Working
600 Sound
• Sources of sound.
• Sound as a longitudinal wave.
• Characteristics of a sound wave: Amplitude (Relate amplitude with loudness) and Frequency
• Sound needs a medium to propagate
• Reflection and Absorption of sound.
• Relative speed of sound in different mediums.
700 Electricity and Magnetism
