WhatisSOUND?

Sound is longitudinal pressure waves that travel through elastic media.

slide3

We can produce these vibrations by :

          • Making a column of air vibrate,
          • plucking a string, or
          • by hitting an object
slide4

Sound Waves

Sound Waves are caused by a source vibrating to and fro and causing successive compressions (squashing) and rarefactions (spreading out) in the medium; hence sound cannot travel in a vacuum.

Sound waves are received by the ear, and interpreted by the brain.

slide5

Sound can vary in pitch– howhighorlowa note is.

It can also vary involume –howloudor howsoftthe note is

slide6

An amplifier makes the sound louder. We talk about the amplitude of the wave, which tells us how much energy there is. The taller the wave the louder the sound because more energy has been put in

slide7

The loudness depends on how much energy the sound wave has.

In an electric key board an amplifier makes the sound louder.

A louder note has a bigger amplitude. (height)

slide9

These help to make sound louder so the amplitude or height of the wave would be higher. The wave has more energy

slide10

The pitch depends on how many vibrations there are.

The more frequent the vibrations the higher the note.

The fewer the vibrations the lower the note

slide11

The higher the note, the more waves per second so the waves are squashed together.

The waves will have a short wave length.

slide12

The lower the note, the FEWER waves per second so the waves are spread out.

The waves will have a longer wave length.

slide13

Different instruments produce different shaped wave traces.

The extra wiggles are known as harmonics. These give the instrument its “colour”.

slide14

Most instruments usually produce many frequencies or harmonics at the same time. All the harmonics add together to make a complicated waveform.
