Review of lecture 3
Review of Lecture 3

  • We listened to the sound produced by a Simple Harmonic Motion (SHM) and identified two key features that it is missing to be called a “musical” sound:

    • Envelope

    • Complex vibrations

  • By comparing a few examples of musical sounds, we found two common features:

    • Damping

    • Transients

  • Damping is due to dissipation and is described by an exponential decay law.

Physics of Music, Lecture 4, D. Kirkby


  • Transients usually occur at beginning of a sound and are due to explosive initial disturbances that push a sound-producing body beyond its linear response regime.

  • The Principle of Superposition (PoS) allows us to understand the complex vibrations of a linear system as the combined result of many simple vibrations (modes).

  • Reflection is a universal feature of wave motion. Reflected waves may or may not be flipped, depending on the boundary conditions.

Physics of Music, Lecture 4, D. Kirkby


Wave refraction
Wave Refraction to explosive initial disturbances that push a sound-producing body beyond its linear response regime.

  • What if, instead of fixing the end of the rope, we attach another rope of different thickness?

Physics of Music, Lecture 4, D. Kirkby


Limiting cases
Limiting Cases to explosive initial disturbances that push a sound-producing body beyond its linear response regime.

  • A powerful and general approach to understanding a complex physical system is to identify its limiting cases.

  • A limiting case is when some parameter of the system is taken to an extreme value. Limiting cases are often equivalent to simpler systems that are already well understood.

  • With the limiting cases identified and understood, you can now think of the general case in terms of how to fill in the gaps between limiting cases.

Physics of Music, Lecture 4, D. Kirkby


Limiting cases for rope waves
Limiting Cases for Rope Waves to explosive initial disturbances that push a sound-producing body beyond its linear response regime.

  • (1) If the extra rope is heavy enough, this

  • Is essentially the same as fixing the end.

  • (2) If the extra rope is the same as the original rope, the wave passes through the join unaffected.

  • (3) If the extra rope is much lighter thanthe original rope, this is essentially same

  • As leaving the end free (a whip)

  • Try this to explosive initial disturbances that push a sound-producing body beyond its linear response regime.demonstration (or this one) to find out.

  • What did you learn?

If the extra rope is heavier (slower) than the original rope, the reflected pulse is a negative of the original pulse and smaller.

If the extra rope is lighter (faster) than the original rope, the reflected pulse is the same as the original but smaller.

Physics of Music, Lecture 4, D. Kirkby


  • In addition to the reflected wave, we find a transmitted wave.The process of transmitting a wave through an interface where the wave speed changes is called refraction.

  • The refracted wave is always a smaller version of the original pulse (it is never flipped to be a negative pulse).

Physics of Music, Lecture 4, D. Kirkby


Reflection refraction
Reflection & Refraction wave.

  • Reflection and refraction are complementary processes that both occur at the boundary between two different media.

  • The reflection coefficient R measures the amplitude of the reflected wave compared with the incident wave. A negative coefficient indicates a negative reflection.

  • The transmission coefficient T measures the amplitude of the transmitted wave. It is always positive.

  • The incident wave is converted entirely into transmitted and reflected waves: T - R = 1

Physics of Music, Lecture 4, D. Kirkby


R = -1 wave.

T = 0

-1 < R < 0

0 < T < 1

R = 0

T = 1

0 < R < 1

1 < T < 2

R = +1

T = 2

Into the second dimension
Into the Second Dimension wave.

  • Until now, we have only considered one-dimensional wave (even when we looked at two-dimensional representations such as the air particles).

  • How are things different in two dimensions?

  • The main difference is that you can travel in more than one direction.

Physics of Music, Lecture 4, D. Kirkby


Special cases of 2d sources

direction wave.

of travel

Special Cases of 2D Sources

  • Plane waves are really just one-dimensional waves since the disturbances at different places are all in parallel directions:

Plane waves are a mathematical idealization since theyrequire an infinitely long source.

Physics of Music, Lecture 4, D. Kirkby


  • Circular waves wave. (or spherical waves) originate from a point source and spread out in circles (or spheres):

Circular waves look likeplane waves up close(another limiting case)

Physics of Music, Lecture 4, D. Kirkby


Principle of superposition in 2d
Principle of Superposition in 2D wave.

  • The PoS holds just as well in any number of dimensions.

  • Example:

  • Disturbance A = circular wave centered at (-1,0)

  • Disturbance B = circular wave centered at (+1,0)What does the combined wave motion look like?

Reflection refraction in 2d
Reflection & Refraction in 2D wave.

  • When we considered reflection & refraction of transverse waves on a rope, we were only considering one-dimensional propagation at the interface between two media.A pulse reaching a one-dimensional interface can either bounce back (reflect) and/or keep going (refract).In two dimensions, a wave can also change its direction of propagation…

Reflection in 2d
Reflection in 2D propagation at an interface?

  • Reflection from a “smooth” surface is specular: the angle of incidence equals the angle of reflection.

  • This simple rule still leads to some complex effects.For example, a distance light source reflected from a sphere has highlights:

Physics of Music, Lecture 4, D. Kirkby


The resulting pileup of propagation at an interface?reflected rays producesa characteristic shapecalled a caustic curve.

  • Another complex effect occurs when light on the inside of a circular (or cylindrical) object.Try this demo:

Refraction in 2d toy analogy
Refraction in 2D: Toy Analogy propagation at an interface?

  • What happens when the toy enters the grass (where its wheels will turn slower)?

Physics of Music, Lecture 4, D. Kirkby


Both wheels enter the grass and slow down at the sametime. The toy does not change direction. When leaving thegrass, the toy speeds up but again does not change direction.

Physics of Music, Lecture 4, D. Kirkby


During the transition period when one wheel turns fasterthan the other, the toy will rotate.

Physics of Music, Lecture 4, D. Kirkby


  • The amount that the toy rotates depends on: hits the grass and slows down before the other?

    • how different the speeds are in and out of the grass,

    • how long the wheels are turning at different speeds

  • The length of time the wheels are turning at different speeds depends on the angle at which the toy approaches the grass.

  • Waves arriving at an interface where their propagation speed changes undergo exactly the same change in direction.

Physics of Music, Lecture 4, D. Kirkby


Refraction lenses
Refraction: Lenses hits the grass and slows down before the other?

  • If a wave passes through a pair of parallel interfaces, it emerges on a path parallel to its original path.What if the interfaces are notparallel?

Physics of Music, Lecture 4, D. Kirkby


Try this demo.

E.g., if speed of

sound increases

with elevation(due to increasingtemperature orwinds).

Physics of Music, Lecture 4, D. Kirkby


Refraction prisms
Refraction: Prisms lens if the speed of sound varies with elevation.

  • What if the speed of wave propagation depends on the frequency?The frequency of visible light corresponds to its color:The speed of light in air is almost independent of frequency, but varies in glass. This leads to prism effects:

Physics of Music, Lecture 4, D. Kirkby


Refraction water waves
Refraction: Water Waves lens if the speed of sound varies with elevation.

  • Ocean waves are often approximately plane waves.As they approach the shore, the wave speed decreases in shallower water causing the waves to become more parallel with the shoreline:

Physics of Music, Lecture 4, D. Kirkby


Diffraction
Diffraction lens if the speed of sound varies with elevation.

  • Reflection and refraction are universal properties of wave propagation at an interface where the medium changes.

  • Another universal feature is diffraction.

  • Diffraction results in waves spreading out from any discontinuity (eg, and edge or isolated point) they find.

  • Diffraction allows waves to bend around an obstacle.When you hear someone talking around the corner, you are hearing diffracted sound (and possibly also reflected sound).

Physics of Music, Lecture 4, D. Kirkby


Diffraction and wavelength
Diffraction and Wavelength lens if the speed of sound varies with elevation.

  • Diffraction is important for how sound spreads out from a source. The amount of spreading increases when sound passes through a narrow opening (narrow compared to the wavelength)

Another 2d effect doppler effect
Another 2D Effect: Doppler Effect cases of diffraction: we can approximate a smooth interface with many point-like sources:

  • Things get more interesting when the source of a wave is moving. This is particularly true for sound waves where a source can easily reach speeds near or even exceeding the speed of sound.

  • This results in the Doppler effect:

  • Note that the source in this exampleis generating sound at a constantfrequency. The apparent change ofpitch is entirely due to the source’s

  • motion.

Christian Doppler (1803-1853)

Physics of Music, Lecture 4, D. Kirkby


  • What do we observe? cases of diffraction: we can approximate a smooth interface with many point-like sources: The sound appears to have a higher frequency as its source approaches, and then a lower frequency as it recedes.Try changing the source’s speed in this demo and watch what happens to the spacing of the wave crests:

Physics of Music, Lecture 4, D. Kirkby


Catching up shock waves
Catching Up: Shock Waves cases of diffraction: we can approximate a smooth interface with many point-like sources:

  • Things get even more interesting when a source of sound travels at the speed of sound or faster! This causes a pileup of the wave crests, or shock wave.

Shock waves are important for music also! We will see laterthat shock waves occur when playing a brass instrument.

Physics of Music, Lecture 4, D. Kirkby


The third dimension
The Third Dimension cases of diffraction: we can approximate a smooth interface with many point-like sources:

  • Real waves propagate in 3 dimensions, not 1 or 2.Adding the third dimension gives even more complex patterns, but there is nothing fundamentally new that we cannot describe in 2 dimensions.

  • We also do not have a good way to visualize wave phenomena in 3 dimensions.

Physics of Music, Lecture 4, D. Kirkby


Summary
Summary cases of diffraction: we can approximate a smooth interface with many point-like sources:

  • We studied how waves propagate through an interface (refraction) where their speed changes, first in one dimension then in two dimensions.We learned how apply the technique of limiting cases to get a qualitative feel for reflection and refraction at an interface.

  • We learned about ways to visualize waves in two dimensions and that the Principle of Superposition still holds in two dimensions.

  • We studied diffraction and the Doppler effect.

Physics of Music, Lecture 4, D. Kirkby


Review questions
Review Questions cases of diffraction: we can approximate a smooth interface with many point-like sources:

  • What would pulses sent down a rope with 3 segments look like?

  • Why can you hear someone speaking around the corner of a building? (Does this still work if there are no other buildings nearby to reflect their voice?)

  • Can you catch up with the sound of your own voice? Can you overtake it? (You can’t do either of these things with light!)
