An aluminum rod 1.60 m long is held at its center. It is strOked with a rosin-coated cloth to set up a longitudinal vibration. The speed of sound ina thin rod of aluminum is 5100 m/s. (a) What is the fundamental frequency of the waves established in the rod? (b) What harmonics are set up in the rod held in this manner? (c) What would be the fundamental frequency if the rod were copper, in which the speed of sound is 3560 m/s?

We are given following data for an aluminum rod held at its center:
L=1.6m
v a l = 5100 m s
A) Calculating the fundamental frequency:
f = v a l 2 L = 5100 2 1.6 = 1594 H z
B) Odd harmonics only are set up in the rod because the rod is fixed at its center.
C) Calculating the fundamental frequency if rod is made of copper, v c = 3560 m s :
f = v c 2 L = 3650 2 1.6 = 1113 H z
Result:
A) f=1594Hz
B) Odd harmonics only are set up in the rod becaUse the rod is fixed at its center.
C)f=1113Hz

Select and record the correct responses to complete the following statements. You have learned that the frequency of sound waves reaching a stationary observer will change depending on whether the source of the sound is approaching or receding. Suppose an ambulance is approaching and then passes you and drives away without changing speed. As an ambulance approaches, the sound waves (expand, compress), resulting in a (higher, lower)-frequency wave. As the ambulance passes, the pitch (increases to a higher frequency, drops to a lower frequency).
