Solve up to 5 problems. Submit your answers and solutions on Tuesday, May 3 in the class. No

delayed submission will be accepted.

1. Sound waves are produced by a point source. Smart students from BMCC decide to measure the

intensity of the sound waves at a distance 200 m from the sound source. They measure that the

intensity is 100 dB. Now they want to find a location where a person can tolerate the sound intensity

of 80 dB. Find the distance to that point from the sound source in m. (1 point)

2. While standing at a point on the roadside shoulder, a police car chasing a speeder was approaching

you. At that moment you hear the siren of the police car at a frequency of 560 Hz. When the police

car passes, the frequency of the siren changes to 480 Hz. What was the speed of the police car in m/s

if you assume that the speed of sound is 360 m/s? (1 point)

3. You approach with a vibrating tuning fork above a resonating tube (one end closed) that is filled with

water at a certain level. The tuning fork resonates when a height of air column is 0.150 m and again

0.450 m. What is the frequency in Hz of the fork when the speed of sound is taken to be 340 m/s? (1

point)

4. You are performing an experiment on waves on a copper wire that is taut with fixed ends under

appropriate tension of 1,260 N. If the diameter of the wire is 1.50 mm and its density is 8.93 g/cm3,

what is the speed of the waves traveling on the wire in m/s? (1 point)

5. A string of length L = 2.0 m is held with both ends fixed. Now it is vibrating with a frequency 120 Hz

by an external source, and the vibration creates a standing wave with three nodes including the both

ends. What is the natural fundamental frequency of the string in Hz? (1 point)
