A ping pong ball is held with a string and placed near a loudspeaker as shown

in Figure 2

The loudspeaker emits a low frequenc y sound and the ping-pong ball seems to

vibrate to it.

• (a) Explain how the sound from the loudspeaker produces vibration on the ping pong ball.

JPN Pahang Teacher ’s Guide

Physics Module Form 5 Chapter 6:Wave

The vibration of the loudspeaker moves the air molecules around it.

The sound wave produced by the loudspeaker transfers energy to the ping

pong ball and causes it to move

• (b) What will happen to the vibration of the ping pong ball if the loudness emits

• (i) a louder sound?

The ping pong ball vibrates with greater amplitude

(ii) a sound with a higher pitch?

The ping pong ball vibrates with higher frequency.

• (c) If the frequenc y of the sound is 50 Hz, calculate the wavelength of the sound produced. [Assume the speed of the sound in air in 350 ms -1 ]

 (ii) Which of the two sets will show a bigger effect of diffraction. Explain your answer. The set shown in Figure 4.1 will show a bigger effect of diffraction. This is because the narrower the gap, the more the waves spread out. (iii) Redraw and complete Figure 3.1 and Figure 3.2 to show the between the two diffraction patterns.

(ii)

Observe Figure 3.2(a) and (b). Compare the waves patterns and the wavelength of

the waves before and after they pass through the gaps.

Relate the size of the gaps, the waves patterns and the wavelengths to deduce a

relevant physics concept.

[5 marks]

• a. In figure 3.1(a), size of the wavelength is the same as size of the gap // In figure 3.1(b), size of the gap is wider than size of the wavelength

• b. In figure 3.1(a) and figure 3.1(b), size of the wavelengths are the same before and after they pass through the gaps.

• c. The waves emerging from the narrow gap in figure 3.1(a) is circular wavefronts

• d. The waves emerging from the wider gap is plane wavefronts

• e. When a wave passes through a gap, the wave spreads. The narrower the gap the greater the spreading of the wave

• (c) Figure 1.3 shows the seashore of a fishing village. During the rain y season, waves

are big. One year the waves eroded the seashore, caused the jetty to collapse and

damaged the fishermen’s boats. Figure 3.3

To prevent similar damage in the future, the fishermen suggest building retaining walls

and relocating the jetty.

Make further suggestion of wa ys to help the fishermen solve their problems.

You should use your knowledge of reflection, refraction and diffraction of waves to

explain these suggestions, to include the following aspects.

• (i) the design and structure of the retaining wall,

 (ii) the location of the new jetty (iii) the size or energ y of the waves [10 marks] Answer:
• 1. Build slanting barrier to reduce speed of wave

• 2. Build the rough barrier to reduce reflection of the waves

• 3. Build the new jetty at the bay because the water is calm at the bay

• 4. Build the small opening surround the bay because diffraction happens at the opening

• 5. Build the barrier at the bay because the wave is spread according to the shape of the bay
