P x b b 14 m What is the intensity of the sound waves at point x , 14.0 m away? Correct answer: 0 . 0434428 W / m 2 . Explanation: Basic Concept: intensity = P 4 r 2 Given: P = 107 . 0 W r = 14 . 0 m Solution: intensity = 107 W 4 (14 m) 2 = 0 . 0434428 W / m 2 002 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points Two loudspeakers are placed on a wall 4 . 92 m apart. A listener stands directly in front of one of the speakers, 79 . 6 m from the wall. The speakers are being driven by the same electric signal generated by a harmonic oscillator of frequency 1070 Hz. The speed of the sound in air is 343 m / s. What is the phase difference between the two waves (generated by each speaker) when they reach the listener? Correct answer: 2 . 97744 rad. Explanation: Let : r 1 = 79 . 6 m , f = 1070 Hz , and v = 343 m / s . Each speaker produces a spherical wave of the form P sin( ) , = k r t (0) . where r is the straightline distance from the speaker to the listener. The two speakers have equal frequencies 1 = 2 = and equal initial phases (0) 1 = (0) 2 = (0) , but they are at different distances from the listener: The distance to the first speaker is r 1 = 79 . 6 m but the distance to the second speaker is r 2 = radicalBig (79 . 6 m) 2 + (4 . 92 m) 2 = 79 . 7519 m . Consequently, there is a phase difference be tween the two waves 2 1 = parenleftBig k r 2 t (0) parenrightBig parenleftBig k r 1 t (0) parenrightBig = k ( r 2 r 1 ) . The wavenumber of each sound wave fol lows from wavelength which in turn follows from the frequency: k = 2 = 2 f v = 2 (1070 Hz) 343 m / s = 19 . 6006 rad / m . Consequently, the phase difference is = k ( r 2 r 1 ) = (19 . 6006 rad / m) (79 . 7519 m 79 . 6 m) = 2 . 97744 rad . homework 40 Turner (58185) 1 hinojosa (jlh3938) homework 40 Turner (58185) 2 003 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points Suppose the waves generated by each speaker have equal pressure amplitudes P max 1 = P max 2 = P max = 0 . 0074 Pa at the listeners location. What is the pressure amplitude P max 1+2 of the combined sound of the two speakers? Correct answer: 0 . 00121339 Pa. Explanation: Let : P max = 0 . 0074 Pa . The two individual waves have pressures P 1 = P max sin( 1 ) , P 2 = P max sin( 2 ) . Adding them up to obtain the combined sound wave, we find P 1+2 = P 1 + P 2 = P max bracketleftBig sin( 1 ) + sin( 2 ) bracketrightBig = P max 2 cos parenleftbigg 2 1 2 parenrightbigg sin parenleftbigg 2 + 1 2 parenrightbigg = P max 2 cos parenleftbigg 2 parenrightbigg sin k r 1 + r 2 2 t...
