Ch apter 11 - Answer to Problems 3 ,13, 21 , 25 , 49 3. The intensity of the sound wave from a jet airplane as it is taking off is 1.0 2 W/m 2 at a distance of 5.0 m. What is the intensity of the sound wave that reaches the ears of a person standing at a d istance of 120 m from the runway? Assume that the sound wave radiates from the airplane equally in all directions. Answer: The intensity of the sound as a function of the distance is given by I 2 /I 1 = (P/4pr 2 2 ) / (P/4pr 1 2 ) = r 1 2 /r 2 2 I 2 = I 1 x(r 1 2 /r 2 2 ) = (1.0x10 2 W/m 2 )x(5.0m/120m) 2 =170 x10 -3 W /m 2 13. What is the wavelength of a wave whose speed and period are 75.0m/s and 5.00ms respectively Given: v=75.0m/s ; T=5.00msQuestion: ? 21. .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
