Example text

E. 25 Interference at a point due to two loudspeakers. The second frequency will occur at 3 times the first and so can be given by: f3λ/2 = 3 × fλ/2 = 3 × 717 Hz = 2150 Hz The frequency at which the first constructive interference happens will occur at 2 times the frequency of the first destructive interference which will be: fλ = 2 × fλ/2 = 2 × 717 Hz = 1434 Hz If the listener moved closer to the centre line of the speakers then the relative delays would reduce and the frequencies at which destructive interference occurs would get higher.

30. This happens because the energy in the travelling wave must always exist at a pressure node carried in the velocity component and at a velocity node the energy is carried in the pressure component. 8 Standing waves at other boundaries There are two other pairs of boundary arrangements which can support standing waves. 32, is the case of a bounded to unbounded boundary at both ends. An example would be a tube or pipe which is open at both ends. 32. 31 The pressure components of a standing wave between two bound–unbound boundaries.

8 Addition of correlated sources. 9 Addition of uncorrelated sources. Uncorrelated reflection due to long delay Uncorrelated multiple sources wave is different it appears to be unrelated to the original source and so is uncorrelated with it. 9 shows two possibilities. 1 The level when correlated sounds add Sound levels add together differently depending on whether they are correlated or uncorrelated. 13. Ptotal correlated (t) = P1(t) + P2(t) + ... 13) 21 ch01 13/11/00 11:45 am Page 22 Introduction to sound Note that the correlated waves are all at the same frequency, and so always stay in the same time relationship to each other, and this results in a composite pressure variation at the combination point which is also a function of time.
