Numerical – 6. An observer stands at a distance of 850 m from the cliff and fires a gun. After what time gap will he hear the echo, if sound travels at a speed of 350 m s-1 in air?

Solution : Click Here

Numerical – 7. A pendulum has a frequency of 5 vibration per second. An observer starts the pendulum and fires a gun simultaneously. He hears the echo from the cliff after 8 vibrations of the pendulum. If the velocity of sound in air is 340 m s-1, what is the ×distance between the cliff and the observer?

Numerical – 8. The wavelength of waves produced on the surface of water is 20 cm. If the wave velocity is 24 m s-1, calculate :

(i) the number of waves produced in one second and

(ii) the time required to produce one wave.

Numerical – 10. A man standing in front of a vertical cliff fires a gun. He hears the echo after 3 seconds. On moving closer to the cliff by 82.5 m, he fires again. This time, he hears the echo after 2.5 seconds. Calculate :

(i) the distance of the cliff from the initial position of the man.

(ii) the velocity of sound.

Solution : Click Here

Numerical – 11. A radar sends a signal to an aeroplane at a distance 45 km away with a speed of 3 × 108 m s-1. After how long is the signal received back from the aeroplane?
