NCERT Question 7 A person has a hearing range from 20 Hz to 20 kHz. What are the typical wavelengths of sound waves in air corresponding to these two frequencies? Take the speed of sound in air as 344 m sā€“1. Hearing range for humans = 20 Hz to 20 kHz = 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz Speed to sound = v = 344 m/s We know that, Speed of sound = Wavelength Ɨ Frequency Wavelength = (š‘†š‘š‘’š‘’š‘‘ š‘œš‘“ š‘ š‘œš‘¢š‘›š‘‘)/š¹š‘Ÿš‘’š‘žš‘¢š‘’š‘›š‘š‘¦ Frequency = 20 Hz Wavelength = (š‘†š‘š‘’š‘’š‘‘ š‘œš‘“ š‘ š‘œš‘¢š‘›š‘‘)/š¹š‘Ÿš‘’š‘žš‘¢š‘’š‘›š‘š‘¦ = 344/20 = 172/10 = 17.2 m Frequency = 20,000 Hz Wavelength = (š‘†š‘š‘’š‘’š‘‘ š‘œš‘“ š‘ š‘œš‘¢š‘›š‘‘)/š¹š‘Ÿš‘’š‘žš‘¢š‘’š‘›š‘š‘¦ = 344/20000 = 172/10000 = 0.0172 m Wavelength of frequency 20 Hz is 17.2 m Wavelength of frequency 20000 Hz is 0.0172 m
