In this textbook a combination of standard mathematics and modern numerical methods is used to describe a wide range of natural wave phenomena, such as sound, light and water waves, particularly in specific popular contexts, e. It introduces the reader to the basic physical principles that allow the description of the oscillatory motion of matter and classical fields, as well as resulting concepts including interference, diffraction, and coherence.

Sound , a mechanical disturbance from a state of equilibrium that propagates through an elastic material medium.
Physics is a specific area of study in the field of science that focuses on the makeup and properties of both energy and matter, as well as how the two interact together. Some of the forms of matter and energy that are covered in physics include electricity, radiation, atoms and heat. All of these terms and topics can make learning about physics seem complicated. There are theories and principles to study and experiments to conduct. All of the information can be understandably overwhelming, especially for kids.
Segment D: Sound: Diffraction and Interference
The sensation felt by our ears is called sound. It is a form of energy which makes us hear. We hear several sounds around us in our everyday life. A wave is a vibratory disturbance in a medium which carries energy from one point to another without there being a direct contact between the two points. We can say that a wave is produced by the vibrations of the particles of the medium through which it passes. There are two types of waves: Longitudinal waves and Transverse waves.
Physics of Oscillations and Waves
The losses in the reflection of sound on solids are investigated. The heat conduction of the solid disturbs the temperature distribution in the gas and sets up a temperature wave. The fact that the pressure in the gas near the wall is no longer in phase with the density results in a heating of the gas on the wall. The effect amounts to a few percent for a million cycles. The scattering of the molecules on the wall, the scattering of the sound waves by uneven places, the effect of adsorption are also investigated. They become important only at higher frequencies.

Think about how the metal fingers would vibrate. They are attached on one end and can only vibrate up and down on the other end. They would make a similar displacement graph as a closed tube. Only a quarter of a wavelength can fit on the finger.
We head back to the recording studio to study interference and diffraction of sound waves. We investigate qualitatively how diffraction affects sound waves of various frequencies. We also explore how constructive and destructive interference patterns are created and what that means for what we hear coming from a sound source. Develop and use mathematical models to explain mechanical and electromagnetic waves as a propagating disturbance that transfers energy.

In physics , sound is a vibration that propagates as an acoustic wave , through a transmission medium such as a gas, liquid or solid. In human physiology and psychology , sound is the reception of such waves and their perception by the brain. Different animal species have varying hearing ranges.

The last point to be highlighted is the emphasis of an important misconception of waves. Waves transfer energy but do not transfer mass. To see this an easy way is to take an example of a floating ball a few yards out to sea. As the propagation i.
A vibrating tuning fork is capable of creating such a longitudinal wave. As the tines of the fork vibrate back and forth, they push on neighboring air particles. The forward motion of a tine pushes air molecules horizontally to the right and the backward retraction of the tine creates a low-pressure area allowing the air particles to move back to the left. Because of the longitudinal motion of the air particles, there are regions in the air where the air particles are compressed together and other regions where the air particles are spread apart. These regions are known as compressions and rarefactions respectively.
Like any wave, a sound wave doesn't just stop when it reaches the end of the medium or when it encounters an obstacle in its path. Rather, a sound wave will undergo certain behaviors when it encounters the end of the medium or an obstacle. Possible behaviors include reflection off the obstacle, diffraction around the obstacle, and transmission accompanied by refraction into the obstacle or new medium. In this part of Lesson 3, we will investigate behaviors that have already been discussed in a previous unit and apply them towards the reflection, diffraction, and refraction of sound waves. When a wave reaches the boundary between one medium another medium, a portion of the wave undergoes reflection and a portion of the wave undergoes transmission across the boundary. As discussed in the previous part of Lesson 3 , the amount of reflection is dependent upon the dissimilarity of the two media. For this reason, acoustically minded builders of auditoriums and concert halls avoid the use of hard, smooth materials in the construction of their inside halls.
