1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data If you hear music in the distance, would you be more likely to hear the treble or the bass notes of the music? Using your knowledge of diffraction, explain your answer. 2. The attempt at a solution So I found that the bass's waves are carried at a longer distance than the treble ones and can pass through doorways or small openings at a greater distance than that of the treble since their frequency is not affected a lot by diffraction. Thus, the wavelength of the bass carries a longer distance than that of the treble but is it only because of the frequency?
