Feb 2008C.M. Bali13 Sound: Longitudinal Mechanical Waves Sound is a longitudinal wave, but they are drawn as transverse waves, to make the information clear. Sound is a mechanical wave as it requires a material medium such as air or metal or any other material for its transmission as well as a source of energy that disturbs the material medium. Click on the link below to see longitudinal and transverse waves. Pay attention to the source of disturbance and the material medium that transmits the disturbance.. Focus on any one particle (a black dot) of gas to see its to and fro movement in the direction of the flow of the waves energy: in this picture sound wave progresses horizontally to the right.

16
Feb 2008C.M. Bali16 Frequency and Pitch Set up the experiment as in the previous slide (15). Turn on the oscilloscope and the signal generator. Investigate the pitch by listening to the sound from the speaker as the frequency is increased and then decreased. Keep amplitude (peak to peak distance on the oscilloscope) and D constant. Students should see that the higher the frequency the higher the pitch. (You can do this by using tuning forks of various frequencies, but it is difficult to keep the amplitudes constant) S3P-1-27

17
Feb 2008C.M. Bali17 Intensity and loudness of Sound See slide # 10 for experimental set up. Intensity = power per m 2 (W m – 2 ) Power is proportional to the square of the amplitude of the wave. (Follows from SHM) Amplitude of the CRO trace is proportional to the amplitude of the sound wave hitting the microphone. Thus intensity of sound is proportional (not equal) to the square of the amplitude of the CRO trace. [CRO measures voltage] Loudness: S3P-1-27

18
Feb 2008C.M. Bali18 Comparing loudness at different distances Set up the experiment as shown below (also see slide 10). Place microphone 50 cm from the speaker and adjust the volume on the signal generator to get a CRO trace of 1 cm amplitude. Move the microphone by 20 cm at a time towards and away from the speaker. Find the dB level of the sound relative to the reference point. Microphone Speaker 50 cm100cm 0 cm Signal generator Distance = 50 cmA (50) = 1. 0 cmRelative Loudness = 0 dist = 30A (30) =dB = 20 * log {A(50) / A(30)} = dist = 10 cmA(10) = dist = 70A(70)- = dist = 90 cmA(90) = S3P-1-27

Feb 2008C.M. Bali23 Beat Frequency Formula If two sinusoidal disturbances, y1 and y2, of frequencies, f1 and f2, are added, the principle of superposition gives : Not for grade 11students but suitable for grade 12

24
Feb 2008C.M. Bali24 Beat Frequency Formula: A simple approach using relative speed Imagine two athletes, A and B, running to and fro on a straight track, a total distance of 2L. Suppose A takes x seconds and B takes y seconds to complete one to and fro distance on the track. Therefore, x and y are the periods of A and B Frequency of A =1/x, and of B= 1/y Let us assume they will be running for some time! We want to know how often they meet or cross each other. To be more precise, how many times per second they will cross each other; that is, what is their beat frequency? Students should be able to do this proof SP3-1-20

25
Feb 2008C.M. Bali25 Beat Frequency Formula: A simple approach using relative angular speed (in degrees) Imagine two athletes, A and B, running around a circular track. Suppose A takes x seconds and B takes y seconds to go round the track once. Therefore, x and y are the periods of A and B Frequency of A =1/x, and of B= 1/y Let us assume they will be running for some time! We want to know how often they cross each other. To be more precise, how many times per second they will cross each other; that is, what is their beat frequency? You can go through this argument using radians, and will get the same result. Students should be able to do this proof

26
Feb 2008C.M. Bali26 Measurement of Beat frequency Experimental Procedure 1.Set up the experiment as in slide Set Signal 1 to 490 Hz, and Signal 2 to 509 Hz. You should hear beating sound. 3.Set Oscilloscope to: Dual, time base to 20ms/Div, Storage/ analogue switch in, and Y1 and Y2 to an appropriate scale. You should see two traces somewhat out of phase. 4.Now press the Add switch. 5.With the storage / analogue switch in, Press Store All switch. 6.This should freeze the trace. 7.Measure Beat period. 8.Calculate Beat frequency.

28
Feb 2008C.M. Bali28 Sound as Progressive wave A simple argument for students Progressive waves carry energy from one point to another. As the wave particle oscillates once, the wave moves forward by one wavelength. If the particles oscillates f times per second, the wave will move forward f wavelengths. Thus:

31
Feb 2008C.M. Bali31 Measurement of speed of sound Using progressive waves 1.Set up the experiment as shown on the previous slide 2.We know from basic experiments that speed of sound is about 340 m / s. 3.We want to measure a wavelength of say 20 cm. This informs us that the frequency should be around 340 / 0.20 = 1700 Hz. 4.We will use the frequency of sound at 1.5 KHz to 3.0 kHz. Sig.

37
Feb 2008C.M. Bali37 Uncertainties A measurement can never be perfect. The minimum error in a measurement is equal to the instrumental error. If the variation in the measurement is much bigger than the instrumental error, then ignore the instrumental error, but use the deviation or standard deviation from the mean as a measure of uncertainty in the mean.

43
Feb 2008C.M. Bali43 Speed of sound using Stationary Waves 1.Set up the experiment as in the previous slide (slide 42) 2.Move the screen until the microphone signal is very small (see slide 45 for analogy). 3.Now keep the screen still, and move the microphone gently. 4.Measure the distance between two nodal points: this is equal to the distance moved by the microphone between two successive points where the CRO signal is very small, while the reflector is kept at the same position. This distance is equal to half the wavelength. Thus, the wavelength is twice this distance. 5.Find speed of sound by multiplying the wavelength by the frequency, which can be seen on the signal generator. 6.Find uncertainty in the speed. 7.Find error in the speed.

Feb 2008C.M. Bali44 Natural Frequencies and Resonance All objects have certain natural frequencies of oscillations. For example, a swing can oscillate back and forth at a certain frequency that depends on its dimensions. If you push this swing gently but periodically, such that the frequency of your push is exactly the same as the natural frequency of the swing, then energy can flow from the your body into the swing. The energy in the swing can build up to the extent that the swing may become very unstable (very high amplitude of vibration) and even break !! Three dimensional objects have many natural frequencies of vibrations. Show: Tacoma Narrows Bridge Falls bridge-p1.php The phenomenon in which energy can pass easily from one object (A) into an other (B) if it is fed at the natural frequency of the other (B) object is called resonance.

46
Feb 2008C.M. Bali46 Harmonics and Overtones See Previous Slide 45 for experimental set up. 1.Look at the frequency on the signal generator as you set up stationary waves on the string. 2.The frequency is lowest when first harmonic is set up. This frequency is called the fundamental frequency. 3.As the number of harmonics increases, frequency increases. (note: the nth harmonic has n half waves.) 4.OVERTONES: When an instrument (e.g. a taut wire as in the experiment) is plucked, it produces a sound which is a combination of many harmonics. 5.Overtones can be displayed on the CRO and analyzed and shown to be composed of harmonics of that taut wire. 6.The first overtone is the first harmonic, the second overtone is the second harmonics, and so on. S3P-1-27

47
Feb 2008C.M. Bali47 Quality or Timbre of Sound When an instrument is played it does not produce a note of just one frequency. It consists of the fundamental frequency and higher harmonics with different amplitudes. The resultant wave is the superposed sum of various harmonics. Thus the resultant wave is different from that of the fundamental frequency. The ear responds to the fundamental frequency, but it also senses the presence of higher harmonics. This sensation due to the presence of many harmonics is called the quality of sound. Thus different instruments, and even the same instrument, generate sounds of different quality, even though they may be playing the same fundamental frequency. Play a tune from slide 4 and observe the trace on the CRO

48
Feb 2008C.M. Bali48 Analysis of Quality or Timbre of Sound With a graphing calculator Use TI83 or the link below for a graphing calculator: Without Fourier analyzing, we can see that a periodic non-sinusoidal function is the sum of many sinusoidal functions. Graphing Calculator: Set window to : x min (-5), x max (5), y min (-2), y max (2); Xscl and Yscl =0.1 Mode Radians. Example: draw a graph of: Y = 1sin (x) sin (2x) + 0 sin (3x) sin (4x) : You should see that Y is periodic but non-sinusoidal, the period being different from the periods of the component harmonics, (also draw individual graphs) Thus quality is due the presence of many harmonics.

49
Feb 2008C.M. Bali49 Experiment The speed of a wave on a string Set up the experiment as in slide 45. Record resonant frequency for the first, second and third harmonic. Enter the observations in the table below. Find average speed. Different students can try same material of different thicknesses and tensions. Precautions: Keep tension constant. Check L has not changed. Length of string, L / m N = Number of loops, or harmonics wavelength = 2L/(N) / m Freq, f / Hz (from Sig. Gen) v = freq * wavelength (m / s)

50
Feb 2008C.M. Bali50 An Experiment for IB or AP Students Problem: The speed of a wave on a string is thought to depend on the tension in the string. Investigate the relationship between speed and tension. Idea: Let us suppose that the speed depends on the tension. We dont know how it depends. [Theory must always precede experiment, even if we dont realize it.] So assume – requires some thought!

Feb 2008C.M. Bali52 Experimental details Set up the experiment as shown in slide 45. Conduct the experiment in second harmonic. Keep the length of the string constant. Apply different weights to vary the tension. For each weight, note f on signal generator. The wavelength is L. Therefore the speed of the wave is f * L. Record the observations in the table below:

Feb 2008C.M. Bali55 Discussion Conclusion At a more simple level, students can plot Velocity versus Sqrt of T. A straight line of slope 1will uphold the relationship between velocity and tension.

57
Feb 2008C.M. Bali57 Experimental details Set up the experiment as in slide 45. You should use wires of the same material but different thicknesses. Use the same length of wire, keep tension the same.
