Sound

  • A sound is a form of energy that is emitted by a vibrating body that travels in the form of waves and causes the sensation of hearing.
  • The sound is produced by vibrations.
  • Sound is transmitted in the form of waves.
  • Sound waves are Mechanical - Longitudinal waves.

Sound characteristics

  • When sound waves travel through - the density of the medium changes.
  • Compression
    • The part that carries the vibrations is the part with the crowded mass of particles.
    • Compression has a high density as well as energy.
  • Rarefaction
    • The part of the vibration where the particles are scattered far away.
    • Rarefaction has less density and less energy.

Wavelength

  • The distance between the two nearest particles that are in the same phase is called wavelength.
  • SI:m

Amplitude

  • The maximum displacement of the particles of a medium from their mean positions during the propagation of a wave is called the amplitude of the wave.
  • If amplitude increases, wavelength increases.
  • As the wavelength increases, the sound becomes loud.
  • SI:m

Frequency

  • Frequency is the number of waves that occur over a period of time.
  • SI: Hertz (Hz).

Time period

  • The time required to produce one complete wave (or cycle) is called the time period of the wave.

Pitch of Sound

  • Pitch depends on its frequency. The higher the frequency of the sound, the higher Pitch of Sound.
  • The higher pitch, the sharper the sound.
  • The pitch is higher for women than men.

Velocity of Sound

  • The speed of sound is lowest in air, medium in liquid and highest in static.
  • Sound cannot travel through a vacuum.

Types of sounds

Audible range (Sonic)

  • The frequency at which a human can hear this sound is 20Hz - 20KHz.
  • g. human voice.

Ultrasonic

  • Its frequency is more than 20KHz.
  • Humans cannot hear the ultrasonic sound, but cats, chimpanzees, rats, whereabouts, toddlers, dolphins, bats (produces up to 1 lakh Hz), etc.
  • Usage:
    • To detect tumours in the body
    • To monitor fetal growth
    • In the ECG Machine
    • To preserve milk-substances

Infrasonic Sound

  • Its frequency is less than 20Hz.
  • Elephants, Rhinos, Whales, etc. produce Infrasonic Sound.
  • This type of sound is first produced during an earthquake, so it is used in disaster management.
