Unformatted text preview: PHYS 132, WEEK 2 20.2. Model: This is a wave traveling at constant speed. The pulse moves 1 m to the left every second.
Visualize: Please refer to Figure Ex20.2. This snapshot graph shows the wave at all points on the x-axis at t = 2 s. You can see that the leading edge of the wave at t = 2 s is precisely at x = 0 m. That is, in the first 2 seconds, the displacement is zero at x = 0 m. The first part of the wave causes a downward displacement of the medium, so immediately after t = 2 s the displacement at x = 0 m will be negative. The negative portion of the wave pulse is 3 m wide and takes 3 s to pass x = 0 m. The positive portion begins to pass through x = 0 m at t = 5 s and until t = 8 s the displacement of the medium is positive. The displacement at x = 0 m returns to zero at t = 8 s and remains zero for all later times. 20.9. Model: The wave is a traveling wave on a stretched string.

Thus, l = 10 m when 4fpD= , and l = 5 m when . The crests corresponding to these two wavelengths are shown in the figure. One can see that a crest of the wave passes the 40 m-listener and the 30 m-listener simultaneously. The lowest two possible frequencies will occur for the largest two possible wavelengths, which are 10 m and 5 m. Thus, the lowest frequency is 1340 m/s34 Hz10 mvfl=== 2 68 Hzf=
