Problem 19Q

Wien a sinusoidal wave crosses the boundary between two sections of cord as in Fig. 1 34, the frequency does not change (although the wavelength and velocity do change). Explain why.

Solution 19Q

1 of 2

What causes a wave? Take the example of a cord. You move it up and down 10 times a second. The particles in the cord near your hand move up and down 10 times a second and transfer the energy to the next particle. This particle also moves up and down at the same frequency but reduced energy and so on.

2 of 2

In the figure when a wave arrives at the junction the particles on this side of the junction impart energy to the particles on the other side at the same frequency because they are getting it at the same frequency. After the junction due to change in material properties the speed and wavelength change.
