(e.g. sound waves regions of high and low pressure) BkA p = max The maximum pressure exerted by a sound wave in a medium is: B = Bulk Modulus K = wave number A = Amplitude How might I change the pressure of a wave, assuming I keep its wave equation the same? BkA p = max The maximum pressure exerted by a sound wave in a medium is: B = Bulk Modulus K = wave number A = Amplitude If a wave goes from one material to another, what happens to it? Does the wave function change, or not? Defend your answer....
