Temperature and Sound Waves 17:02, trigonometry, numeric, > 1 min, nor- mal. 001 A sound wave has a Frequency oF 700 Hz in air and a wavelength oF 0 . 5 m. What is the temperature oF the air? As- sume the velocity oF sound at 0 C is 331 m / s. Correct answer: 32 . 2409 C. Explanation: Let : f = 700 Hz , λ = 0 . 5 m , and v 0 = 331 m / s . The velocity oF sound is v s B ρ . Since the density decreases as the tempera- ture increases, the speed will increase with the square root oF the temperature. Assuming a linear dependence, we have ρ ρ 0 = 1 - T T 0 v v 0 = v u u u t B ρ 0 B ρ 0 µ 1 - T T 0 r 1 + T T 0 , or T T 0 = µ v v 0 2 - 1 . Since the speed oF the sound wave is v = λ f = (0 . 5 m) (700 Hz) = 350 m / s , wehave T = T 0 " µ v v 0 2 - 1 # = (273 C) " µ 350 m / s 331 m / s 2 - 1 # = 32 . 2409 C . keywords: Car Passing Stationary Siren 17:05, trigonometry, numeric, > 1 min, nor- mal. 002 A car, moving at 80 mi / hr, passes a station- ary police car whose siren has a Frequency oF 500 Hz. The velocity oF sound in air is 343 m / s . What is the Frequency change heard by an observer in the moving car as he passes the police car? (1 mi = 1.609 km) Correct answer: 104 . 244 Hz. Explanation: Let : v o = 80 mi / hr = 35 . 7556 m / s , and f = 500 Hz . When the observer is approaching the po- lice car, the Frequency he hears is f b = f µ 1 + v o v sound . While he is moving away From the police car, he hears the Following Frequency f a = f µ 1 - v o v sound . So the change oF the Frequency he hears is Δ f = | f a - f b | = 2 f v o v sound = 2 (500 Hz) (80 mi / hr) (343 m / s) = 104 . 244 s - 1 .
