Question

Consider a sound wave modeled with the equation s(x, t) = 3.00 nm cos(3.50 m−1x − 1,800 s−1t). What is the maximum displacement (in nm), the wavelength (in m), the frequency (in Hz), and the speed (in m/s) of the sound wave?

–   maximum displacement = 3.00nm

–   λ = 1.79m

–  f = 286.47 s^-1

Explanation:

You have the following equation for a sound wave:

(1)

The general form of the equation of a sound wave can be expressed as the following formula:

(2)

A: amplitude of the wave = 3.00nm

k: wave number = 3.50m^-1

w: angular frequency = 1,800s^-1

The maximum displacement of the wave is given by the amplitude of the wave, then you have:

maximum displacement = A = 3.00nm

The wavelength is given by :

The values for the wavelength is 1.79m

– The frequency is:

The frequency is 286.47s-1
