Q. 9

A sound wave of frequency 100 Hz is travelling in air. The speed of sound in air is 350 m s-1. (a) By how much is the phase changed at a given point in 2.5 ms? (b) What is the phase difference at a given instant between two points separated by a distance of 10.0 cm along the direction of propagation?

Answer :

Speed of sound in air

Frequency of sound wave

(a) As we know,

Distance travelled by the particle:

Phase difference is given by:

On substituting the values, we get:

(b) For the second case:
Distance between the two points:

On substituting the respective values in the above equation, we get:

The phase difference between the two points is.
