No, we cannot hear the sound of stones. Sound is a mechanical wave and requires a medium to travel; there is no medium on the moon.
No, we cannot hear the sound of our own footsteps because the vibrations of sound waves from the footsteps must travel through our body to reach our ears. By that time however, the sound waves diminish in magnitude.

#### Page No 351:

Yes, we can hear ourselves speak. The ear membrane, being a part of our body, vibrates and allows sound to travel through our body.
No, we cannot hear our friend speak as there is no medium (air) through which sound can travel.

#### Page No 351:

A longitudinal wave propagates when the rod is hit vertically.

When hit horizontally too, a longitudinal wave is produced (sound wave). However, if the rod vibrates, the wave so developed is transverse in nature.

#### Page No 351:

It depends on the position of the speakers. The placement decides whether the interference so formed is constructive or destructive.

#### Page No 351:

The frequency of sound produced by vibration of vocal chords is amplified by resonance in the voice box. Now resonant frequency is directly proportional to the velocity of sound present in the voice box. Now as Helium has less density than air, velocity of sound in Helium is higher than that in air. Higher velocity of sound in Helium implies that the resonant frequency of the sound in voice chamber filled with Helium will be higher than with air. Thus the voice is high pitched in Helium filled voice box.

#### Page No 351:

The displacement node is a pressure anti-node and via-versa.

#### Page No 351:

We know that: intensity ∝ (amplitude)2.
However, the intensity is independent of frequency. As the amplitude of the vibrating forks is the same, both the forks produce sounds of the same intensity in the air.

#### Page No 351:

The frequency of the sound is still that of the source. However, the frequency of the vibrations received by the observer changes due to relative motion.
If both (the observer and the source) move towards each other, then the frequency of the vibrations received by the observer will be higher compared to the original frequency.

#### Page No 351:

(a) Both A and B are correct.

Sound is a longitudinal wave produced by the oscillation of pressure at a point, thus, forming compressions and rarefactions. That portion of gas itself does not move but the pressure variation causes a disturbance.

#### Page No 351:

(d) .

When we clap, there is a change in pressure, which sets a disturbance and forms a wave. However, this variation is not uniform every time we clap (unlike in the case of a sound wave). Hence, we sum up all the disturbances.

#### Page No 351:

(d) cannot be compared with its value in water.

If B is the bulk modulus and ρ is the density, then the velocity of sound is given by:
$\mathrm{Velocity}=\sqrt{\frac{B}{\mathrm{\rho }}}$
If both B and ρ are greater, then we cannot compare  $\frac{2B}{2\mathrm{\rho }}=\frac{3B}{3\mathrm{\rho }}=\frac{B}{\mathrm{\rho }}$.
For proper comparison, we need numerical values.

#### Page No 351:

(c) Wavelength

The velocity of a sound wave varies with temperature as follows:
$v\propto \sqrt{T}$
As the temperature increases, the speed also increases. However, since the frequency remains the same, its wavelength changes.

#### Page No 351:

(d) Frequency

When a sound or light wave undergoes refraction, its frequency remains constant because there is no change in its phase.

#### Page No 351:

(c) the elastic property as well as the inertia property

Propagation of any wave through a medium depends on whether it is elastic and possesses inertia. A wave needs to oscillate (elastic property) for it to be propagated and if it does not have inertia, the oscillations won't keep on moving to and fro about the mean position.

#### Page No 351:

(a) ${P}_{1}={P}_{2}$

Since the average power transmitted by a wave is independent of the wavelength, we have ${P}_{1}={P}_{2}$.

#### Page No 351:

(d) the energy is redistributed and the distribution remains constant in time.

The energy is redistributed due to the presence of interference. However, as the frequency and phase remain constant , the distribution also remains constant with time.

#### Page No 352:

Given:
Velocity of sound in air v = 330 m/s
Velocity of sound through the steel tube vs = 5200 m/s
Here, Length of the steel tube S = 1 m
As we know, $t=\frac{S}{v}$
and ${t}_{2}=\frac{1}{5200}$

Where, t1 is the time taken by the sound in air.
t2 is the time taken by the sound in steel tube.
Therefore,

Hence, the time gap between two hearings is 2.75 ms.

#### Page No 352:

(b) at the middle of the pipe

For an open organ pipe in fundamental mode, an anti-node is formed at the middle, where the amplitude of the wave is maximum. Hence, the pressure variation is also maximum at the middle.

#### Page No 352:

(a) longitudinal stationary waves

An open organ pipe has sound waves that are longitudinal. These waves undergo repeated reflections till resonance to form standing waves.

#### Page No 352:

c) υ

If v is the velocity of the wave and L is the length of the pipe,
then the fundamental frequency for an open organ pipe is
$\nu =\frac{v}{2L}$

For a closed organ pipe of length L' = L/2,  the fundamental frequency is
$\nu =\frac{v}{4L\text{'}}=\frac{v×2}{4×L}=\frac{v}{2L}=v$

(When the pipe is dipped in water, it behaves like a closed organ pipe that is half the length)

#### Page No 352:

(c) for both longitudinal and transverse waves

When two or more waves of slightly different frequencies (v1v2 ≯ 10) travel with the same speed in the same direction, they superimpose to give beats. Thus, the waves may be longitudinal or transverse.

#### Page No 352:

a) 506 Hz

The frequency of the sonometer may be 512 ± 6Hz, i.e., 506 Hz or 518 Hz.
On increasing the tension in a sonometer wire, the velocity of the wave (v) increases proportionately as the number of beats decreases. Therefore, the frequency of the sonometer wire is 506 Hz.

#### Page No 352:

(d) $=\mathrm{v}$

For the Doppler effect to occur, there must be relative motion between the source and the observer. However, this is not the case here. Hence, the frequency heard by the passenger is υ.

#### Page No 352:

(d) separation between the source and the observer

${v}_{0}=\left(\frac{v±{u}_{0}}{v±{u}_{s}}\right){v}_{s}$
It is clear from the equation that the change in frequency due to Doppler effect depends only on the relative motion and not on the distance between the source and the observer.

#### Page No 352:

(c) ${\mathrm{\nu }}_{2}>{\mathrm{\nu }}_{3}>{\mathrm{\nu }}_{1}$

At B, the velocity of the source is along the line joining the source and the observer. Therefore, at B, the source is approaching with the highest velocity as compared to A and C. Hence, the frequency heard is maximum when the source is at B.

#### Page No 352:

d) Wave velocity

The frequency, wavelength and amplitude do not have a unique value in the sound produced.
The frequency (and wavelength) changes as the pitch of the sound varies, while the amplitude is different as the loudness varies. However, the speed of sound in the air at a particular temperature is constant, i.e., it has a unique value.

#### Page No 352:

(a) larger wavelength
(c) larger velocity

The velocity varies with temperature as $v\propto \sqrt{T}$. Therefore, it increases.
Since the frequency remains constant, the wavelength will increase as $\lambda \propto v$.

#### Page No 352:

(b) The first overtone may be 400 Hz.
(c) The first overtone may be 600 Hz.
(d) 600 Hz is an overtone.

For an open organ pipe:
${\nu }_{n}=n{\nu }_{1}$

nth harmonic = (n – 1)th overtone

If the pipe is an open organ pipe, then the 1st overtone is 400 Hz. Option (b) is correct.

Also, υ3 = 600 Hz, i.e., second overtone = 600 Hz.
600 Hz is an overtone. Therefore, option (d) is correct.

If the pipe is a closed organ pipe, then ${\nu }_{n}=\left(2n-1\right){\nu }_{1}$.

(2n – 1)th harmonic = (n – 1)th overtone

For n = 2:
1st overtone = 3rd harmonic = 3υ1
=3 × 200
= 600 Hz
Therefore, option (c) is also correct.

#### Page No 352:

(c) The wavelength of the sound in the medium towards the observer decreases.

Due to Doppler effect, the frequency or wavelength of the sound changes towards the observer only.
The actual frequency and wavelength of the source does not change.

#### Page No 352:

(a) Frequency
(d) Time period

The frequency does not change. Hence, the time period (inverse of frequency) also remains the same.
Due to wind, the relative velocity of sound changes. Thus, the wavelength also changes so as to keep the frequency the same. (As $v=\nu \lambda$)

#### Page No 353:

Given:
The distance of the building from the meeting is 80 m.
Velocity of sound in air v = 320 ms−1
Total distance travelled by the sound after echo is S = 80 × 2 = 160 m

Therefore, the maximum time interval will be 0.5 seconds.

Therefore, the phase difference is zero.

(b) Zero: the particles are in the same phase since they have the same path.

As we know,

On substituting the respective values, we get:

#### Page No 353:

Let ${\beta }_{A}$ be the sound level at a point 5 m (= r1) away from the point source and ${\beta }_{B}$ be the sound level at a distance of 50 m (= r2) away from the point source.
∴​ ${\beta }_{A}$ = 40 dB
Sound level is given by:
$\beta =10{\mathrm{log}}_{10}\left(\frac{I}{{I}_{0}}\right)$
According to the question,

Thus, the sound level of a point 50 m away from the point source is 20 dB.

Audio output of the small speaker P = 2 W
Let the closest distance be x.
We have:
$I=\frac{P}{4\pi {r}^{2}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\left(\frac{2}{4\mathrm{\pi }{x}^{2}}\right)=1$

Hence, the closest distance of the human ear from the small speaker is 40 cm.

Given:
Initial sound level ${\beta }_{1}$ = 50 dB
Final sound level ${\beta }_{2}$ = 60 dB
Constant reference intensity ${I}_{0}$ = 10$-$12 W/m2
We can find initial intensity I1 using:
${\beta }_{1}=10{\mathrm{log}}_{10}\left(\frac{{I}_{1}}{{I}_{0}}\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$.

On solving, we get:
${I}_{1}$ = 10$-$7 W/m2.
Similarly,
${\beta }_{2}=10{\mathrm{log}}_{10}\left(\frac{{I}_{2}}{{I}_{0}}\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$.
On substituting the values and solving, we get:

As the intensity is proportional to the square of pressure amplitude (p),
we have:
$\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\frac{{I}_{2}}{{I}_{1}}={\left(\frac{{p}_{2}}{{p}_{1}}\right)}^{2}=\left(\frac{{10}^{-6}}{{10}^{-7}}\right)=10$

Hence, the pressure amplitude is increased by $\sqrt{10}$ factor.

Let the intensity of each student be I and the sound level of 50 students be ${\beta }_{1}$. If the number of students increases to 100, the sound level becomes ${\beta }_{2}$.
Using $\beta =10{\mathrm{log}}_{10}\left(\frac{I}{{I}_{0}}\right)$,
where I0 is the constant reference intensity, I is the intensity and β is the sound level.
${\beta }_{1}=10{\mathrm{log}}_{10}\left(\frac{50I}{{I}_{0}}\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}{\beta }_{2}=10{\mathrm{log}}_{10}\left(\frac{100I}{{I}_{0}}\right)$

Given:
Wavelength of sound wave λ = 20 cm
Separation between the two sources AC = 20 cm
Distance of detector from source BD = 20 cm

If the detector is moved through a distance x, then the path difference of the sound waves from sources A and C reaching B is given by:
Path difference = AB $-$ BC
=

To hear the minimum, this path difference should be equal to:
$\frac{\left(2n+1\right)\lambda }{2}$ =$\frac{\lambda }{2}$ = 10 cm
So,
$\sqrt{{\left(20\right)}^{2}+{\left(10+x\right)}^{2}}-\sqrt{{\left(20\right)}^{2}+{\left(10-x\right)}^{2}}$ = 10

On solving, we get, x = 12.6 cm.

Hence, the detector should be shifted by a distance of 12.6 cm.

Given:
Speed of sound in air v = 320 ms−1
The path difference of the sound waves coming from the loudspeaker and reaching the person is given by:
Δx = 6.4 m − 6.0 m = 0.4 m
If $\left(f\right)$ is the frequency of either wave, then the wavelength of either wave will be:
$\mathrm{\lambda }=\frac{v}{f}=\frac{320}{f}$
For destructive interference, the path difference of the two sound waves reaching the listener should be an odd integral multiple of half of the wavelength.
$\therefore ∆x=\left(2n+1\right)\frac{\lambda }{2}$   , where n is an integer.
On substituting the respective values, we get:

Thus, on applying the different values of n, we find that the frequencies within the specified range that caused destructive interference are 1200 Hz, 2000 Hz, 2800 Hz, 3600 Hz and 4400 Hz.

As shown in the figure, the path difference between the sound waves reaching the listener is given by:
$∆x={S}_{2}L-{S}_{1}L\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$
$∆x=\sqrt{\left(3.2{\right)}^{2}+\left(2.4{\right)}^{2}}-3.2$

Wavelength of either sound wave:
$=\left(\frac{320}{f}\right)$
We know that destructive interference will occur if the path difference is an odd integral multiple of the wavelength.

Path difference between the sound waves reaching point P is given by:

Suppose, for constructive interference, this path difference be made equal to the integral multiple of $\lambda$.
Hence,

Resultant intensity at P = I0
The two sources of sound S1 and S2 vibrate with the same frequency and are in the same phase.
(a) When θ = 45°:
Path difference = S1P − S2P = 0

So, when the source is switched off, the intensity of sound at P is $\frac{{I}_{0}}{4}$.
(b) When θ = 60°, the path difference is also 0. Similarly, it can be proved that the intensity at P is $\frac{{I}_{0}}{4}$ when the source is switched off.

(b) The frequency $\left({f}_{1}\right)$ heard near the cliff is given by:

As we know,
$v=f\lambda$.

(c) Here, ${v}_{0}$ = 15 ms$-1$.

Frequency of the reflected sound wave $\left({f}_{2}\right)$ heard by the person sitting in the car:

(d) He will not hear any beat in 10 seconds because the difference of frequencies is greater than 10 (persistence of sound for the human ear is 1/10 of a second).

Given:
Velocity of sound in air v = 324 ms−1
Frequency of sound sent by source ${n}_{0}$ = 400 Hz
Let the speed of the car be x m/s.
The frequency of sound heard at the car is given by:

If ${n}_{1}$ is the frequency of sound heard by the operator, then its value is given by:

${n}_{1}=\frac{324}{324-x}×n\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$

$410=\frac{324}{324-x}×n\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$

On substituting the value of n from equation (1), we have:

The speed of the car is 4 m/s.

Given:
Velocity of sound in air v = 330 ms−1
Distance travelled by the sound s = 330 m
Frequency of the sound n = 2 kHz
(a) Velocity v = $\frac{s}{t}$

∴  Time t =

(b) The frequency of sound heard by the listener is 2 kHz.
(Since frequency does not depend on distance.)

(c)  s = 22 m (= 22 m/s $×$ 1 s) away from P on x-axis.

Given:
Speed of sound in air v = 330 ms−1
Frequency of sound ${f}_{0}$ = 4000 Hz
Velocity of source ${v}_{s}$ = 22 m/s
The apparent frequency heard by the listener $\left(f\right)$ = ?

At t = 0, let the source be at a distance of y from the origin. Now, the time taken by the sound
to reach the listener is the same as the time taken by the sound to reach the origin.
∴​

Velocity of source along the line joining the source $\left(S\right)$ and listener $\left(L\right)$:
${v}_{s}\mathrm{cos}\theta$ = $22.\frac{y}{\sqrt{660+{y}^{2}}}=\frac{22y}{15y}=\frac{22}{15}$

Frequency heard by the listener $\left(f\right)$ is

$⇒f$= 4017.85 ≈ 4018 Hz

#### Page No 357:

Given:
Velocity of the source ${v}_{s}$ = 170 m/s
Frequency of the source ${f}_{0}$ = 1200 Hz
(a)

As shown in the figure,
the time taken by the sound to reach the listener is the same as the time taken by the sound to reach the point of intersection.

Frequency of source will be:
${v}_{s}\mathrm{cos}\theta$ = $170.\frac{y}{\sqrt{{200}^{2}+{y}^{2}}}=170×\frac{1}{2}=85$

The frequency of sound $\left(f\right)$ heard by the detector is given by:

(b) The detector will detect a frequency of 1200 Hz at a minimum distance.

∴ Distance

Let d be the initial distance between the source and the observer.
If v is the speed of sound emitted by the observer, then the time taken by the sound to reach the observer is given by:
T1 = d/v
The source is also moving. Therefore, at t = T, it moves a distance of (s) and is given by:
$s=0×T+\frac{1}{2}a{T}^{2}$

Time taken by the pulse to reach the observer:
$\frac{\left(d-\frac{1}{2}a{T}^{2}\right)}{v}$

Time difference $\left(∆t\right)$ between the two pulses:

$\left(T+\left(\frac{d-\frac{1}{2}a{T}^{2}}{v}\right)\right)-\frac{d}{v}$ =$T-\frac{a{T}^{2}}{2v}$

On replacing u = $\frac{1}{T}$

the apparent frequency will be:

$\frac{1}{∆t}$=
$\frac{2u{v}^{2}}{2uv-a}$.
