P199: Introduction & Start of Sound

Lecturer Stacy McCormack

Physics Department, Indiana University

sound in space

MISCONCEPTION!

Molecules in solid, liquid, gas

Sound in space?
sound waves terms

Longitudinal wave-individual vibrating objects move right or left and the disturbance also moves right or left (ex. sound wave)

Transverse wave-individual objects move up and down, but disturbance moves right or left (ex. water wave)

Amplitude-height from rest position (determined by the amount of energy), loudness

Wavelength-distance between two like molecules (humans hear from 0.65 in to 54 ft, musical note A is 31 in)

Sound Waves & Terms

Frequency & Pitch

  • Frequency-how quickly the vibration is occurring, how much time is needed to complete a cycle
  • High frequency-very fast, many cycles per second
  • Low frequency-slower, less cycles per second
  • Measured in Hertz (Hz)-known as cycles/second
  • Musical note A has a frequency of 440 Hz
  • Humans can hear 20 Hz-20,000 Hz
  • Pitch is our perception of frequency
  • High pitch=high frequency=soprano singer
  • Low or deep pitch=low frequency=bass singer
why are some sounds high pitched and others low pitched

Node-a place where there is NO VIBRATION-the molecule always remains in the same location

Antinode-a place where there is MAXIMUM VIBRATION-the molecule is moving

Why are some sounds high-pitched and others low-pitched?

NOTE: Distance between adjacent node and antinode is ¼ wavelength

Large or long distance between node and antinode=

large wavelength=

small frequency=low pitch

Small or short distance between node and antinode=

small wavelength=

large frequency=high pitch

Tuning fork

Antinode: MAXIMUM VIBRATION

Node: NO VIBRATION

Pitch and Tuning Forks

Remember: distance between node and antinode is ¼ wavelength

So to find wavelength, take N-A distance and multiply by 4!

  • Two antinodes at the ends because molecules have maximum vibration
  • Since antinodes are always separated by nodes, there must be a node in the center
  • Can determine wavelength
  • Longer straw=higher or lower pitch?

Using scissors, add a hole at the halfway point

Creates an antinode

Shortens wavelength

Higher pitch

Closing off one end makes a node

Makes wavelength longer than if just left open
