 Exam Questions NCERT Class 9 Science Chapter 12 Sound

Question. Do waves transport matter?
Ans : No.

Question. Sound is produced due to a vibratory motion, then why a vibrating pendulum does not produce sound?
Ans : The frequency of the vibrating pendulum does not lie within the audible range (20 Hz to 20,000 Hz) and hence, it does not produce audible sound.

Question. Why do echoes produced in an empty auditorium usually decrease when it is full of audience?
Ans : When the hall is empty there are no obstacles in between to reflect the sound other than the walls.
When the hall is full of audiences, the sound produced undergoes multiple reflections from the people and so it overlaps with the sound produced. Hence, the listener is not able to distinguish between the original sound and the echo.

Question. What is a wave?
Ans : A wave is a disturbance that travels in a medium due to repeated periodic motion of particles about their mean position – such that the disturbance is handed over from one particle to the other without the actual motion of the medium.

Question. What is a transverse wave?
Ans : It is a wave in which the particles of the medium vibrate perpendicular to the direction of propagation of the wave.

Question. What is a longitudinal wave?
Ans : It is a wave in which the particles of the medium vibrate in the direction of propagation of the wave.

Question. What do you understand by the term ultrasonic vibrations?
Ans : Sounds of frequency higher than 20,000 Hz are called the ultrasonics.

Question. What do you understand by the term echo?
Ans : The sound heard after reflection from a rigid obstacle is called an echo.

Question. Do the particles of the medium move from one place to another in a medium?
Ans : No.

Question. Does the velocity of wave motion depend on the nature of the medium?
Ans : Yes.

Question. Does the velocity of wave motion depend on the nature or motion of the source?
Ans : No.

Question. What are transverse waves? Give two examples.
Ans : A wave in which the particles of the medium vibrate up and down at right angle to the direction in which the wave is moving.
Example : (i) The waves produced by moving one end of a long spring up and down rapidly.
(ii) Ripples formed on the surface of water in a pond.

Question. What are crests and troughs of a wave?
Ans : The elevation in a transverse wave is called crest. It is that part of transverse wave which s above the line of zero disturbance of the medium. The depression in a transverse wave is called trough. It is that part of the transverse wave which is below the line of zero disturbances.

Question. A Sitarist tries to adjust the tension and pluck the string suitably, before playing the orchestra in a musical concert. By doing so what is he adjusting?
Ans : He is adjusting frequency if the sitar string with the frequency of the other musical instrument.

Question. If the tension in the wire is increased four times, how will the velocity of wave in a string varies?
Ans : Velocity of the wave in string is directly proportional to the square root of the tension thus if tension is increased 4 times, the velocity will be doubled.

Question. Explain, how is the principle of echo used by the dolphin to locate small fish as its prey?
Ans : Dolphins are aquatic animals which send out ultrasonic sound to communicate with each other. They have a sound sensing system which enables them to find animals underwater with great accuracy due to the echo of the ultrasonic sound produced by them.

Question. Give two practical applications of the reflection of sound waves.
Ans : (i) In stethoscope the sound of patient’s heartbeat reaches the doctor’s ears by multiple reflections in the tubes.
(ii) Megaphones are designed to send sound waves in particular direction are based on the reflection of sound

Question. What is the other name of a long flexible spring?
Ans : Slinky is the other name of a long flexible spring.

Question. Distinguish between tone and note.
Ans : A pitch is a particular frequency of sound, for example : 440 Hz.
A note is a named pitch. For example : Western music generally refers to the 440 Hz pitch as A, specifically A4.

Question. How do you account for the fact that two strings can be used to give notes of the same pitch and loudness but of different quality?
Ans : The ‘quality’ of a given note is determined by the overall effect of the harmonics present in it. The harmonics are multiples of the fundamental or basic frequency of the ‘note’. Depending on the conditions under which vibrations are taking place, sometimes we get one set of harmonics and sometimes another set.
The quality of the two notes will, therefore, different even though their fundamental frequencies may be the same.

Question. Can you produce both types of waves (i.e., longitudinal and transverse) on a slinky?
Ans : Yes, we can produce both types of waves (i.e., longitudinal and transverse) on a slinky.
