Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Beth on Saturday, July 21, 2012 at 8:59pm.

As Section 27.5 discusses, sound waves diffract or bend around the edges of a doorway. Larger wavelengths diffract more than smaller wavelengths. (a) The speed of sound is 343 m/s. With what speed would a 57.0 kg person have to move through a doorway to diffract to the same extent as a 146 Hz bass tone? (b) At the speed calculated in part (a), how long in years (365.25 days) would it take the person to move a distance of one meter?
