15.78: a) Consider the derivation of the speed of a longitudinal wave in Section 16.2. Instead of the bulk modulus B , the quantity of interest is the change in force per fractional length change. The force constant k is the change in force force per length change, so the force change per fractional length change is , L k the applied force at one end is ) )( ( v v L k F y = and the longitudinal impulse when this force is applied for a time t is . v v Lt k y The change in longitudinal momentum is

    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.

    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.
