Unformatted text preview: IPHO 2003 Theoretical Question 2 ( Solution ) (2003/07/17) p.1/5 Solution Theoretical Question 2 A Piezoelectric Crystal Resonator under an Alternating Voltage Part A (a) Refer to Figure A1. The left face of the rod moves a distance v t while the pressure wave travels a distance u t with / Y u = . The strain at the left face is u v t u t v S = = = (A1a)* 1 From Hookes law, the pressure at the left face is uv u v Y YS p = = = (A1b)* (b) The velocity v is related to the displacement as in a simple harmonic motion (or a uniform circular motion, as shown in Figure A2) of angular frequency ku = . Therefore, if ) ( sin ) , ( t u x k t x = , then ) ( cos ) , ( t u x k ku t x v = . (A2)* The strain and pressure are related to velocity as in Problem (a). Hence, ) ( cos / ) , ( ) , ( t u x k k u t x v t x S = = (A3)* ) ( cos ) , ( ) ( cos ) , ( ) , ( 2 t u x k kY t x YS t u x k u k t x uv t x p = = = = (A4)* Alternatively, the answers may be obtained by differentiations: ) ( cos ) , ( t u x k ku t t x v = = , ) ( cos ) , ( t u x k k x t x S = = , 1 An equations marked with an asterisk contains answer to the problem. p u t t=0 t/2 p p Figure A1 v t t p p kx t v x Figure A2 IPHO 2003 Theoretical Question 2 ( Solution ) (2003/07/17) p.2/5 ) ( cos ) , ( t u x k kY x Y t x p = = . Part B (c) Since the angular frequency and speed of propagation u are given, the wavelength is given by = 2 / k with k = / u . The spatial variation of the displacement is therefore described by...
