Producing a Sound Wave Sound waves are longitudinal waves traveling through a medium A tuning fork can be used as an example of producing a sound wave This picture is not in the new version, but fits very nicely. Either omit or see if it can stay.

Using a Tuning Fork to Produce a Sound Wave A tuning fork will produce a pure musical note As the tines vibrate, they disturb the air near them As the tine swings to the right, it forces the air molecules near it closer together This produces a high density area in the air This is an area of compression

Using a Tuning Fork, cont. As the tine moves toward the left, the air molecules to the right of the tine spread out This produces an area of low density This area is called a rarefaction
Background image of page 4
Using a Tuning Fork, final As the tuning fork continues to vibrate, a succession of compressions and rarefactions spread out from the fork A sinusoidal curve can be used to represent the longitudinal wave Crests correspond to compressions and troughs to rarefactions

Categories of Sound Waves Audible waves Lay within the normal range of hearing of the human ear Normally between 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz Infrasonic waves Frequencies are below the audible range Earthquakes are an example Ultrasonic waves Frequencies are above the audible range Dog whistles are an example

Applications of Ultrasound Can be used to produce images of small objects Widely used as a diagnostic and treatment tool in medicine Ultrasonic flow meter to measure blood flow May use piezoelectric devices that transform electrical energy into mechanical energy Reversible: mechanical to electrical Ultrasounds to observe babies in the womb Cavitron Ultrasonic Surgical Aspirator (CUSA) used to surgically remove brain tumors Ultrasonic ranging unit for cameras

Intensity of Sound Waves The average intensity I of a wave on a given surface is defined as the rate at which the energy flows through the surface divided by the surface area, A The direction of energy flow is perpendicular
