Numerical Questions

  1. What is the wavelength of a radio station broadcasting at 1,000 Hz frequency? Speed of radio waves is equal to 3 × 108 m/s.

    (300 m)

  2. Assume that Young's modulus for silver is 7.75 × 1010 N/m2 at 20°C. If it has a density of 1.05 × 103 kg/m3, how fast does sound travel through silver?

    (2.67 × 103 m/s)
