Unformatted text preview: 2004 AP® PHYSICS B FREE-RESPONSE QUESTIONS (Form B) Resonance l Resonance 2 Note: Figure not drawn to scale. 3. (15 points) A vibrating tuning fork is held above a column of air, as shown in the diagrams above. The reservoir is raised and lowered to change the water level, and thus the length of the column of air. The shortest length of air column that produces a resonance is Ll = 0.25 m , and the next resonance is heard when the air column is L2 = 0.80 m long. The speed of sound in air at 20°C is 343 m/s and the speed of sound in water is 1490 m/s. (a) Calculate the wavelength of the standing sound wave produced by this tuning fork. (b) Calculate the frequency of the tuning fork that produces the standing wave, assuming the air is at 20°C. (c) Calculate the wavelength of the sound waves. produced by this tuning fork in the water. (d) The water level is lowered again until a third resonance is heard. Calculate the length L3 of the air column that produces this third resonance. (e) The student performing this experiment determines that the temperature of the room is actually slightly higher than 20°C. Is the calculation of the frequency in part (b) too high, too low, or still correct? Too high Too low Still correct Justify your answer. Copyright © 2004 by College Entrance Examination Board.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
