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.
Segment D: Sound: Diffraction and Interference
Sound waves are reflected from the surfaces like light waves, obeying laws of reflection; angle of incident is equal to the angle of reflection. This can be observed in a simple experiment in which a source of sound such as a transmitter sends sound at a certain angle to the normal to a wall and a higher sound is received from reflection at the same angle on another side of the normal. The regular reflection occurs from a surface if a whole part of an incident wavefront is reflected uniformly. Since the sound wave in speech has a wavelength of various meters, they are reflected from rough surfaces such as cliffs, walls etc. Reverberation occurs after incident rays undergo multiple reflections. Soundwave bends when the parts of wave fronts travel at different speeds.
Diffraction involves the bending or spreading out of a sound wave in a single medium, in which the speed of sound is constant. Another important case in which sound waves bend or spread out is called refraction. Refraction is the reason why ocean waves approach a shore parallel to the beach and why glass lenses can be used to focus light waves. An important refraction of sound is caused by the natural temperature gradient of the atmosphere. Under normal conditions the Sun heats the Earth and the Earth heats the adjacent air. The heated air then cools as it rises, creating a gradient in which atmospheric temperature decreases with elevation by an amount known as the adiabatic lapse rate.
Mastering Physics pp Cite as. A wave is a travelling disturbance which carries energy away from its source. Some waves, such as light waves and radio waves, can pass through an evacuated or empty space. In this way we receive energy from the Sun and other more distant stars. Unable to display preview.

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. Develop and use models to describe and calculate characteristics related to the interference and diffraction of waves single and double slits. Plan and carry out investigations to describe changes in diffraction patterns associated with geometry and wavelength for mechanical and electromagnetic waves.

In the previous topic we considered the continuous interchange of potential and kinetic energy in oscillating systems where the total energy remains trapped or would remain trapped in the absence of damping.

Take these specific vocabulary terms and create a concept map about waves. Make sure that you have connections between terms, not just arrows. There is no "Right" or "Wrong" as long as you can explain the relationship between the two. November 9th, Wave Practice back of Wave Puzzle :.

Охранник пожал плечами. - Через сорок пять минут. Беккер замахал руками. Ну и порядки. Звук мотора, похожий на визг циркулярной пилы, заставил его повернуться. Парень крупного сложения и прильнувшая к нему сзади девушка въехали на стоянку на стареньком мотоцикле Веспа-250.
Сьюзан огляделась. Третий узел был пуст, свет шел от работающих мониторов. Их синеватое свечение придавало находящимся предметам какую-то призрачную расплывчатость. Она повернулась к Стратмору, оставшемуся за дверью. В этом освещении его лицо казалось мертвенно-бледным, безжизненным. - Сьюзан, - сказал .
Вторжение прекращено. Наверху, на экране ВР, возникла первая из пяти защитных стен. Черные атакующие линии начали исчезать. - Происходит восстановление! - кричал Джабба. - Все становится на свои места. Какой-то миг еще ощущались сомнения, казалось, что в любую секунду все снова начнет разваливаться на части. Но затем стала подниматься вторая стена, за ней третья.
