For sound waves, what's the phase and group velocity? Give numerical values.
Phase velocity :
The wave propagates with the velocity of the points that have the same phase position in space.
Phase velocity can be given as :
Cph= . = /K
The phase velocity ( speed of sound) of sound waves is : 331 m/s in air
Group velocity :
Group velocity is defined by the equation :
vg = /k
If is directly proportional to k , then group velocity would be equal to the phase velocity
