Suppose waves with different amplitudes are produced by a vibrating object. How do the frequencies of the waves with different amplitudes compare?
Answer & Explanation
We will consider that a wave is a repeating disturbance or movement that transfers energy through matter or space in this physical situation. As we know the sound can be considered as a mechanical wave that travels through a medium only. So, the sound can't travel through space. Also, we know that sound travel through the medium of air. Therefore, the frequency of the wave is given by
So, the speed of the sound wave can be represented by the following relation
Where, v is the speed of the wave, f is the wave's frequency, and is the wavelength of the wave.
As we know the amplitude of the wave isn't depending on the frequency of the same wave. There's no relation between the frequency and the amplitude of the wave. So, the frequencies of the waves with different amplitudes can't be compared.
