• ## Difference between transverse waves and longitudinal waves

Transverse waves and longitudinal waves are types of mechanical waves. The basic difference between transverse and longitudinal waves is that in transverse waves particles of waves move perpendicular in the direction of the wave while in longitudinal waves particles move…

• ## Properties of Wave motion

Wave motion is a form of disturbance that travels forward due to the repeated periodic motion of particles about their mean position. Now we will discuss the characteristics of wave motion. What are the main properties of Wave Motion? Crests:…

• ## Velocity, frequency and Wavelength

The relationship between the velocity, frequency, and wavelength of a wave is called the wave equation. Explanation: If the speed of waves is v and their time period is T then the wavelength of waves can be calculated as: This…

• ## Examples of Simple Harmonic Motion

Simple harmonic motion is the kind of vibratory motion in Physics in which the body moves back and forth about its mean position. Examples of simple harmonic motion are: – A sheet fixed at one end and vibrating at the other end.…

• ## Types of sound waves with examples and characteristics

“Sound is a form of energy that is passed from one point to another as a wave.”Sound is an example of a longitudinal wave. Sound waves do not exist in space, they require any medium for travel, speed of sound…

• ## How to calculate speed of sound in solids, liquids and gasses?

The speed of sound can be calculated by the formula: Speed of sound = Frequency of sound wave * Wavelength v = f ×λ Sound waves can be transmitted by any medium containing particles that can vibrate. They cannot pass…

• ## What are some Applications of Doppler Effect?

What is Doppler effect? “The apparent change in the frequency due to relative motion between source and observer is known as Doppler effect.” When a listener is in motion toward a stationary source of the sound, the pitch (frequency) of…

• ## What are some Examples of Resonance in Physics?

Resonance occurs when the frequency of the applied force is equal to one of the natural frequencies of vibration of the forced or driven harmonic oscillator. Swing, Guitar, Pendulum, Bridge, and Music systems are a few examples of resonance in…

• ## Difference between Sound and noise in tabular form

The Difference Between noise is given here. Sound is any phenomenon in which the propagation of mechanical waves through a fluid that generates the vibratory movement of a body occurs, while noise is a generally unpleasant auditory sensation and is…

• ## Sound intensity level with examples

“Sound energy passing per second through a unit area held perpendicular to the direction of propagation of sound waves is called intensity of sound.”The sound waves transfer energy from the sounding body to the listener. The intensity of sound depends…
