Sound Science Test

5th grade, science, sound

Sound Discrimination Identifying sound from one another.
Properties An object's look feel,sound,taste,and smell are its properties.
Code Signals used to represent letters and numbers.
Vibration A shaking,back-and-forth movement.
Sound reciever something that detects,responds to,or hears a sound.

Amplify To make louder
Megaphone Collects and focuses sound energy to amplify it at the source or receiver.
Drop chamber objects can be identified their properties, including the sound they make. sounds can be discriminated by their characteristics
drop codes sounds can convey information to humans in codes, ie, warnining signs
tone generator/tuning fork/long gong all sounds come from a source that is vibrating anything that detects a sound is called A SOUND RECIEVER, I.E. ea, telephone, reciever, microphone stronger, more intense vibrations make a louder sound
tounge depressor fast vibrations produce high pitched sounds. slow vibrations produce low pitched sounds.
water phone/ xylophone/ kalimba/ string beam a long object has a low pitched and vibrates slowly. a short object has a high pitch and vibrates quickly.
the mini gutbucket/ the foss-ulele (tension) the greater the tension on a sound source, the higher the sound.
sounds through air and water sound can travel through water. sounds travel faster through aliquid (water) vs. a gas (air). therefore sounds are louder in a liquid vs. a gas.
sounds through solids; wood and string sounds travel well through solids like wood and string.sounds travel best through solids- fast,loud,clear. for sound to exist there must be a sound source,a medium or form of matter for sound to travel through,and a receiver.
sound through solids- continued all three elements must exist for sound to exist. sound energy can be amplified with a megaphone at the sound source or sound receiver.
