bioacoustics biology + acoustics. how animals produce sound, how it is disbursed and how it is detected. sound dispersion sound waves separating into its component frequencies as it passes through a material vibration a type of motion, an oscillatory motion oscillatory motion a movement first in one direction and then back again in the opposite direction motion displacement over time displacement how far (amount) you can displace and the direction newtons first law "an object at rest tends to stay at rest and an object in motion tends to stay in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force" what is an example of an unbalanced force friction, it makes objects stop newtons second law "the acceleration of an object is dependent on 2 variables: the net force acting upon the object and the mass of the object" intertia an object at rest will stay at rest and vice versa, an object with more mass is harder to move. the amount of inertia is directly related to the mass an object has mass large body of matter with no distinct shape elasticity to want to return to its original shape, it is associated with whatever medium structure it is made out of an example of elasticity a spring stiffness usually applies to a larger structure net force the overall force acting on an object balanced force two forces acting in opposite directions on an object and are equal in size unbalanced force forces that cause a change in the motion of an object restoring force of a pendulum when it swings back to the top of its arch, gravity is a restoring force contact forces frictional force, tension force, normal force, air resistant force, applied force, spring force at-a-distance forces gravitational force, electrical force, magnetic force substrate borne vibration animals use their body parts to vibrate something to send vibrations as a way of communication what do substrate borne vibrations pass through a medium footdrumming kangaroo rats stop around to scare off predators tymbals percussion organs found in many insects cicada have what kind of organs specialized organs for drumming stridulation rubbing body parts together to produce friction resulting in intermolecular attraction stick slip vibrations self sustained oscillations introduced by dry friction crickets using stridulation rubbing body parts, use a "file" and a "scraper" to produce stick-slip vibrations aerodynamic whistle the airstream isn't completely blocked examples of aerodynamic whistles tea kettle, whistle languages, birds airstream obstruction produced by creating negative pressure with the tongue pressed against the palate or teeth transient a sudden onset and offset of sound examples of airstream obstruction click languages, voicing bone conduction a solid, vibrating the bones of the skull to achieve a sound perception wave motion particle motion is perpendicular to wave motion transverse when particle motion is perpendicular to wave motion longitudinal when particles of the medium move parallel to wave rarefraction decreased particle density compression increased particle density simple harmonic motion a simple vibratory motion, a repeating cycle is the movement in simple harmonic motion random? no example of simple harmonic motion a pendulum rectilinear motion mass & spring, moving back and forth in a line uniform circular motion "ferris wheel" frequency the number of cycles per second, measured in Hz. one second = one Hz period time(seconds)/number(cycles) magnitude an amount or quantity of something peak amplitude the maximum magnitude peak-to-peak amplitude the range of magnitudes changes within one period absolute phase the equilibrium position of an object in simple vibratory motion is defined as a 0 degree phase relative phase the difference between the phases of two periodic waveforms as they cycle through time resonance when an object vibrates at its natural frequency where does vibration start from a point of eqiulibrium bernoulli effect given a constant volume of air or fluid, at a point of constriction there will be an increase in the velocity of the flow and a decrease in air pressure perpendicular to the flow example of complex vibration vocal folds wave length the top of one wave to the top of another dipole it moves in 2 directions an example of a dipole a tuning fork period the length of time of a cycle what is amplitude correlated to loudness what is frequency correlated to pitch what can be graphed as a sine wave anything that can move as a line in phase when two waveforms have the same frequency and the same phase. amplitude is the only difference out of phase two waveforms have the same frequency but the phase is not the same different starting places frequency formula (F)=Cycles/Time period formula (P)=Time/Cycles formula if you have P F=1/P formula if you have F P=1/F what gives you a more accurate number using more cycles can circular motion be graphed as a sine wave? yes
