QUESTION: 1

The method of detecting the presence, position and direction of motion of distant objects by reflecting a beam of sound waves is known as _____. 

Solution:
QUESTION: 2

The minimum distance between the source and the reflector, so that an echo is heard is approximately equal to ______. 

Solution:
QUESTION: 3

Which of the following will remain unchanged when a sound wave travels in air or in water?

Solution:
QUESTION: 4
 If a vibrator strikes the water 10 times in one second, then the frequency of wave is _________.  
Solution:
The amount of wave cycles a second is equivalent to the Frequency. There are ten wave cycles is one second.
The unit of frequency is now Hz.
1 vibration=1 hz,then 
10 vibrations=1*10 
=10Hz is the solution.

QUESTION: 5
SI Unit of time period is __________. 
Solution:
QUESTION: 6
Sound and light waves both :
Solution:
QUESTION: 7
The time period of a vibrating body is 0.05 s. The frequency of waves it emits is?
Solution: Frequency = 1/time period
frequency (nu) = 1/0.05
multiply 1 and 0.05 by 100 to take out the decimal .
you will get 100/ 5= 20 .
i.e frequency = 20 Hz
QUESTION: 8
Which of the following quantities is transferred during wave propagation?
Solution:
QUESTION: 9

Unit of wavelength is __________. 

Solution:
QUESTION: 10
When a wave travels through a medium ______.
Solution:
QUESTION: 11
The amplitude of a wave is ______. 
Solution:
QUESTION: 12
The unit of quantity on which pitch of the sound depends is :
Solution: It is because  pitch is that characteristic of sound that depends on the frequency received by a human ear.
and as we know that the S.I. unit of frequency is hertz therefore the unit of quantity on which pitch of the sound depends is hertz. 
QUESTION: 13
The persistence of audible sound due to the successive reflections from the surrounding objects even after the source has stopped to produce that sound is called _________. 
Solution:
QUESTION: 14
Sound waves do not travel through?
Solution:
QUESTION: 15
What is the velocity of sound in water at room temperature?
Solution: The temperature of water is greater than the air, in room temp. and the sound travels faster in high temp. therefore the velocity of sound in water is 1500 and in air is 340
QUESTION: 16
The vibrations or the pressure variations inside the inner ear are converted into electrical signals by the_________. 
Solution:
QUESTION: 17
Which of the following is not a characteristic of a musical sound?
Solution:
QUESTION: 18
The technique used by bats to find their way or to locate food is _______. 
Solution:
QUESTION: 19
The frequency of a wave travelling at a speed of 500 ms-1 is 25 Hz. Its time period will be ______. 
Solution:
QUESTION: 20
Bats detect the obstacles in their path by receiving the reflected ______. 
Solution:
QUESTION: 21
The speed of sound in medium depends upon?
Solution:
QUESTION: 22
Vibrations inside the ear are amplified by the three bones namely the _________ in the middle ear. 
Solution:
QUESTION: 23
A source of frequency of 500 Hz emits waves of wavelength 0.4 m, how long does the waves take to travel 600 m? 
Solution:
 
QUESTION: 24
The physical quantity, which oscillates in most waves, is?
Solution:
QUESTION: 25
When sound travels through air, the air particles ______. 
Solution:
QUESTION: 26
The frequency which is not audible to the human ear is :
Solution:
QUESTION: 27
 A sound source sends waves of 400 Hz. It produces waves of wavelength 2.5 m. The velocity of sound waves is :
Solution:
QUESTION: 28
An example for mechanical wave. 
Solution: A mechanical wave is a wave that is not capable of transmitting its energy through a vacuum. Mechanical waves require a medium in order to transport their energy from one location to another. A sound wave is an example of a mechanical wave. Sound wavesare incapable of traveling through a vacuum.
QUESTION: 29

An ultrasonic wave is sent from a ship towards the bottom of the sea. It is found that the time interval between the sending and receiving of the wave is 1.6 s. What is the depth of the sea, if the velocity of sound in the seawater is 1400 m/s?

Solution:
Total distance travelled by the ultrasonic waves=velocity of the ultrasonic waves*Total time taken by the ultrasonic waves 
Therefore, 
2*Depth of the sea=1400m/s*1.6s 
Depth of sea=1120m
    QUESTION: 30
    Sound waves are :
    Solution:
