What is wavelength? Distance/length of one complete cycle
What is the typical value of wavelength? 0.15-1.8mm
True or False; Wavelength can be adjusted by operator False
What is intensity? Concentration of energy in a sound beam. Depends on both power in the beam and area over which the power is supplied.
What are the typical values of intensity? 0.01-300 W/cm^2
True or False; Intensity can be adjusted by the operator True
What is power? The rate of energy transfer or rate at which work is performed. "Bigness of wave"
What are the typical values of power? 4-90 miliwatts
True or False; Power can be adjusted by the operator True
What is amplitude? The difference between the minimum value and the average value of the acoustic variable. "Bigness of wave"
What are the typical values of amplitude? 1 million-3 million pascals (1-3 MPa)
Can amplitude be adjusted by the operator? Yes
What is frequency? Number of cycles that occur in one second
What are the typical values of frequency? 2 MHz - 10MHz

What is a Period? The time from the start of a cycle to the start of the next cycle
What are the typical values of a Period? 0.1-0.5 microseconds
Can the Period be adjusted by the operator? No
What is propagation speed? The distance that a sound wave travels though a medium in 1 second
What is the typical value of propagation speed? 1.54 x10^3
Can propagation speed be adjusted by the operator? No
True or False; Propagation speed decreases as frequency increases False, unrelated
True or Flase; Wavelength can be described as Long or Short True
Sound waves are; Longitudinal and Mechanical
What term describes the properties of the medium that affect the wave? Acoustic Variables

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

• SPACEBAR - flip the current card
• LEFT ARROW - move card to the Don't know pile
• RIGHT ARROW - move card to Know pile
• BACKSPACE - undo the previous action

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
