Unformatted text preview: Ch 16: Sound Waves Focus: Pressure waves 1) Sound Speed: v = B/ v= E/ ( Like v = T / ) B = bulk modulus E = elastic modulus 2) Travelling wave: D = DM sin(k x - t ) PM = 2 v DM f Max pressure change: 3) Decibel Scale dB: Log scale based on a reference intensity: I 0 = 1.00 10 -12 W/m 2 Example: I (in dB) = 10 log10 I0 = 20 dB I = 10 -10 W/m 2 Ch 16: Sound Waves P = IA 4) Power Recall: I = intensity in W/m2 and A = area in m2 For spherical wave, A1 = 4 p r12 r1 = distance from small source and similarly for 2 I1 A1 = I 2 A2 5) Vibrating Air Columns length L: node L = 1 / 2 L = 1 / 4 Closed pipe-nodes at ends Open pipe--antinodes in displacement at ends L = 2 Draw Pictures! L = 33 / 4 Ch 16: Sound Waves 6) Beats: D1 = DM sin(2 f1 t ) D 2 = DM sin(2 f 2 t ) Beat frequency: | f1 - f 2 | D =D1 + D 2 7) Interference: Waves from two spatially separated sources l = distance between successive crests or troughs r1 = distance from source 1 to P P r2 = distance from source 1 to P (Assume sources driven in phase.) Constructive interference: r1 - r2 1 2 (Crests meet crests) Destructive interference: r1 - r2 = integer = half an odd integer (Crests meet troughs) Ch 16: Sound Waves 8) Doppler Effect: v = sound speed vobs = observer speed vsource = source speed Observed frequency: v obs 1 v f= f v source 1m v f = frequency at the source Frequency increases if source/observer move toward each other (upper signs, numerator, denominator) Frequency decreases if source/observer move away from each other ...
