Resonance Resonance When we apply a periodically varying force to a system that can oscillate, the system is forced to oscillate with a frequency equal to the frequency of the applied force (driving frequency): forced oscillation. When the applied frequency is close to a characteristic frequency of the system, a phenomenon called resonance occurs. Resonance also occurs when a periodically varying force is applied to a system with normal modes. When the frequency of the applied force is close to one of normal modes of the system, resonance occurs.
Interference of waves Two sound waves interfere each other constructive destructive d1 d2
Beats Two interfering sound waves can make beat Two waves with different frequency create a beat because of interference between them. The beat frequency is the difference of the two frequencies.
Beats (cont’d) Two interfering sound waves can make beat (cont’d) Suppose the two waves have frequenciesand For simplicity, consider two sinusoidal waves of equal intensity: Then the resulting combined wave will be: As human ears does not distinguish negative and positive amplitude, they hear two max. or min. intensity per cycle, so 2 x (1/2)|f a -f b |= |f a -f b | is the beat frequency f beat.
Doppler effect Moving listener Source at rest Listener moving right Source at rest Listener moving left
Doppler effect (cont’d) Moving listener (cont’d) The wavelength of the sound wave does not change whether the listener is moving or not. The time that two subsequent wave crests pass the listener changes when the listener is moving, which effectively changes the velocity of sound. freq. listener hears freq. source generates velocity of sound at source velocity of listener - for a listener moving away from + for a listener moving towards the source.
Doppler effect (cont’d) Moving source When the source moves
Doppler effect (cont’d) Moving source (cont’d) The wave velocity relative to the wave medium does not change even when the source is moving. The wavelength, however, changes when the source is moving. This is because, when the source generates the next crest, the the distance between the previous and next crest i.e. the wave- length changed by the speed of the source. The source at rest When the source is moving + for a receding source - for a approaching source
Doppler effect (cont’d) Moving source and listener + for a receding source - for a approaching source - for a listener moving away from + for a listener moving towards the source. Effect of change of source speed The signs of v L and v S are measured in the direction from the listener L to the source S.

Exercises Problem 2 (cont’d) Solution (b) The wave moves in the +x direction with speed v, so in the experession for y(x,0) replace x with –vt: (c) Thus the instantaneous power is zero except for –L < (x-vt) < L where It has the constant value Fv(h/L) 2.
Exercises Problem 3 The sound from a trumpet radiates uniformly in all directions in air. At a distance of 5.00 m from the trumpet the sound intensity level is 52.0 dB. At what distance is the sound intensity level 30.0 dB? Solution The distance is proportional to the reciprocal of the square root of the intensity and hence to 10 raised to half of the sound intensity levels divided by 10:
Exercises Problem 4 Solution An organ pipe has two successive harmonics with frequencies 1,372 and 1,764 Hz. (a) Is this an open or stopped pipe? (b) What two harmonics are these? (c) What is the length of the pipe? (a)For an open pipe, the difference between successive frequencies is the fundamental, in this case 392 Hz, and all frequencies are integer multiples of this frequency. If this is not the case, the pipe cannot be an open pipe. For a stopped pipe, the difference between the successive frequencies is twice the fundamental, and each frequency is an odd integer multiple of the fundamental. In this case, f 1 = 196 Hz, and 1372 Hz = 7f 1, 1764 Hz = 9f 1. So this is a stopped pipe. (b) n=7 for 1,372 Hz, n=9 for 1,764 Hz. (c) so

Adding x to both sides, squaring, canceling the x 2 term from both sides and solving for x gives: Using and h from the given data yields: (b) Repeating the above argument for integral values for, constructive interference occurs at 4.34 m, 1.84 m, 0.86 m, 0.26 m. (c) If, there will be destructive interference at speaker B. If, the path difference can never be as large as. The minimum frequency is then v/(2h)=(344 m/s)/(4.0 m)=86 Hz.
Exercises Problem 6 Solution A 2.00 MHz sound wave travels through a pregnant woman’s abdomen and is reflected from fetal heart wall of her unborn baby. The heart wall is moving toward the sound receiver as the heart beats. The reflected sound is then mixed with the transmitted sound, and 5 beats per second are detected. The speed of sound in body tissue is 1,500 m/s. Calculate the speed of the fetal heart wall at the instance this measurement is made. Let f 0 =2.00 MHz be the frequency of the generated wave. The frequency with which the heart wall receives this wave is f H =[(v+v H )/v]f 0, and this is also the frequency with which the heart wall re-emits the wave. The detected frequency of this reflected wave is f’=[v/(v-v H )]f H, with the minus sign indicating that the heart wall, acting now as a source of waves, is moving toward the receiver. Now combining f’=[(v+v H )/(v-v H )]f 0, and the beat frequency is: Solving for v H,
