Flashcards on Sound

Click on the flashcard to see the answer


What is sound?

Sound is a type of energy made by vibrations. These vibrations create waves that travel through the air and other materials.

How does sound travel?

Sound travels in the form of waves. These waves move through the air or other mediums, such as water or solids.

What are the properties of sound?

The properties of sound include pitch, volume, and timbre. Pitch refers to how high or low a sound is, volume refers to how loud or soft a sound is, and timbre refers to the quality or tone of a sound.

What is the speed of sound?

The speed of sound is approximately 343 meters per second in dry air at room temperature. However, the speed can vary depending on the medium through which it is traveling.

What is the Doppler effect?

The Doppler effect is the change in frequency or pitch of a sound wave observed when the source of the sound is moving relative to the observer. It is commonly experienced when a siren or a car passes by.

What is the difference between sound and noise?

Sound refers to any audible vibrations that can be perceived by the human ear, while noise refers to unwanted or unpleasant sounds that can be distracting or annoying.

What is an echo?

An echo is a reflection of sound waves off a surface, resulting in the repetition of the sound. It occurs when the original sound waves bounce off a surface and travel back towards the source.

What is resonance?

Resonance is the phenomenon that occurs when an object or system is subjected to vibrations at its natural frequency, resulting in a dramatic increase in amplitude. It can produce a loud and sustained sound.

How do we hear sound?

We hear sound when sound waves enter our ears and vibrate the eardrum. The vibrations are then transmitted through the ear bones to the cochlea, where they are converted into electrical signals and sent to the brain for interpretation.

What is the difference between sound and light?

Sound is a type of mechanical wave that requires a medium, such as air, water, or solids, to travel through. Light, on the other hand, is a form of electromagnetic radiation and can travel through a vacuum.

How can sound be amplified?

Sound can be amplified by using devices such as speakers or amplifiers. These devices increase the amplitude of the sound waves, making them louder.

What is the frequency of sound?

The frequency of sound refers to the number of vibrations or cycles of a sound wave that occur in one second. It is measured in Hertz (Hz).

What is the unit of sound intensity?

The unit of sound intensity is the decibel (dB). It measures the power or intensity of a sound wave relative to a reference level.

What is the difference between a sound wave and a light wave?

A sound wave is a mechanical wave that requires a medium to travel through, while a light wave is an electromagnetic wave that can travel through a vacuum.

What is the role of the ear in hearing?

The ear plays a crucial role in the process of hearing. It collects sound waves from the environment and converts them into electrical signals that can be interpreted by the brain.

What is the difference between a sound wave and a seismic wave?

A sound wave is a mechanical wave that travels through the air or other mediums, while a seismic wave is a type of wave that is generated by earthquakes or other seismic events and travels through the Earth's interior.
