PRACTICE: (Sound waves) [speed of sound wave in air =340 ms-1]

1. SLG09Q28 Ultrasonic waves sent fron a transmitter to

the seabed to measure the depth of the sea.

A 0.147 s
B 0.294 s
C 0.312 s
D 0.278 s

What is the wave phenomenon involved? 6. MLK102Q27 Diagram shows sound waves from a
A Refraction piano.
B Reflection
C Diffraction
D Interference

2. PNG10Q33 What happens to the frequency and

loudness of sound waves when it is reflected? Which of the following statements is true?
Frequency Loudness A P has a higher pitch than Q
A Unchanged Decreases B Q has a higer pitch than R
B Increases Decreases C R has the highest pitch
C Unchanged Increases D P, Q and R have the same pitch
D Increases Unchanged

the sea? [Assume the speed of sound in sea water =
1500 ms-1].

This phenomenon happens because the radio waves is

A reflection A 8.3 m
B refraction B 270 m
C diffraction C 540 m
D interference D 4166 m

the valley after 1.0 s. the ultrasonic waves are received by the detector on the
boat 0.02 s after the transmission. The speed of
ultrasonic waves in the sea water is 4200 ms-1.

The sound travels at 340 ms-1. What is the width of the
