The human tympanum is displaced by sound waves. This displacement is linked to the acting force by the equation:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

F = 4x

where x is the displacement in meters.

A wave of frequency 1000 Hz provoques a displacement of 1.5 x 10^-5 m. Prove that the energy given to the tympanum is given in 0.25*10^-3 s. Also find the average power of the wave.

I don't how power is linked to frequency and energy in therms of waves...
