When sound waves superimpose they can interfere?
Constructive interference is when two waves superimpose and the resulting wave has a higher amplitude than the previous waves.
Destructive interference is when two waves superimpose and cancel each other out, leading to a lower amplitude.
What kind of waves can exhibit interference?
All kind of waves (e.g., sound, light, water, etc.) exhibit interference. Distinguish between constructive interference and destructive interference. Constructive interference between two waves occurs when they travel in phase.
In which one of the following does sound travel the fastest?
Sound travels fastest through solids. This is because molecules in a solid medium are much closer together than those in a liquid or gas, allowing sound waves to travel more quickly through it. In fact, sound waves travel over 17 times faster through steel than through air.
Which equation is correct for wave speed?
Wave speed is the distance a wave travels in a given amount of time, such as the number of meters it travels per second. Wave speed is related to wavelength and wave frequency by the equation: Speed = Wavelength x Frequency. This equation can be used to calculate wave speed when wavelength and frequency are known.
