Unformatted text preview: Sinusoidal Sound - Get the Formula from Plot Get How to get the formula form a plot – The key is to determine the three parameters – Amplitude (A): read directly from the graph – Frequency (f): Frequency Get the period (T) directly from the graph f = 1/T – Phase (Φ): Phase Based on where the vibration starts in the graph, get Based the phase (one of the four extreme phase conditions) the Get the formula from plot - Example Example Amplitude (A): read directly from the graph, 400 Frequency (f): Frequency – Get the period (T) directly from the graph, T = 4 ms – f = 1/T = 1 / 4ms = 1 / 0.004 sec = 250 Hz d = 400*sin(2π*250*t + π) *250*t Phase (Φ): Phase – Based on the fact that the vibration starts from the max negative Based displacement, Φ = π Sinusoidal w aves 500 400 300 A m p lit u d e 200 100 0 -100 Tone 2 0.0 0.5 1.0 1.5 2.0 2.5 -200 -300 -400 -500 Tim e (ms) 3.0 3.5 4.0 4.5 5.0 Summary Summary Vibration of air molecules – Simple harmonic motion – Uniform circular motion Physical description of SHM – Three parameters: amplitude, frequency, and phase – Plot sinusoidal wave – Write out the physical formula based the waveform plot...
