Unformatted text preview: Chapter 16 CHAPTER 16 Sound 1. Because the sound travels both ways across the lake, we have L = ! vt = ! (343 m/s)(1.5 s) = 2.6 10 2 m . 2. ( a ) We find the extreme wavelengths from 1 = v / f 1 = (343 m/s)/(20 Hz) = 17 m; 2 = v / f 2 = (343 m/s)/(20,000 Hz) = 1.7 10 2 m = 1.7 cm. The range of wavelengths is 1.7 cm = = 17 m . ( b ) We find the wavelength from = v / f = (343 m/s)/(10 10 6 Hz) = 3.4 10 5 m . 3. The speed in the concrete is determined by the elastic modulus: v concrete = ( E / ) 1/2 = [(20 10 9 N/m 2 )/(2.3 10 3 kg/m 3 )] 1/2 = 2.95 10 3 m/s. For the time interval we have ? t = ( d / v air ) ( d / v concrete ); 1.4 s = d {[1/(343 m/s)] [1/(2.95 10 3 m/s)] }, which gives d = 5.4 10 2 m . 4. ( a ) For the time interval in sea water we have ? t = d / v water = (1.0 10 3 m)/(1560 m/s) = 0.64 s . ( b ) For the time interval in the air we have ? t = d / v air = (1.0 10 3 m)/(343 m/s) = 2.9 s . 5. If we let L 1 represent the thickness of the top layer, the total transit time is t = ( L 1 / v 1 ) + [( L L 1 )/ v 2 )]; 4.5 s = [ L 1 /(331 m/s)] + [(1500 m L 1 )/(343 m/s)], which gives L 1 = 1200 m . Thus the bottom layer is 1500 m 1200 m = 300 m . 6. Because the distance is d = vt , the change in distance from the change in velocity is ? d = t ? v ; so the percentage change is (? d / d )100 = (? v / v )100 = (343 m/s 331 m/s)(100)/(343 m/s) = 3.5% . 7. We find the displacement amplitude from ? P M = 2p vD M f . ( a ) For the frequency of 100 Hz, we have 3.0 10 3 Pa = 2p(1.29 kg/m 3 )(331 m/s) D M (100 Hz), which gives D M = 1.1 10 8 m . ( b ) For the frequency of 10 kHz, we have 3.0 10 3 Pa = 2p(1.29 kg/m 3 )(331 m/s) D M (10 10 3 Hz), which gives D M = 1.1 10 10 m . 8. We find the pressure amplitude from ? P M = 2p vD M f . ( a ) For the frequency of 50 Hz, we have ? P M = 2p(1.29 kg/m 3 )(331 m/s)(3 10 10 m)(50 Hz) = 4 10 5 Pa . ( b ) For the frequency of 5.0 kHz, we have ? P M = 2p(1.29 kg/m 3 )(331 m/s)(3 10 10 m)(5.0 10 3 Hz) = 4 10 3 Pa ....
