REASONING AND SOLUTION a. The travel time is t = x/v = (2.70 m)/(343 m/s) = 7.87 × 10 –3 s b. The wavelength is λ = v/f = (343 m/s)/(523 Hz) = 0.656 m (16.1) The number of wavelengths in 2.70 m is, therefore, Number of wavelengths = (2.70 m)/(0.656 m) = 4.12 ______________________________________________________________________________ 91. SSM REASONING AND SOLUTION The speed of sound in a liquid is given by Equation 16.6, v = Bad / ρ , where Bad is the adiabatic bulk modulus and ρ is the density of the liquid. Solving for Bad, we obtain Bad = v ρ . Values for the speed of sound in fresh water and in ethyl alcohol are given in Table 16.1. The ratio of the adiabatic bulk modulus of fresh water to that of ethyl alcohol at 20°C is, therefore, 2 2 ( Bad )water vwater ρ water (1482 m/s) 2 (998 kg/m3 ) =2 = = ( Bad )ethyl alcohol vethyl alcohol ρethyl alcohol (1162 m/s)2 (789 kg/m3 ) 2.06 ______________________________________________________________________________ 92. REASONING The observed frequency changes because of the Doppler effect. As you drive toward the parked car (a stationary source of sound), the Doppler effect is that given by Equation 16.13. As you drive away from the parked car, Equation 16.14 applies. SOLUTION Equations 16.13 and 16.14 give the observed frequency fo in each case: fo, toward = fs (1 + vo /v ) 1444 24444 4 3 Driving toward parked car and fo, away = f (1 – vo /v ) 1444 s 2444 3 Driving away from parked car Subtracting the equation on the right from the one on the left gives the change in the observed frequency: fo, toward – fo, away = 2 fs vo /v Solving for the observer’s speed (which is your speed), we obtain Chapter 16 Problems vo = ( v fo, toward – fo, away 891 ) = (343 m/s )(95 Hz ) = 17 m/s 2 fs 2 ( 960 Hz ) ______________________________________________________________________________ 93. SSM WWW REASONING According to Equation 16.2, the linear density of the string is given by (m / L ) = F / v 2 , where the speed v of waves on the middle C string is given by 1 Equation 16.1, v = f λ = λ , where T is the period. T SOLUTION Combining Equations 16.2 and 16.1 and using the given data, we obtain F FT 2 (944 N)(3.82 ×10 –3 s)2 = 2= = 8.68 × 10 –3 kg/m v2 λ (1.26 m) 2 ______________________________________________________________________________ m/ L = 94. REASONING AND SOLUTION a. Since 15 boxcars pass by in 12.0 s, the boxcars pass by with a frequency of f= 15 = 1.25 Hz 12.0 s b. Since the length of a boxcar corresponds to the wavelength λ of a wave, we have, from Equation 16.1, that v = f λ = (1.25 Hz ) (14.0 m ) = 17.5 m/s ______________________________________________________________________________ 95. SSM REASONING This is a situation in which the intensities Iman and Iwoman (in watts per square meter) detected by the man and the woman are compared using the intensity level β, expressed in decibels. This comparison is based on Equation 16.10, which we rewrite as follows: I β = (10 dB ) log man I woman SOLUTION Using Equation 16.10, we have I man I woman β = 7.8 dB = (10 dB ) log Solving for the intensity ratio gives or I log man I woman 7.8 dB = 0.78 = 10 dB 892 WAVES AND SOUND I man = 100.78 = 6.0 I woman ______________________________________________________________________________ 96. REASONING AND SOLUTION We have I = P/A. Therefore, P = IA = (3.2 × 10–6 W/m2)(2.1 × 10–3 m2) = 6.7 × 10 –9 W (16.8) ______________________________________________________________________________ 97. SSM REASONING When the end of the Slinky is moved up and down continuously, a transverse wave is produced. The distance between two adjacent crests on the wave, is, by definition, one wavelength. The wavelength λ is related to the speed and frequency of a periodic wave by λ = v / f (Equation 16.1). In order to use Equation 16.1, we must first determine the frequency of the wave. The wave on the Slinky will have the same frequency as the simple harmonic motion of the hand. According to the data given in the problem statement, the frequency is f = (2.00 cycles)/(1 s) = 2.00 Hz . SOLUTION Substituting the values for λ and f, we find that the distance between crests is v 0.50 m/s = = 0.25 m f 2.00 Hz ______________________________________________________________________________ λ= 98. REASONING AND SOLUTION Using Equation 16.1, we find that λ = v/f = (343 m/s)/(4185.6 Hz) = 8.19 × 10 –2 m (16.1) ______________________________________________________________________________ 99. SSM REASONING Since you detect a frequency that is smaller than that emitted by the car when the car is stationary, the car must be moving away from you. Therefore, according to Equation 16.12, the frequency fo heard by a stationary observer from a source moving a...
