Transcript of PH 223 21.4-5

sound waves
1D interference

Harmonics vs overtones
Harmonics = n (number of nodes or antinodes)

Overtones = notes you hear, standing waves
O - O and C - C behave the same
O - C different

harmonics overtones harmonics
A violin string is 30 cm long. It sounds a 440 Hz when played with no fingers. how far from the end of the string should you place your finger to play a 523 Hz note?
Say this violin was placed over a tube that is open only at one end. If the 523 Hz note resonates with the 2 overtone of the tube, how long is this tube?
If they are in phase, what is the smallest distance between the speakers for destructive.
If they are out of phase, what is smallest distance between for constructive interference
Two speakers in a 20 degree room emit 686 Hz sound waves on the x axis
What is the wavelength of the sound
If the distance between them increase, when is the next maximum intensity separation distance.
Two speakers emit sound on x axis. Maximum intensity happens when they are 20 cm apart, and decrease to to nothing when 60 cm apart.
"How to do #6 on the pre-quiz. " For two speakers on a one dimensional line as in many figures shown in the text, both producing a 440 Hz sound at 20 degrees, what is the first distance they can be separated and create completely constructive interference?
"Is an echo a standing wave? "
"Why do certain noises sound good to us? Like cords on a piano or guitar."
"Why is the velocity of the sound wave in the air from a vibrating string a different velocity than the wave in the string?"
"Singing in the shower "
