Unformatted text preview: the same sound power passes through patches 1 and 2, and the intensity at each one is the same, their areas must also be the same, A1 = A2. The same sound power passes through patch 3, but the intensity at that surface is smaller than that at patches 1 and 2. Thus, the area A3 of patch 3 is larger than that of surface 1 or 2. In summary, A3 is the largest area, followed by A1 and A2, which are equal. SOLUTION a. The sound intensity at the inner spherical surface is given by Equation 16.9 as IA = P 2.3 W 2 = = 0.51 W/m 2 2 4 π rA 4 π ( 0.60 m ) This intensity is the same at all points on the inner surface, since all points are equidistant from the sound source. Therefore, the sound intensity at patches 1 and 2 are equal; I1 = I2 = 0.51 W/m 2 . The sound intensity at the outer spherical surface is IB = P 2.3 W 2 = = 0.29 W/m 2 2 4 π rB 4 π ( 0.80 m ) 866 WAVES AND SOUND This intensity is the same at all points on outer surface. Therefore, the sound intensity at patch 3 is I3 = 0.29 W/m 2 . b. The area of a patch is given by Equation 16.8 as the sound power passing perpendicularly through that area divided by the sound intensity, A = P/I. The areas of the three patches are: −3 Patch 1 A1 = P 1.8 × 10 W = = 3.5 × 10−3 m 2 I1 0.51 W/m 2 Patch 2 A2 = P 1.8 × 10−3 W −3 2 = = 3.5 × 10 m 2 I2 0.51 W/m Patch 3 P 1.8 × 10−3 W −3 2 A3 = = = 6.2 × 10 m 2 I 3 0.29 W/m These answers are consistent with our discussion in the REASONING. ______________________________________________________________________________ 55. REASONING AND SOLUTION Since the sound spreads out uniformly in all directions, the intensity is uniform over any sphere centered on the source. From text Equation 16.9, P I= 4π r 2 Then, I1 P /(4π r12 ) r22 = = I 2 P /(4π r22 ) r12 Solving for r2, we obtain I1 2.0 × 10−6 W/m 2 = (120 m ) = 190 m I2 0.80 ×10−6 W/m 2 ______________________________________________________________________________ r2 = r1 56. REASONING AND SOLUTION The intensity of the "direct" sound is given by text Equation 16.9, P I DIRECT = 4π r 2 The total intensity at the point in question is ITOTAL = IDIRECT + IREFLECTED 1.1 × 10−3 W + 4.4×10−6 W/m 2 = 1.4 ×10 –5 W/m2 = 2 4π (3.0 m) ______________________________________________________________________________ Chapter 16 Problems 57. 867 SSM REASONING AND SOLUTION According to Equation 16.8, the power radiated by the speaker is P = IA = Iπ r 2 , where r is the radius of the circular opening. Thus, the radiated power is P = (17.5 W/m 2 )(π )(0.0950 m) 2 = 0.496 W As a percentage of the electrical power, this is 0.496 W × 100 % = 1.98 % 25.0 W ______________________________________________________________________________ The sound intensity I a distance r from a source broadcasting sound P (Equation 16.9), where P is the sound uniformly in all directions is given by I = 4π r 2 power of the source. The total sound intensity Itot that the man hears at either position is the sum of the intensities I1 and I2 due to the two speakers. 58. REASONING SOLUTION a. When the man is halfway between the speakers, his distance r from either speaker is half the 30.0-m distance between the speakers: r = 15.0 m. The total sound intensity at that P position is, therefore, twice the intensity I = (Equation 16.9) of either speaker alone: 4π r 2 P 0.500 W P I tot = 2 = = = 3.54 × 10 −4 W/m 2 2 2 2 4π r 2π r 2π (15.0 m ) b. In part (a), the man is r = 15.0 m from either speaker. After he has walked 4.0 m towards speaker 1, his distance from that speaker is r1 = 15.0 m − 4.0 m = 11.0 m, and his distance from speaker 2 is r2 = 15.0 m + 4.0 m = 19.0 m. The total sound intensity at his final position is, therefore, I tot = I1 + I 2 = P P P1 1 0.500 W 1 1 + = + 2 + 2= 2 2 2 2 r 4π 4π r1 4π r2 4π 1 r2 (19.0 m ) (11.0 m ) = 4.39 × 10−4 W/m 2 868 WAVES AND SOUND 59. REASONING According to Equation 16.8, the intensity I of a sound wave is equal to the sound power P divided by the area A through which the power passes; I = P/A. The area is that of a circle, so A = π r2, where r is the radius. The power, on the other hand, is the energy E per unit time, P = E/t, according to Equation 6.10b. Thus, we have E P I= = t2 A πr All the variables in this equation are known except for the time. SOLUTION Solving the expression above for the time yields t= E 4800 J = 2 Iπ r 5.9 × 103 W/m 2 π 1.8 × 10−2 m ( )( ) 2 = 8.0 × 102 s ______________________________________________________________________________ 60. REASONING Because d source 1 (the source at the origin) is more powerful than x d−x source 2, both locations of equal sound intensity will be A B closer to source 2 than to Source 1 Source 2 source 1. One point, A, is between the sources, and the other, B, is on the opposite side of source 2 (see the drawing). Let x be the distance from the source 1 to point A, and d = 123 m be the distance between the sources. The intensities I1 and I2 of the sound from the s...
