2 Sound ResonancesConsider a pipe of length L, open at one end, closed at the other end.At resonance, a displacement antinode at the open end, and a displacement node at the closed end.The longest wavelength to satisfy this condition isFundamental resonant frequencyHarmonics:
3 Pipe open at both ends: displacement antinodes at both ends Pipe open at both ends: displacement antinodes at both ends. open end closed at the other end.Pipe closed at both ends: displacement nodes at both ends.In both cases:The same expression as in string with both ends fixed.

6 The Doppler EffectThe Doppler Effect: the frequency change related to the motions of the source or/and detectorIn the following, the speed is measured with respect to the air, through which the sound wave travels
7 Detector Moving, Source Stationary The detector stationary:Divided by l to get the number of periods in time tDistance the sound travels in time tPeriods in unit time: frequencyThe detector moving toward the source: more periods reaches detector. Equivalently:
8 The detector moving toward the source: vD is the SPEED, always positiveIn general:+ : toward S-: away from S
9 Source Moving, Detector Stationary The source stationary:Distance between two wavefronts period T apartThe source moving toward the detector : waves are squeezed. Equivalently:
10 The source moving toward the detector : vS is the SPEED, always positiveThe source moving toward the detector :In general:-: toward D+: away fromD
11 In General+ : toward S-: away from S+: away from D-: toward DAll speeds are measured with respect to the medium of propagation: the air
12 At Low Speed Relative speed: + : toward each other -: away from each otherRelative speed:
13 Supersonic SpeedWhen vS>v, the equation no longer applicable: Supersonic speedThe wavefronts form a Mach ConeA Shock Wave is generated: abrupt change of air pressureThe source moving toward the detector :

A tuning fork vibrating at 686 Hz is held just over the open top end of the tube. At what positions of the water level will there be a resonance?Let L be the length of the air column. Then the condition for resonance is:

The beat frequency decreases when a small piece of wax in put on a prong of the first fork. What is the frequency of this fork?fbeat = 3 Hz f1 = 381 or 387 HzResonant frequencyMass increases f1 decreasesfbeat decreases f1 becomes closer to 384 HzTherefore, f1 = 387 Hz
16 HRW 68E (5th ed.). The 16,000 Hz whine of the turbines in the jet engines of an aircraft moving with speed 200 m/s is heard at what frequency by the pilot of a second aircraft trying to overtake the first at a speed of 250 m/s?The detector moves toward the source: take the plus sign for vD.The source moves away from the detector : take the plus sign for vS.
