1. A stone is dropped from a 50 m tall building into a pond. When is sound of splash heard at the top? (g=10m/s2
, speed of sound in air= 340m/s)?
2. Define one hertz?
3. Audible frequency range of a human ear is 20 hertz to 20000hertz. Express it in terms of time period?
4. Derive the relationship between wavelength, frequency and speed of sound?
5. Define wavelength?
6. Draw a graph showing density and pressure variations with respect to distance for a disturbance produced by sound wave? Mark the position of compression and rarefaction on this curve/graph. Name the regions of maximum and minimum change in pressure respectively?
7. Which characteristic of the sound helps you to identify your friend by his voice while sitting with others in a darkroom?
8. Explain with the help of bell jar experiment that sound cannot travel in vaccum?
9. What is a transverse wave?
10. A radar signal is received 2*10-5
sec. After it was sent and reflected by an aeroplane. How far is the aeroplane if speed of waves is 3*108
11. Give two practical applications of reflection of sound waves?
12. Briefly mention three uses of ultrasound in the field of medicine?
13. Distinguish between transverse waves and longitudinal waves?

c) Velocity of the wave?
21. A wave is moving in air with a velocity of 340m/s. Calculate the wavelength if its frequency is 512Hz?.
22. Find the distance of cloud from you when you hear a thunder 3 sec after the lightning is seen. (given the speed of light= 3*108
m/s, speed of sound= 330m/s)? Why is lightning seen a few seconds before the thunder is heard during a thunderstorm?
