Relative Wavelengths

Relative Wavelengths

Distance measured along line of propagation, between two points that are in phase on adjacent waves. (Anderson, Philip C.; The Spectral Energy Value System; Applied Spectroscopy, Vol. 29, #1, 1975.)

To ascertain the wavelength of any given sound - divide the velocity of sound by its vibration number?.

The wavelength of any given sound, increases with the temperature.

The temperature remaining constant, the length of the sound wave determines the pitch of the sound produced. (Harris, T. F.; Hand Book of Acoustics, 5th edition; J. Curwen & Sons, London, 1903?)

The range of musical pitch is from about 40 to 4,000 vibrations per second

The length in space of one complete cycle of sound wave.

A = speed of sound/frequency = c/f

where A = wavelength in ft or m.

Wavelength can be calculated from the following equation:

Wavelength (meters) = Velocity 300,000,000 (meters/sec) / Frequency (cycles/sec)

If we substitute 1.5 MHz for the frequency as shown, then

200 meters = 300,000,000 / 1,500,000
