Sound intensity on a "flat earth" 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Consider a flat Earth with an atmosphere that descreases in density as altitude increases such that rho = rho0e-h/H where rho nought is the density of air at zero altitude and H is a constant known as the "scale height". Assume the bulk modulus of air is constant. a)Show that the intensity of a soundwave of constant wavelenght will increase with altitude (assume velocity changes due to a change in frequency only). b) Show that the intensity of a soundwave of constant frequency will decrease with altitude (Assume velocity changes due to a change in wavelenght only). c) Show that the ratio of the dreivatives is given by: (dI/dh) lamda constant / (dI/dh) freq. constant = -eh/H 2. Relevant equations I = .5p v w^2 S^2 p = rho w = omega 3. The attempt at a solution I've been breaking my head trying to do this. The only thing i can think of is to get all the wanted variables into the equation: I = .5p (lambda/time) (2pi f)^2 S^2 but then how do I go from there? I have the feeling that I have to do partial dv/dlambda and partial dv/dfreq. but I dont know how and where to insert them and use them. ty.
