Clap your hands and estimate the energy and power released as sound waves.

I know Kinetic energy= 1/2*m*v^2
and Power is KE/t

but how do I find the velocity of the sound wave made from clapping my hands?
and for the mass do I use the mass of my hands?

  • Physics - ,

    Estimate the energy in your moving hands and assume it all goes to sound energy.
    m = mass of one hand
    v = speed of one hand
    energy = 2 (1/2) m v^2
