    Thank you for the A2A. Light and sound both travel in waves, but not of the same type. Visible light is part of the electromagnetic spectrum, and can therefore travel through a vacuum. Sound propagates as a longitudinal wave, and needs a medium . •The frequency of sound waves is determined by the frequency of the vibrations that produce the sound. Sound Waves 2 •People are usually able to hear sounds with frequencies between about 20 Hz Hz. •Pitch is the human perception of the frequency sound. •Sounds with low frequencies have low pitchFile Size: 1MB.

    What Is Sound? Sound is a pressure wave which is created by a vibrating object. This vibrations set particles in the sur-rounding medium (typical air) in vibrational motion, thus transporting energy through the medium. Since the particles are moving in parallel direction to the wave movement, the sound wave is referred to as a longitudinal wave.   When a light wave with a single frequency strikes an object, a number of things could happen. The light wave could be absorbed by the object, in which case its energy is converted to heat. The light wave could be reflected by the object. And the light wave could be transmitted by the object. sound energy: Sound is a type of energy made by.

I had originally owned this book back in the '60's when in high school. A young science nerd, photographer, short-wave listener, lover of music and op-art, lasers and holography, I found stimulating knowledge and understanding of how all kinds of "wavy" energy work in similar ways/5(2).

Waves, Sound and Light - Lessons and Learning Objectives. Light and sound are a part of our everyday lives. We rely on them in many ways to keep us safe, alert us and entertain us. Definition. Sound is defined as "(a) Oscillation in pressure, stress, particle displacement, particle velocity, etc., propagated in a medium with internal forces (e.g., elastic or viscous), or the superposition of such propagated oscillation.

(b) Auditory sensation evoked by the oscillation described in (a)." Sound can be viewed as a wave motion in air or other elastic media. In this c.

Most familiar are surface waves that travel on water, but sound, light, and the motion of subatomic particles all exhibit wavelike properties. In the simplest waves, the disturbance oscillates periodically (see periodic motion) with a fixed frequency and. Oscillatory motion is interesting in that it often takes a fixed amount of time for an oscillation to occur.

This kind of motion is said to be periodic and the time for one complete oscillation (or one cycle) is called a period. Periodic motion is important in the study of sound, light, and other waves. Ancient wave theories. Much of our current understanding of wave motion has come from the study of acoustics.

Ancient Greek philosophers, many of whom were interested in music, hypothesized that there was a connection between waves and sound, and that vibrations, or disturbances, must be responsible for sounds.

Pythagoras observed in BCE that vibrating. Books by Robert G. Brown Physics Textbooks • Introductory Physics I and II A lecture note style textbook series intended to support the teaching of introductory physics, with calculus, at a level suitable for Duke undergraduates.

The ancient Greeks believed that there were four elements that everything was made up of: earth, water, air, and fire. This theory was suggested around BC, and it was later supported and added to by Aristotle.

(Aristotle also suggested that there was a fifth element, aether, because it seemed strange that the stars would be made out of. the period of sound waves are brief. Pressure variations caused by sound waves can be detected by animals with their ears and; by machines with microphones; Intensity is an objective measure of the time-averaged power density of a wave at a particular location.

The SI unit of intensity is the watt per square meter.Chapter Wave Motion. pulse of sound (a longitudinal wave) which, after reflection from objects, returns and is detected by the animal.

Echolocation waves can have frequencies of aboutHz. (a) Estimate the wavelength of a sea animal’s File Size: 2MB.The different colors of light that we see correspond to different frequencies.

The frequency of red light is lower than the frequency of blue light. Because the speed of both kinds of light is the same, a lower frequency wave has a longer wavelength.
