Q. 1054.4( 8 Votes )

Explain why, if we strike a steel tumbler with a metal spoon lightly, we hear a feeble sound but if we hit the tumbler hard, a loud sound is heard.

Answer :

This is because the amplitude of vibrations is small when we beat the spoon lightly and so feeble sound is produced but when it is beaten with force then, amplitude of vibrations is large, so loud sound is produced.
