Question

An ultrasound machine in a hospital uses a sound source at 19.00000MHz.

- [3 marks] Assuming that the speed of the ultrasound in the body is same as water (1440 m/s), determine the wavelength in the body.
- [6 marks] If blood cells are moving towards the sound source at a speed of 0.8 m/s, at what frequency do the crests of the sound wave pass through the blood cell?
- [5 marks] What is the frequency of the sound waves reflected back towards the source by the blood cells?
- [6 marks]
- If the sound level intensity is 17.0 dB at a point
*d*_{1}= 6.8 cm from the source, what is the sound intensity at that point in W/m^{2}. (We can assume that 0 dB is referenced to 10^{-12}W/m^{2}). - Assume that sound is emitted from a point source, so that the
intensity decreases quadratically with distance. What is the
intensity level in dB at a point
*d*_{2}= 2.0cm from the source?

- If the sound level intensity is 17.0 dB at a point

Answer #1

An ultrasound machine in a hospital uses a sound source at
5.10000MHz.
Assuming that the speed of the ultrasound in the body is same
as water (1440 m/s), determine the wavelength in the body.
If blood cells are moving towards the sound source at a speed
of 0.8 m/s, at what frequency do the crests of the sound wave pass
through the blood cell?
What is the frequency of the sound waves reflected back towards
the source by the blood...

The sound intensity level of 0 dB is defined as the threshold
for hearing value of I0 = 10-12 W/m2.
a) What is the sound intensity (in W.m-2) for a sound level of 46
dB?
b) The intensity of sound emitted from a point source decreases
with the square of the distance according I2 = I1.(d1/d2)2. Given
that the sound level intensity of 46 dB is obtained at a point d1 =
6.8 cm from a source, at what distance...

Doppler ultrasound is used to measure the speed of blood flow.
The reflected sound interferes with the emitted sound, producing
beats. If the speed of red blood cells is 0.100 m/s, the ultrasound
frequency used is 3.80 MHz, and the speed of sound in blood is 1570
m/s, what is the beat frequency? If the speed of the red blood
cells is v, the speed of sound in blood is u, the
ultrasound source emits waves of frequency f, and...

A submarine uses sonar (sound pulses) to locate objects. The sub
radiates the sound like a point source in all directions at a power
of 700 W and there are no losses. (give units in all answers)
a) What is the sound intensity impinging on an object at a 150 m
distance? Answer: 2.476 mW/m2
b) What is the ‘sound intensity level’ measured at a distance of
150 m? Answer: 93.94 dB
c) The sub reflects power like a flat...

cello plays a note of frequency 196 Hz and the other plays a note
of frequency 220 Hz. What is the period of the beat?
0.4 s
4 s
0.25 s
0.1 s

An electronic point source emits sound isotropically at a
frequency of 3 × 103 Hz and a power of 34 watts. A small microphone

A source of sound is located in a room a distance “L” from a
wall. The room temperature is 72°F. AN observer is located between
the source and the wall at 103 cm from the wall. The observer can
hear a loud sound at the 3rd harmonic and the sound
fades at the 4th harmonic.
What is the velocity of sound in the room?
What is the frequency at which the observer can hear the...
