Sound as a Wave v sound = f λ v sound = Y ρ , in solid v sound = B ρ , in liquid v sound = 343 m / s + 0.6 m /( s o C )×( T 20 o C ) , in air I p amp 2 I 1 r 2 Acoustic Thermometry, can be used to measure temperature. Ex: Oceans Can be dependent on T.

Decibels The lowest (approximately) intensity sound detectable by the human ear is I 0 = 1.00x10 -12 W/m 2 . This value is related to the smallest pressure difference detectable by the human ear ~ 2x10 -5 Pa. Examples: I 0 = 0dB. 10xI 0 = 10dB 100xI 0 = 20dB 50dB = ? β= 10 log ( I I 0 ) , intensity measured in decibels, dB
