2 In this course, a sound wave is roughly defined as any longitudinal wave (particles moving along the direction of wave propagation). Sound Waves 17- Fig. 17-2 Wavefronts : surfaces over which the the oscillations due to the sound wave have the same value, e.g, at maximum crest. Rays : directed lines perpendicular to the wavefronts, indicate direction the direction of travel of the wavefronts Spherical waves Plane waves Particle motion
3 Speed of any mechanical wave depend on both Inertial properties of medium (to store kinetic energy) Elastic properties of medium (to store potential energy) The Speed of Sound 17- elastic property inertial property v τ μ = = In air (volume density) and (bulk modulus) B ρ change in pressure produces a fractional change in volume Material that is hard to compress large p B V V p V V B = - Speed of Sound: B v =
