(b) so This is about 31,000 times faster than the speed in Problem 12.46b. Reflect: Even though the sound wave intensity level is very high, the rate at which energy is delivered to the eardrum is very small, because the area of the eardrum is very small. 12.48. Set Up: with Solve: (a) gives and (b) (c) gives and (d) Intensity obeys the inverse square law but noise level does not. 12.49. Set Up: Example 12.9 shows that Solve: (a) gives and (b) gives (c) gives Reflect: Every doubling of the intensity increases the decibel level by 3.0 dB. 12.50. Set Up: The other player’s note can be either larger or smaller than 440 Hz. Solve: so the other player’s note could have frequency or 12.51. Set Up: Solve: 12.52. Set Up: and Solve: so 14 beats each second. 12.53. Set Up: Solve: (a) The frequency of the other propeller differs by 2.0 Hz, so the frequency of the other propeller is either 11.6 Hz or 7.6 Hz. These frequencies correspond to 696 rpm or 456 rpm. (b) When the speed and rpm of the second propeller is increased the beat frequency increases, so the frequency of the second propeller moves farther from the frequency of the first and the second propeller is turning at 696 rpm.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
