- Intensity of sound
- Loudness of sound
- Intensity and loudness of sound
Let the source propagate a sound wave whose intensity at a point (initially) be I. Suppose we consider a case when the amplitude of the sound wave is doubled and the frequency is reduced to one-fourth. Calculate now the new intensity of sound at the same point?
In an empty room why is it that a tone sounds louder than in the room having things like furniture etc.
Which of the following options is correct?
|(1) Quality||(A) Intensity|
|(2) Pitch||(B) Waveform|
|(3) Loudness||(C) Frequency|
Options for (1), (2) and (3), respectively are
A man sitting on a swing which is moving to an angle of 60° from the vertical is blowing a whistle which has a frequency of 2.0 k Hz. The whistle is 2.0 m from the fixed support point of the swing. A sound detector which detects the whistle sound is kept in front of the swing. The maximum frequency the sound detector detected is
