- Determine which of the following must change when pitch gets higher: amplitude or frequency or wavelength or intensity or speed of the sound waves?
- What does frequency determine for sound waves?
- If a sound has a fundamental frequency of 100Hz. What is the frequency of the first 5 harmonics of this tone?
- If a violin and a flute each play 256 Hz tones. Which wave has the longer wavelength?
- How do beats help determine whether two sound waves are of the same frequency?
- What kind of waves are sound waves; standing waves, surface waves, transverse waves, or longitudinal waves?
- Do sound waves travel through compression waves or longitudinal waves?
