  • Slide 4
  • SOUND WAVES Sound is a longitudinal wave produced by a vibration that travels away from the source through solids, liquids, or gases, but not through a vacuum. So sound waves are also Mechanical waves- they require a medium to be transmitted
  • Slide 5
  • Since a sound wave consists of a repeating pattern of high pressure and low pressure regions moving through a medium, it is sometimes referred to as a pressure wave. The above diagram can be somewhat misleading if you are not careful. The representation of sound by a sine wave is merely an attempt to illustrate the sinusoidal nature of the pressure-time fluctuations. Do not conclude that sound is a transverse wave which has crests and troughs.
  • Slide 6
  • v = f To find the speed of a wave. v is the speed of the wave is the wavelength and f is the frequency
  • Slide 7
  • Example 1 : Measurements show that the wavelength of a sound wave in a certain material is 18.0 cm. The frequency of the wave is 1900 Hz. What is the speed of the sound wave? = 0.18 m f = 1900 Hz v = f = 0.18m (1900 Hz) = 342 m/s
  • Slide 8
  • V= 330m/s + 0.6 T Where 330 m/s is the speed of sound at 0C, and T is the temperature in C. At 20C the speed is 342 m/s. and the speed of sound depends on the material that the sound is traveling through. The speed depends on the density of the elasticity of the medium.

  • Slide 9
  • Speed of sound = 342 m/s at 20 C Speed of light = 300,000,000 m/s Rule : See lightning, start counting seconds until sound is heard. Divide by five to obtain distance of lightning Example: 10 sec / 5 = 2 miles The rule of five for lightning Why?
  • Slide 10
  • We detect two characteristic of sound: pitch and loudness. Pitch is how high or low the sound seems. (use forks and wave box) It is measured by the frequency. The higher the frequency the higher the pitch. The lower the frequency the lower the pitch. Loudness refers to the Intensity of a sound. Energy in a wave is show by the amplitude It is measured in decibels (db) (a logarithmic scale)
  • Slide 11
  • What we hear depends on the frequency and the intensity of the sound. We hear frequencies in the range of 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz. This is called the audible (or Sonic) range. ultrasonic infrasonic
  • Slide 12
  • Relative Intensity Source Intensity in Decibels Normal breathing 10 Whisper20 Conversation60 Street traffic70 Rock concert115 Threshold of pain 120 Jet engine140 What we hear is also affected by the motion of the source or us http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J43lAESftPs
  • Slide 13
  • The movie at left shows a stationary sound source. Sound waves are produced at a constant frequency and wave-fronts move symmetrically away from the source at a constant speed v. The observers at A and B, here the same pitched sound. AB http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BbIcC1I6pZg
  • Slide 14
  • In the movie below, the same sound source is radiating sound waves at a constant frequency in the same medium. However, now the sound source is moving to the right with a speed 100m/s Notice listener B is receiving waves that are closer together and he hears a higher apparent frequency than before. B A Notice listener A is receiving waves that are further apart and he hears a lower apparent frequency than before.
  • Slide 15
  • DOPPLER EFFECT When a source of sound and/or a listener are moving, the apparent pitch of the sound changes. This phenomenon is known as the Doppler effect. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5KaeCZ_AaY
  • Slide 16
  • DOPPLER EFFECT: The pitch heard by the listener is given by the following equation: Units: Hz f' is the frequency of the sound heard by the listener (observer), f S is the frequency of the sound emitted by the source, v is the speed of sound in air, v S is the velocity of the source, and v o is the velocity of the listener (observer). Sign Convention: (+) for approaching velocities and (-) for receding velocities.
  • Slide 17
  • Example 2: A fire truck siren emits sound at a frequency of 400 Hz on a day when the speed of sound is 340 m/s. a. What is the pitch of the sound heard when the truck is moving toward a stationary observer at a speed of 20 m/s? v = 340 m/s f S = 400 Hz v S = 20 m/s = 425 Hz b. What is the pitch heard when the truck is moving away from the observer at this speed? v S = - 20 m/s = 377.78 Hz
  • Slide 18
  • SOURCES OF SOUND Sound comes from a vibrating object. If an object vibrates with frequency and intensity within the audible range, it produces sound we can hear. MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS Wind Instruments: Open Pipe: flute and some organ pipes Closed Pipe: clarinet, oboe and saxophone String Instruments: guitar, violin and piano Percussion Instruments: Drums, bells, cymbals
  • Slide 19
  • As a string vibrates, it sets surrounding air molecules into vibrational motion. (called forced vibrations) The frequency at which these air molecules vibrate is equal to the frequency of vibration of the guitar string. Forced vibrations: the vibration of an object caused by another vibrating object
  • Slide 20
  • The sounds produced by vibrating strings are not very loud. Many stringed instruments make use of a sounding board or box, sometimes called a resonator, to amplify the sounds produced. The strings on a piano are attached to a sounding board while for guitar strings a sound box is used. When the string is plucked and begins to vibrate, the sounding board or box begins to vibrate as well (forced vibrations). Since the board or box has a greater area in contact with the air, it tends to amplify the sounds. On a guitar or a violin, the length of the strings are the same, but their mass per length is different. That changes the velocity and so the frequency changes. (demo music box)
  • Slide 21
  • A guitar or piano string is fixed at both ends and when the string is plucked, standing waves can be produced in the string. Standing waves are produced by interference Resulting in nodes an antinodes 2-antinode http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uENITui5_jU
  • Slide 22
  • Standing Waves The nodes and antinodes remain in a fixed position for a given frequency. There can be more than one frequency for standing waves in a single string. Frequencies at which standing waves can be produced are called the natural (or resonant) frequencies.
  • Slide 23
  • Standing Waves Since the ends are fixed, they will be the nodes. The wavelengths of the standing waves have a simple relation to the length of the string. lowest fundamental frequency The lowest frequency called the fundamental frequency has only one antinode. That corresponds to half a wavelength:
  • Slide 24
  • The other natural frequencies are called overtones. They are also called harmonics and they are integer multiples of the fundamental. first harmonic The fundamental is called the first harmonic. second harmonic The next frequency has two antinodes and is called the second harmonic.
  • Slide 25
  • The equation for strings is f frequency in hertz n number of antinodes L length of string in meters v velocity is medium in meters/sec - n can be any integer value greater than one.
  • Slide 26
  • Example 3: What is the fundamental frequency of a viola string that is 35.0 cm long when the speed of waves on this string is 346 m/s? L = 0.35 m v = 346 m/s = 494.2 Hz What is frequency of the third harmonic produced by this string? = 1482.6 Hz
  • Slide 27
  • WIND INSTRUMENTS Wind instruments produce sound from the vibrations of standing waves in columns of air inside a pipe or a tube. In a string, the ends are nodes. In air columns the ends can be either nodes or antinodes. (demo pipes, straw and bottles) Open at both ends pipe Closed at one end pipe
  • Slide 28
  • So for an Open tube
  • Slide 29
  • For a half-closed tube 4 Why a 4?
  • Slide 30
  • a) For open pipe The overtones will be all multiples of the fundamental n = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 b) For closed pipe The harmonics will be the odd multiples of the fundamental n = 1, 3, 5, 7, HARMONICS
  • Slide 31
  • both ends Example 4: A pipe that is open at both ends has a fundamental frequency of 125 Hz. If the pipe is 1.32 m long, what is the speed of the waves in the pipe? f' = 125 Hz L = 1.32 m
  • Slide 32
  • INTERFERENCE OF SOUND WAVES: BEATS If two sources are close in frequency, the sound from them interferes and what we hear is an alternating sound level. The level rise and falls. If the alternating sound is regular, it is called beats. (Demo tuning forks)
  • Slide 33
  • The beat frequency equals the difference in frequencies between the sources. f beats = f 2 f 1 This is a way to tune musical instruments. Compare a tuning fork to a note and tune until the beats disappear. CI Constructive Interference DI Destructive Interference
