School Physics Notes: SOUND WAVES: Index of notes
Properties of, and experiments with, Sound Waves
including reflection, refraction and diffraction of sound waves, ultrasound uses and infrasound earthquake waves - characteristics explained with diagrams, uses of sound waves
This section will answer many questions e.g. Why is sound a longitudinal wave? Why can't sound travel through a vacuum? Know that and understand that sound waves and some mechanical waves are longitudinal, and cannot travel through a vacuum. Describe an experiment to measure the speed of sound. What are the uses of ultrasound? Why can some earthquake waves be the same as sound waves?
