in solids, where molecules are closest together, and slowest in gases, where molecules are farthest apart. </li></ul>
  10. 14. Amplitude and Loudness <ul><li>When you play a song at high volume and low volume, you hear the same instruments and voices, but something is different. </li></ul><ul><li>The difference is that loud sound waves generally carry more energy than soft sound waves do. </li></ul>
  11. 15. Amplitude and Energy <ul><li>Sound waves with greater amplitude carry more energy and sound louder. </li></ul><ul><li>Sound waves with smaller amplitude carry less energy and sound quieter. </li></ul><ul><li>The higher the amplitude of the wave is, the more compressed the particles in the compression are and the more spread out they are in the rarefactions. </li></ul>
  12. 16. The Decibel Scale <ul><li>Although the perception of loudness varies from person to person, the energy carried by sound waves can be described by a scale called the decibel scale. </li></ul><ul><li>An increase in the loudness of a sound of 10 dB means that the energy carried by the sound has increased ten times, but an increase of 20 dB means that the sound carries 100 times more energy. </li></ul>
  13. 17. The Decibel Scale <ul><li>Hearing damage begins to occur at sound levels of about 85 dB. </li></ul><ul><li>The amount of damage depends on the frequencies of the sound and the length of time a person is exposed to the sound. </li></ul>
  14. 18. <ul><li>What frequency can the human ear detect? </li></ul><ul><li>The human ear can detect sound waves with frequencies between 20 and 20,000 Hz. </li></ul><ul><li>What is pitch? </li></ul><ul><li>The pitch of a sound becomes higher as the frequency of the sound increases. </li></ul>Key Questions 4
  15. 19. Frequency and Pitch <ul><li>The pitch of a sound is how high or low it sounds. </li></ul><ul><li>For example, a piccolo produces a high-pitched sound or tone, and a tuba makes a low-pitched sound. </li></ul><ul><li>The higher the pitch is, the higher the frequency is. </li></ul>
  16. 20. Frequency and Pitch <ul><li>A human ear can detect sound waves with frequencies between 20 Hz and 20,000 Hz. </li></ul><ul><li>Dogs can hear frequencies up to almost 50,000 Hz. </li></ul><ul><li>Dolphins and bats can hear frequencies as high as 150,000 Hz. </li></ul>
  17. 21. Frequency and Pitch <ul><li>Sound waves with a higher pitch have shorter wavelengths than those with a lower pitch. </li></ul><ul><li>If the wavelength is shorter, then more compressions and rarefactions will go past a given point every second than for a wave with a longer wavelength. </li></ul>
  18. 22. Echoes <ul><li>Sonar systems used sound waves to map objects underwater. </li></ul><ul><li>By measuring the length of time between emitting a pulse of sound and hearing its echo off the ocean floor, the distance to the ocean floor can be measured. </li></ul>
  19. 23. <ul><li>What is the Doppler Effect? </li></ul><ul><li>The Doppler effect is the change in frequency that occurs when a source of a sound is moving relative to the listener. </li></ul><ul><li>What is diffraction? </li></ul><ul><li>Diffraction occurs when sound waves bend around objects or spread out after passing through an opening. </li></ul>Key Questions 5
  20. 24. The Doppler Effect <ul><li>The change in frequency that occurs when a source of sound is moving relative to a listener is called the Doppler effect . </li></ul><ul><li>The Doppler effect occurs whether the sound source or the listener is moving. </li></ul>
  21. 25. The Doppler Effect <ul><li>Radar guns that are used to measure the speed of cars and baseball pitches also use the Doppler effect. </li></ul><ul><li>When the radio wave is reflected, its frequency changes depending on the speed of the object and whether it is moving toward the gun or away from it. </li></ul><ul><li>The radar gun uses the change in frequency of the reflected wave to determine the object’s speed. </li></ul>
  22. 26. Diffraction of Sound Waves <ul><li>Sound waves diffract, which means they can bend around obstacles or spread out after passing through narrow openings. </li></ul><ul><li>If the wavelength is much smaller than the obstacle, almost no diffraction occurs. </li></ul>
  23. 27. Using Sound Waves <ul><li>Ultrasound can be used to make images of the inside of the body. </li></ul><ul><li>Also, ultrasound along with the Doppler effect can be used to examine the functioning of the heart. </li></ul><ul><li>One common use of ultrasound is to examine a developing fetus. </li></ul>
  24. 28. <ul><li>Describe how the loudness of a sound wave changes when the amplitude of the wave increases. </li></ul><ul><li>Explain how the wavelength of a sound wave affects the diffraction of a sound wave through an open window. </li></ul><ul><li>Describe how echolocation could be used to measure the distance to the bottom of a lake. </li></ul><ul><li>Discuss how the spacing of particles in a sound wave changes as the amplitude of the wave decreases. </li></ul><ul><li>Describe how the wavelength of a sound wave changes if the frequency of the wave increases. </li></ul>Questions Section 19.1
