Problem 23E

The amplitude of a transverse wave in a stretched string is the maximum displacement of the string from its equilibrium position. What does the amplitude of a longitudinal sound wave in air correspond to?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 23E For a transverse wave,such as the wave on a plucked string,amplitude is measured by the maximum displacement of any point on the string from its position when the string is at rest. The amplitude of a longitudinal sound wave in air corresponds to the over pressure of the compression or equivalently the under pressure of the rarefaction.
