316. Sound Waves – The Mechanics of Particles

Description

This Physics Factsheet:

  • Describes the motion of the particles in sound waves in terms of mechanics.
  • Describes the main wave properties of reflection, refraction, diffraction and superposition in terms of the mechanical motion of the particles.
  • Demonstrates how to answer worded questions on the motion and properties of sound waves in relation to mechanical motion.
  • Provides some typical questions that students may be faced with that are designed to help them understand the relationship between Newtonian physics and wave mechanics.
