Sound waves of frequency 660 Hz fall normally on a perfectly reflecting wall. The shortest distance from the wall at which the air particles have the maximum amplitude of vibration is _____________ m. (JEE 1984 screening)
Revision Question 1
The equation of a travelling sound wave is y = 6.0 sin (600 t - 1.8 x) where y is measured in 10^-5 m. t in second and x in metre.
(a) Find the ratio of the displacement amplitude of the particles to the wavelength of the wave.
(b) Find the ratio of the velocity amplitude of the particles to the wave speed.
