A speaker is placed at the opening of a long horizontal tube. The speaker oscillates at a frequency of f , creating a sound wave that moves down the tube. The wave moves through the tube at a speed of v = 340.00 m/s . The sound wave is modeled with the wave function s ( x , t ) = s max cos ( k x ω t + ϕ ) . At time t = 0.00 s , an air molecule at x = 2.3 m is at the maximum displacement of 6.34 nm. At the same time, another molecule at x = 2.7 m has a displacement of 2.30 nm. What is the wave function of the sound wave, that is, find the wave number, angular frequency, and the initial phase shift?

s 1 = 6.34 nm s 2 = 2.30 nm k x 1 + ϕ = 0 rad k x 2 + ϕ = 1.20 rad k ( x 2 x 1 ) = 1.20 rad k = 3.00 m −1 ω = 1019.62 s −1 s 1 = s max cos ( k x 1 ϕ ) ϕ = 5.66 rad s ( x , t ) = 6.30 nm cos ( 3.00 m −1 x 1019.62 s −1 t + 5.66 )

A tube filled with water has a valve at the bottom to allow the water to flow out of the tube. As the water is emptied from the tube, the length L of the air column changes. A 1024-Hz tuning fork is placed at the opening of the tube. Water is removed from the tube until the n = 5 mode of a sound wave resonates. What is the length of the air column if the temperature of the air in the room is 18 ° C?

Picture shows a tuning fork placed above the opening of the tube filled with the water. Water is removed from the tube for the distance L.

the flow of current is not current
bcoz it doesn't satisfy the algabric laws of vectors
The Electric current can be defined as the dot product of the current density and the differential cross-sectional area vector : ... So the electric current is a scalar quantity . Scalars are related to tensors by the fact that a scalar is a tensor of order or rank zero .
