impact loud speaker upon particle distribution in the air

sound amplitude depends on variation of sound pressure modulation of atmospheric pressure = 100.000 Pascal

p eff = (½ √2) p max hearing threshold = 0.00002 Pa SPL (dB) = 20×log (p/ p ref )

reference 2.10 -5 Pa p ref, 0 dB SPL SPL = 20×log (p/p ref )

when you double sound pressure, sound intensity increases with ?

when you double sound pressure, sound intensity increases with 6 dB 20 log p 1 /p 2 = 20 log 2 = 20×0.3 = 6

Question When two students talk non-synchroneously with a sound intensity of 60 dB SPL each, what do they produce together ?

Answer When two students talk non-synchroneously with a sound intensity of 60 dB SPL each, they produce together 2 times more energy = 63 dB total when you double sound pressure, sound intensity increases with 6 dB 20 log p 1 /p 2 = 20 log 2 = 20×0.3 = 6 but energy increases with 3 dB 10 log e 1 /e 2 = 10 log 2 = 10×0.3 = 3

Question When two students talk synchroneously with a sound intensity of 60 dB SPL each, what do they produce together ?

Answer When two students talk synchroneously with a sound intensity of 60 dB SPL each, they produce together 66 dB total

Question What is the total sound intensity in a room with - A radio 70 dB SPL -Two students speaking asynchronous, each 60 dBSPL - one plane flying over with 80 dB SPL perceived in the room

Question What is the total sound intensity in a room with -A radio 70 dB SPL -Two students speaking asynchronous, each 60 dBSPL - one plane with 80 dB SPL First transfer into energies, then sum and transfer in dB again. Result = 80.1 dB

sound intensity decreases with r²

resonance and impedance

auditory canal = open pipe (1, 3, 5 enz.) x ¼ 27 mm = ¼

(1, 3, 5 enz.) x ¼ 27 mm = ¼ = 108 mm f = 3100 Hz gehoorgang = open orgelpijp resonantiegebied = 2000- 5000 Hz

transition air - liquid acoustic impedance Z = p / u (in Rayleigh like Ohm) p: pressure needed u: velocity impedance endolympfe 56000 impedance air = 410 factor 135: 97% reflection: therefore ossicles resonance including ossicular chain: 1000 Hz

impedance 1.resistence: frequency independent transfer sound energy in heat 2.stifness= elasticity that decreases with frequency 3.inertia increases with frequency compliance (in ml) = 1 / impedance

- increasing sensitivity by micro-mechanics by the outer hair cells: the cochlear amplifier

- deflecion towards kinociulim decreases receptor potential results in: mechanical deformation of the cortical lattice leading to a shortening in cell body length and increase in diameter moving the basilary membrane further away from the kinocilium
