Hello,

Thank you for reaching out for help with your assignment on traveling waves. I am happy to assist you with solving questions 20-23 and 33, as well as verifying your solutions for questions 25-31.

Question 20:

To solve this question, we need to use the relationship between the amplitude and wavelength of a wave. The equation is given by:

λ = 2π/k

where λ is the wavelength and k is the wave number. We know that the wave number is given by:

k = 2π/λ

Substituting in the given values, we get:

k = 2π/0.05 = 40π

Therefore, the wave number is 40π and the wavelength is 0.05 m.

Question 21:

To solve this question, we need to use the relationship between the frequency and period of a wave. The equation is given by:

f = 1/T

where f is the frequency and T is the period. We know that the period is given by:

T = 1/f

Substituting in the given values, we get:

T = 1/20 = 0.05 seconds

Therefore, the period is 0.05 seconds and the frequency is 20 Hz.

Question 22:

To solve this question, we need to use the relationship between the velocity, frequency, and wavelength of a wave. The equation is given by:

v = λf

where v is the velocity, λ is the wavelength, and f is the frequency. We know that the velocity is given by:

v = 300 m/s

Substituting in the given values, we get:

300 = λ*20

Therefore, the wavelength is 15 m.

Question 23:

To solve this question, we need to use the equation for the phase constant, which is given by:

θ = wt

where θ is the phase constant, w is the angular frequency, and t is the time. We know that the angular frequency is given by:

w = 2πf

Substituting in the given values, we get:

w = 2π*20 = 40π

Therefore, the phase constant is 40π radians.

Question 33:

To solve this question, we need to use the equation for the phase constant, which is given by:

θ = wt

where θ is the phase constant, w is the angular

## What is a sinusoidal wave?

A sinusoidal wave is a type of wave that has a repeating pattern with a constant amplitude and frequency. It is characterized by a smooth, curving shape and can be seen in various natural phenomena such as sound waves, ocean waves, and electromagnetic waves.

## How is the intensity of a sinusoidal wave measured?

The intensity of a sinusoidal wave is measured in decibels (dB) and is a measure of the amount of energy that is being transferred through the wave. It is calculated by taking the logarithm of the ratio of the power of the wave to a reference power level. The higher the intensity, the louder or brighter the wave will appear.

## What factors affect the intensity of a sinusoidal wave?

The intensity of a sinusoidal wave can be affected by several factors, including the amplitude of the wave, the distance from the source of the wave, and the medium through which the wave is traveling. In general, the larger the amplitude and the shorter the distance, the higher the intensity will be. The medium through which the wave travels can also affect its intensity, as different materials absorb or reflect waves differently.

## How does the intensity of a sinusoidal wave change with distance?

As a sinusoidal wave travels through a medium, its intensity will decrease with distance from the source. This is due to the spreading out of the wave energy as it moves further away from its origin. The decrease in intensity is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the source, meaning that as the distance doubles, the intensity decreases by a factor of four.

## Can the intensity of a sinusoidal wave be increased?

Yes, the intensity of a sinusoidal wave can be increased by increasing the amplitude of the wave, decreasing the distance from the source, or by using a medium that is better at transmitting the wave energy. In certain cases, multiple waves can also combine to produce a higher intensity wave through a process called interference.
