1539 Chapter 15 Traveling Waves Conceptual Problems 1 ? [SSM] A rope hangs vertically from the ceiling. A pulse is sent up the rope. Does the pulse travel faster, slower, or at a constant speed as it moves toward the ceiling? Explain your answer. Determine the Concept The speed of a transverse wave on a rope is given by ? T Fv = where F T is the tension in the rope and ? is its linear density. The waves on the rope move faster as they move toward the ceiling because the tension increases due to the weight of the rope below the pulse. 2 ? A pulse on a horizontal taut string travels to the right. If the rope?s mass per unit length decreases to the right, what happens to the speed of the pulse as it travels to the right? (a) It slows down. (b) It speeds up. (c) Its speed is constant. (d) You cannot tell from the information given. Determine the Concept The speed v of a pulse on the string varies with the tension F T in the string and its mass per unit length ? according to ? T Fv = . Because the rope?s mass per unit length decreases to the right, the speed of the pulse increases. ()b is correct. 3 ? As a sinusoidal wave travels past a point on a taut string, the arrival time between successive crests is measured to be 0.20 s. Which of the following is true? (a) The wavelength of the wave is 5.0 m. (b) The frequency of the wave is 5.0 Hz. (c) The velocity of propagation of the wave is 5.0 m/s. (d) The wavelength of the wave is 0.20 m. (e) There is not enough information to justify any of these statements. Determine the Concept The distance between successive crests is one wavelength and the time between successive crests is the period of the wave motion. Thus, T = 0.20 s and f = 1/T = 5.0 Hz. )(b is correct. 4 ? Two harmonic waves on identical strings differ only in amplitude. Wave A has an amplitude that is twice that of wave B?s. How do the energies of these waves compare? (a) E A = E B . (b) E A = 2E B . (c) E A = 4E B . (d) There is not enough information to compare their energies. Picture the Problem The average energy transmitted by a wave on a string is proportional to the square of its amplitude and is given by ( ) xAE ?? 22 2 1 av ??= where A is the amplitude of the wave, ? is the linear density (mass per unit length) Chapter 15 1540 of the string, ? is the angular frequency of the wave, and ?x is the length of the string. Because the waves on the strings differ only in amplitude, the energy of the wave on string A is given by: 2 AA cAE = Express the energy of the wave on string B: 2 BB cAE = Divide the first of these equations by the second and simplify to obtain: 2 B A 2 B 2 A B A ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? == A A cA cA E E Because A A = 2A B : 4 2 2 B B B A = ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? = A A E E ? BA 4EE = ( )c is correct. 5 ? [SSM] To keep all of the lengths of the treble strings (unwrapped steel wires) in a piano all about the same order of magnitude, wires of different linear mass densities are employed. Explain how this allows a piano manufacturer to use wires with lengths that are the same order of magnitude. Determine the Concept The resonant (standing wave) frequencies on a string are inversely proportional to the square root of the linear density of the string ( )?? T Tf = . Thus extremely high frequencies (which might otherwise require very long strings) can be accommodated on relatively short strings if the strings are linearly denser that the high frequency strings. High frequencies are not a problem as they utilize short strings anyway. 6 ? Musical instruments produce sounds of widely varying frequencies. Which sounds waves have the longer wavelengths? (a) The lower frequencies. (b) The higher frequencies. (c) All frequencies have the same wavelength. (d) There is not enough information to compare the wavelengths of the different frequency sounds. Determine the Concept Once the sound has been produced by a vibrating string, membrane, or air column, the speed with which it propagates is the product of its frequency and wavelength ().?fv = For a given medium and temperature, v is constant. Hence the wavelength and frequency for a given sound are inversely proportional and ()a is correct. Traveling Waves 1541 7 ? In Problem 7, which sound waves have the higher speeds? (a) The lower frequency sounds. (b) The higher frequency sounds. (c) All frequencies have the same wave speed. (d) There is not enough information to compare their speeds. Determine the Concept Once the sound has been produced by a vibrating string, membrane, or air column, the wave speed with which it propagates depends on the properties of the medium in which it is propagating and is independent of the frequency and wavelength of the sound. ( )c is correct. 8 ? Sound travels at 343 m/s in air and 1500 m/s in water. A sound of 256 Hz is made under water, but you hear the sound while walking along the side of the pool. In the air, the frequency is (a) the same, but the wavelength of the sound is shorter, (b) higher, but the wavelength of the sound stays the same, (c) lower, but the wavelength of the sound is longer, (d) lower, and the wavelength of the sound is shorter, (e) the same, and the wavelength of the sound stays the same. Determine the Concept In any medium, the wavelength, frequency, and speed of a sound wave are related through ? = v/f. Because the frequency of a wave is determined by its source and is independent of the nature of the medium, if v is greater in water than in air, ? will be greater in water than in air. )(a is correct. 9 ? While out on patrol, the battleship Rodger Young hits a mine, begins to burn, and ultimately explodes. Sailor Abel jumps into the water and begins swimming away from the doomed ship, while Sailor Baker gets into a life raft. Comparing their experiences later, Abel tells Baker, ?I was swimming underwater, and heard a big explosion from the ship. When I surfaced, I heard a second explosion. What do you think it could be?? Baker says, ?I think it was your imagination?I only heard one explosion. ? Explain why Baker only heard one explosion, while Abel heard two. Determine the Concept There was only one explosion. Sound travels faster in water than air. Abel heard the sound wave in the water first, then, surfacing, heard the sound wave traveling through the air, which took longer to reach him. 10 ? True or false: A 60-dB sound has twice the intensity of a 30-dB sound. Picture the Problem The intensity level ?, measured in decibels, is given by ()() 0 logdB10 II=? where I 0 = 10 ?12 W/m 2 is defined to be the threshold of hearing. Chapter 15 1542 Express the intensity of the 60-dB sound: () 0 60 logdB10dB60 I I = ? 0 6 60 10 II = Express the intensity of the 30-dB sound: () 0 30 logdB10dB30 I I = ? 0 3 30 10 II = Because I 60 = 10 3 I 30 , the statement is false. 11 ? [SSM] At a given location, two harmonic sound waves have the same amplitude, but the frequency of sound A is twice the frequency of sound B. How do their average energy densities compare? (a) The average energy density of A is twice the average energy density of B. (b) The average energy density of A is four times the average energy density of B. (c) The average energy density of A is 16 times the average energy density of B. (d) You cannot compare the average energy densities from the data given. Determine the Concept The average energy density of a sound wave is given by 2 0 2 2 1 av s??? = where ? is the average density of the medium, s 0 is the displacement amplitude of the molecules making up the medium, and ? is the angular frequency of the sound waves. Express the average energy density of sound A: 2 A,0 2 AA2 1 A av, s??? = The average energy density of sound B is given by: 2 B,0 2 BB2 1 B av, s??? = Dividing the first of these equation by the second yields: 2 B,0 2 BB2 1 2 A,0 2 AA2 1 B av, A av, s s ?? ?? ? ? = Because the sound waves are identical except for their frequencies: 2 B A 2 B A 2 B 2 A B av, A av, 2 2 ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? = ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? == f f f f ? ? ? ? ? ?

At a given location, two harmonic sound waves have the same frequency but the amplitude of sound A is twice the amplitude of sound B. How do their average energy densities compare? (a) The average energy density of A is Traveling Waves 1543 twice the average energy density of B. (b) The average energy density of A is four times the average energy density of B (c) The average energy density of A is 16 times the average energy density of B (d) You cannot compare the average energy densities from the data given. Determine the Concept The average energy density of a sound wave is given by 2 0 2 2 1 av s??? = where ? is the average density of the medium, s 0 is the displacement amplitude of the molecules making up the medium, and ? is the angular frequency of the sound waves. Express the average energy density of sound A: 2 A,0 2 AA2 1 A av, s??? = The average energy density of sound B is given by: 2 B,0 2 BB2 1 B av, s??? = Dividing the first of these equation by the second yields: 2 B,0 2 BB2 1 2 A,0 2 AA2 1 B av, A av, s s ?? ?? ? ? = Because the sound waves are identical except for their displacement amplitudes: 2 B,0 A,0 2 B,0 2 A,0 B av, A av, ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? == s s s s ? ?

What is the ratio of the intensity of normal conversation to the sound intensity of a soft whisper (at a distance of 5.0 m)? (a) 10 3 , (b) 2, (c) 10 ?3 , (d) 1/2. Hint: See Table 15-1. Determine the Concept The problem is asking us for the ratio of the intensities corresponding to normal conversation and a soft whisper. Table 15-1 includes the quantities we need in order to find this ratio. Use Table 15-1 to find the ratio of I/I 0 , where I 0 is the threshold of hearing, for normal conversation: 6 onconversati normal 0 10= ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

What is the ratio of the intensity level of normal conversation to the sound intensity level of a soft whisper (at a distance of 5.0 m)? (a) 10 3 , (b) 2, (c) 10 ?3 , (d) 1/2. Hint: See Table 15-1. Determine the Concept The problem is asking us for the ratio of the sound intensity levels (decibel levels) corresponding to normal conversation and a soft whisper. Table 15-1 includes the quantities we need in order to find this ratio. From Table 15-1, the sound intensity level corresponding to normal conversation is: dB 60 onconversati normal =? From Table 15-1, the sound intensity level corresponding to a soft whisper is: dB 30 whisper soft =? Dividing the first of these equation by the second yields: 2 dB 30 dB 60 whisper soft onconversati normal == ? ? ( )b is correct. 15 ? To increase the sound intensity level by 20 dB requires the sound intensity to increase by what factor? (a) 10, (b) 100, (c) 1000, (d) 2. Determine the Concept The sound intensity level is given by () ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? = 0 log dB 10 I I ? where I is the intensity of a given sound and I 0 is the intensity of the threshold of hearing. The sound intensity level for a sound whose intensity is I 1 is given by: () ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? = 0 1 1 log dB 10 I I ? Traveling Waves 1545 The sound intensity level for a sound whose intensity is I 2 is given by: () ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? = 0 2 2 log dB 10 I I ? Subtract the second equation from the first and simplify to obtain: () ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? =? 2 1 21 log dB 10 I I ?? Solving for I 1 /I 2 yields: dB 10 2 1 21 10 ?? ? = I I For a 20-dB increase in the sound intensity level: 2 dB 10 dB 20 2 1 1010 == I I ? ( )b is correct. 16 ? You are using a hand-held sound level meter to measure the intensity level of the roars produced by a lion prowling in the high grass. To decrease the measured sound intensity level by 20 dB requires the lion move away from you until its distance from you has increased by what factor? (a) 10, (b) 100, (c) 1000, (d) You cannot tell the required distance from the data given. Determine the Concept The sound intensity level is given by () ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? = 0 log dB 10 I I ? where I is the intensity of a given sound and I 0 is the intensity of the threshold of hearing. The intensity of the a given sound varies with distance from its source according to 2 av 4 r P I ? = . The sound intensity level for a sound whose intensity is I 1 is given by: () ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? = 0 1 1 log dB 10 I I ? The sound intensity level for a sound whose intensity is I 2 is given by: () ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? = 0 2 2 log dB 10 I I ?

Solving for I 1 /I 2 yields: dB 10 2 1 21 10 ?? ? = I I Chapter 15 1546 Letting r 1 be the lion?s initial distance from you and r 2 be the lion?s final distance from you, substitute for I 1 and I 2 and simplify to obtain: dB 10 2 1 2 2 2 2 av 2 1 av 21 10 4 4 ?? ? ? ? == r r r P r P ? dB 10 1 2 21 10 ?? ? = r r For a 20-dB decrease in the sound intensity level: 1010 dB 10 dB 20 1 2 == r r ? ( )b is correct. 17 ? One end of a very light (but strong) thread is attached to an end of a thicker and denser cord. The other end of the thread is fastened to a sturdy post and you pull the other end of the cord so the thread and cord are taut. A pulse is sent down the thicker, denser cord. True or false: (a) The pulse that is reflected back from the thread-cord attachment point is inverted compared to the initial incoming pulse. (b) The pulse that continues past the thread-cord attachment point is not inverted compared to the initial incoming pulse. (c) The pulse that continues past the thread-cord attachment point has an amplitude that is smaller than the pulse that is reflected. (a) False. Because the reflection medium (cord) in which the pulse travels initially has a greater linear density than the transmission medium (thread), there is no phase shift in the reflected pulse. (b) True. Because the thread-cord attachment point of the media is more like a loose end than a fixed end, the pulse transmitted into the light thread is in phase with the incoming pulse in the thicker, denser cord. (c) True. Because the string is attached to a thicker, denser cord, the reflected pulse behaves almost as though it was reflected from a fixed end and is, therefore, inverted. The pulse in the light thread is in phase with the incoming pulse in the thicker, denser cord. Because energy is conserved and there is some energy transmitted and some reflected, the transmitted wave cannot have an amplitude as large as the amplitude of the pulse in the thicker, denser cord. 18 ? Light traveling in air strikes a glass surface at an incident angle of 45°. True or false: (a) The angle between the reflected light ray and the incident ray is 90°. (b) The angle between the reflected light ray and the refracted light ray is less than 90°. Determine the Concept The ray diagram shows the relationship between the incident, reflected, and refracted rays. Traveling Waves 1547 air glass °45 ? 1 rayIncident ray Reflected ray Refracted glassair vv > (a) True. Because the angle of incidence is equal to the angle of reflection, the sum of these angles in this example is 90°. Note: this is a special case and is not generally true. (b) False. Because light travels slower in glass than in air, the refracted ray makes an angle of less than 45° with the normal. Hence the angle it makes with the reflected ray is greater than 90°. 19 ? [SSM] Sound waves in air encounter a 1.0-m wide door into a classroom. Due to the effects of refraction, the sound of which frequency is least likely to be heard by all the students in the room, assuming the room is full? (a) 600 Hz, (b) 300 Hz, (c) 100 Hz, (d) All the sounds are equally likely to be heard in the room. (e) Diffraction depends on wavelength not frequency, so you cannot tell from the data given. Determine the Concept If the wavelength is large relative to the door, the diffraction effects are large and the waves spread out as they pass through the door. Because we?re interested in sounds that are least likely to be heard everywhere in the room, we want the wavelength to be short and the frequency to be high. Hence ()a is correct. 20 ? Microwave radiation in modern microwave ovens has a wavelength on the order of centimeters. Would you expect significant diffraction if this radiation was aimed at a 1.0-m wide door? Explain. Determine the Concept No. Because the wavelength of the radiation is small relative to the door, the diffraction effects are small and the waves do not spread out significantly as they pass through the door. 21 ?? [SSM] Stars often occur in pairs revolving around their common center of mass. If one of the stars is a black hole, it is invisible. Explain how the Chapter 15 1548 existence of such a black hole might be inferred by measuring the Doppler frequency shift of the light observed from the other, visible star. Determine the Concept The light from the visible star will be shifted about its mean frequency periodically due to the relative approach toward and recession away from Earth as the star revolves around the common center of mass. 22 ?? Figure 15-30 shows a wave pulse at time t = 0 moving to the right. (a) At this particular time, which segments of the string are moving up? (b) Which segments are moving down? (c) Is there any segment of the string at the pulse that is instantaneously at rest? Answer these questions by sketching the pulse at a slightly later time and a slightly earlier time to see how the segments of the string are moving. Determine the Concept The graph shown below shows the pulse at an earlier time (t < 0) and later time (t > 0). (a) One can see that at t = 0, the portion of the string between 1 cm and 2 cm is moving down, (b) the portion between 2 cm and 3 cm is moving up, and (c) the string at x = 2 cm is instantaneously at rest. 012345678910 x , cm y t = 0 t > 0 t < 0 23 ?? Make a sketch of the velocity of each string segment versus position for the pulse shown in Figure 15-30. Determine the Concept The velocity of the string at t = 0 is shown. Note that the velocity is negative for 1 cm < x < 2 cm and is positive for 2 cm < x < 3 cm. Traveling Waves 1549 012345678910 x , cm v y 24 ?? An object of mass m hangs on a very light rope that is connected to the ceiling. You pluck the rope just above the object, and a wave pulse travels up to the ceiling and back. Compare the round-trip time for such a wave pulse to the round-trip time of a wave pulse on the same rope if an object of mass 9m is hung on the rope instead. (Assume the rope does not stretch, that is, the mass-to-ceiling distance is the same in each case.) Determine the Concept If the mass providing the tension in the rope is increased by a factor of n, then the tension in the rope increases by the same factor and the speed of the pulse on the rope increases by a factor of n and the round trip time for the pulse is decreased by a factor of n1. Let null represent the distance the pulse travels. Then the time for the round trip is given by: v t null = (1) Express the speed of the wave when the object of mass m provides the tension in the rope: ? m m F v T, = Express the speed of the wave when the object of mass 9m provides the tension in the rope: ? m m F v T,9 9 = Substituting for m v 9 in equation (1) yields: m m m F F t T,9 T,9 9 ? ? null null == (2) Similarly, the travel time when the object whose mass is m is providing the tension is given by: m m m F F t T, T, ? ? null null == (3) Chapter 15 1550 Divide equation (2) by equation (3) and simplify to obtain: m m m m F F t t T,9 T, 9 = Because mm FF T,T,9 9= : 3 1 T, T, 9 9 == m m m m F F t t ? mm tt 3 1 9 = 25 ?? The explosion of a depth charge beneath the surface of the water is recorded by a helicopter hovering above its surface, as shown in Figure 15-31. Along which path, A, B, or C, will the sound wave take the least time to reach the helicopter? Explain why you chose the path you did. Determine the Concept Path C. Because the wave speed is highest in the water, and more of path C is underwater than A or B, the sound wave will spend the least time on path C. 26 ?? Does a speed of Mach 2 at an altitude of 60,000 feet mean the same as a speed of Mach 2 near ground level? Explain clearly. Determine the Concept No. The term Mach 2 means that the speed is twice the speed of sound at a given altitude. Because the speed of sound is lower at high altitudes than at ground level (due to lower density and colder temperature), Mach 2 means less than twice the speed of sound at sea level. Estimation and Approximation 27 ?? Many years ago, Olympic 100 m dashes were started by the sound from a starter?s pistol, with the starter positioned several meters down the track, just on the inside of the track. (Today, the pistol that is used is often only a trigger, which is used to electronically activate speakers behind each sprinter?s starting blocks. This method avoids the problem of one runner hearing sound before the other runners.) Estimate the time advantage the inside lane (relative to the runner at the outside lane of 8 runners) would have if all runners started when they heard the sound from the starter?s pistol. Picture the Problem Due to the differences in the distances from the starter to the inside- and outside-lane sprinters, the sound of the starting pistol took more time to reach the outside-lane sprinter than it did to reach the inside-lane sprinter. Express the difference in time for the two sprinters in terms of the distances the sound must travel and the speed of sound: vv ttt lane insidelane outside lane insidelane ouside ? nullnull ?= ?= Traveling Waves 1551 Assuming that the separation of the inside- and outside-lane sprinters is w: 22 lane insidelane outside w+= nullnull Substitute for lane outside null to obtain: v w t lane inside 22 lane inside ? nullnull ?+ = Assuming that the separation of the inside- and outside-lane sprinters is 7.0 m and that the starter is 5.0 m from the inside-lane sprinter yields: ()() ms 11 m/s 343 m 0.5m 0.7m 0.5 ? 22 = ?+ =t Remarks: Because a 100-m sprint is often decided by one or two hundredths of a second, this difference could be significant. This difference led to the invention of the electronic starter?s sound. 28 ?? Estimate the speed of the bullet as it passes through the helium balloon in Figure 15-32. Hint: A protractor would be beneficial. Picture the Problem You can use a protractor to measure the angle of the shock cone and then estimate the speed of the bullet using .sin uv=? The speed of sound in helium at room temperature (293 K) is 977 m/s. Relate the speed of the bullet u to the speed of sound v in helium and the angle of the shock cone ? : u v =?sin ? ?sin v u = Measuring ? yields: °? 70? Substitute numerical values and evaluate u: km/s0.1 70sin m/s977 = ° =u 29 ?? The new student townhouses at a local college are in the form of a semicircle half-enclosing the track field. To estimate the speed of sound in air, an ambitious physics student stood at the center of the semicircle and clapped his hands rhythmically at a frequency at which he couldn?t hear the echo of the clap, because it reached him at the same time as his next clap. This frequency was about 2.5 claps/s. Once he established this frequency, he paced off the distance to the townhouses, which was 30 double strides. Assuming that the length of each stride is equal to half his height (5 ft 11 in), estimate the speed of sound in air using this data. How far off is this from the commonly accepted value of 343 m/s? Chapter 15 1552 Picture the Problem Let d be the distance to the townhouses. We can relate the speed of sound to the distance to the townhouses to the frequency of the clapping for which no echo is heard. 5 ft 11 in is equal to 1.8 m. Relate the speed of sound to the distance it travels to the townhouses and back to the elapsed time: t d v ? = 2 Express d in terms of the number of strides and distance covered per stride: ( )( ) m54m/stride8.1strides30 ==d Relate the elapsed time ?t to the frequency f of the clapping: s40.0 claps/s5.2 11 ? === f t Substitute numerical values and evaluate v: ( ) km/s27.0m/s 270 s40.0 m542 ===v The percent difference between this result and 343 m/s is: %21 m/s343 m/s270m/s343 diff % = ? = Speed of Waves 30 ?

Picture the Problem The speed of sound in a gas is given by MRTv ?= where R is the gas constant, T is the absolute temperature, M is the molecular mass of the gas, and ? is a constant that is characteristic of the particular molecular structure of the gas. Because hydrogen gas is diatomic, ? = 1.4.

A 7.00-m-long guitar string has a mass of 100 g and is under a tension of 900 N. What is the speed of a transverse wave pulse on this string? Picture the Problem The speed of a transverse wave pulse on a string is given by ? T Fv = where F T is the tension in the string, m is its mass, L is its length, and ? is its mass per unit length. Express the dependence of the speed of the pulse on the tension in the string: ? T F v = where ? is the mass per unit length of the string.

(b) A wave moves with a speed of 300 m/s on a string that is under a tension of 500 N. Using to the differential approximation, estimate how much the tension must be changed to increase the speed to 312 m/s. (c) Calculate ?F T exactly and compare it to the differential approximation result in Part (b). Assume that the string does not stretch with the increase in tension. Chapter 15 1554 Picture the Problem (a) The speed of a transverse wave on a string is given by ? T Fv = where T F is the tension in the wire and ? is its linear density. We can differentiate this expression with respect to F T and then separate the variables to show that the differentials satisfy .

From the conservation of energy we have: trin PPP =+ (1) From Equation 15-20, the power transmitted in the direction of increasing x is given by: x y x y FP ? ? ? ? ?= T Substituting in equation (1) yields: ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?=? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?+? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? x y x y F x y x y F x y x y F tt T rr T inin T or, upon simplification, x y x y x y x y x y x y ? ? ? ? = ? ? ? ? + ? ? ? ? ttrrinin (2) Chapter 15 1588 Because the incident pulse is given by ()tvxfy 1in ?= , the reflected and transmitted pulses are given by: ( )tvxrfy 1r ??= and [] ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?= tvx v v fy 2 2 1 t ?

A sound source is moving at 80 m/s toward a stationary listener that is standing in still air. (a) Find the wavelength of the sound in the region between the source and the listener. (b) Find the frequency heard by the listener. Picture the Problem We can use Equation 15-38 ( s s f uv± =? ) to find the wavelength of the sound between the source and the listener and Equation15-41a ( s s r r f uv uv f ± ± = ) to find the frequency heard by the listener.

Consider the situation described in Problem 72 from the reference frame of the source. In this frame, the listener and the air are moving toward the source at 80 m/s and the source is at rest. (a) At what speed, relative to the source, is the sound traveling in the region between the source and the listener? (b) Find the wavelength of the sound in the region between the source and the listener. (c) Find the frequency heard by the listener. Picture the Problem (a) In the reference frame of the source, the speed of sound from the source to the listener is reduced by the speed of the air. (b) We can find the wavelength of the sound in the region between the source and the listener from v = f?. (c) Because the sound waves in the region between the source and the listener will be compressed by the motion of the listener, the frequency of the sound heard by the listener will be higher than the frequency emitted by the source and can be calculated using s s r r f uv uv f ± ± = (Equation 15-41a). Chapter 15 1590 (a) The speed of sound in the reference frame of the source is: m/s263 m/s80m/s433 wind = ?=?= uvv' (b) Noting that the frequency is unchanged, express the wavelength of the sound: m32.1 s200 m/s263 1 === ? f v' ?

A sound source is moving away from the stationary listener at 80 m/s. (a) Find the wavelength of the sound waves in the region between the source and the listener. (b) Find the frequency heard by the listener. Picture the Problem We can use ( ) ss fuv±=? ( Equation 15-38) to find the wavelength of the sound in the region between the source and the listener and s s r r f uv uv f ± ± = (Equation 15-41a) to find the frequency heard by the listener. Because the sound waves in the region between the source and the listener will be spread out by the motion of the listener, the frequency of the sound heard by the listener will be lower than the frequency emitted by the source. (a) Because the source is moving away from the listener, use the positive sign in the numerator of Equation 15-38 to find the wavelength of the sound between the source and the listener: m12.2 s200 m/s80m/s343 1 s s s s = + = + = ± = ? f uv f uv ? (b) Because the listener is at rest and the source is receding, u r = 0 and the denominator of Equation 15-41a is the sum of the two speeds: () Hz162 s200 m/s80m/s343 m/s343 0 1 s s s s r r = + = + ± = ± ± = ? f uv v f uv uv f Traveling Waves 1591 75 ? The listener is moving 80 m/s from the stationary source that is in rest relative to the air. Find the frequency heard by the listener. Picture the Problem Because the listener is moving away from the source, we know that the frequency he/she will hear will be less than the frequency emitted by the source. We can use s s r r f uv uv f ± ± = (Equation 15-41a), with u s = 0 and the minus sign in the numerator, to determine its value. Relate the frequency heard by the listener to that of the source: () Hz153 s200 m/s343 m/s80m/s343 0 1 s r s s r r = ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? = ? ? ? ? ? ? ± ? = ± ± = ? f v uv f uv uv f 76 ?? You have made the trek to observe a Space Shuttle landing. Near the end of its descent, the ship is traveling at Mach 2.50 at an altitude of 5000 m. (a) What is the angle that the shock wave makes with the line of flight of the shuttle? (b) How far horizontally are you from the shuttle by the time you hear its shock wave, assuming the shuttle maintains both a constant heading and a constant 5000-m altitude after flying directly over your head? Picture the Problem The diagram shows the position of the shuttle at time t after it was directly over your head (located at point P) Let u represent the speed of the shuttle and v the speed of sound. We can use trigonometry to determine the angle of the shock wave as well as the location of the shuttle x when you hear the shock wave. (a) Referring to the diagram, express ? in terms of v, u, and t: 5.2 11 sin === vuut vt ? Solving for ? yields: °=°= ? ? ? ? ? ? = ? 6.2358.23 50.2 1 sin 1 ?

The SuperKamiokande neutrino detector in Japan is a water tank the size of a 14-story building. When neutrinos collide with electrons in water, most of their energy is transferred to the electrons. As a consequence, the electrons then fly off at speeds that approach c. The neutrino is counted by detecting the shock wave, called Cerenkov radiation, that is produced when the high-speed electrons travel through the water at speeds greater than the speed of light in water. If the maximum angle of the Cerenkov shock-wave cone is 48.75°, what is the speed of light in water? Picture the Problem The angle ? of the Cerenkov shock wave is related to the speed of light in water v and the speed of light in a vacuum c according to .sin cv=? Relate the speed of light in water v to the angle of the Cerenkov cone: c v =?sin ? ?sincv = Substitute numerical values and evaluate v: ( ) m/s10254.2 75.48sinm/s10998.2 8 8 ×= °×=v 78 ?? You are in charge of calibrating the radar guns for a local police department. One such device emits microwaves at a frequency of 2.00 GHz. During the trials, you have it arranged so that these waves are reflected from a car moving directly away from the stationary emitter. In this situation, you detect a frequency difference (between the received microwaves and the ones sent out) of 293 Hz. Find the speed of the car. Picture the Problem Because the car is moving away from the stationary emitter at a speed u r , the frequency f r it receives will be less than the frequency emitted by the emitter. The microwaves reflected from the car, moving away from a stationary detector, will be of a still lower frequency f r ?. We can use the Doppler shift equations to derive an expression for the speed of the car in terms of difference of these frequencies. Express the frequency f r received by the moving car in terms of f s , u r , and c: s r s s r r 0 f c uc f uc uc f ? ? ? ? ? ? ± ? = ± ± = (1) Traveling Waves 1593 Express the frequency f r ? received by the stationary source in terms of f r , u r , and c: r r r s r r 0 f c uc f uc uc 'f ? ? ? ? ? ? ± ? = ± ± = (2) Substitute equation (1) in equation (2) to eliminate f r : . provided 2 1 1 rs r s 2 r s 2 r r cuf c u f c u f c uc 'f <
