3. (a) This is to ensure that the phase

     (c) There is a minimum intensity of                   ------------------------------------------------

the intensity increases locally. At other
points where there was originally a
maximum intensity signal, there will be a
reduction in intensity when L2 is
disconnected. Overall energy is conserved.
                                                       = 10 log I / Io = 60 – 10 log 4 = 54 dB

          The lower limit of the car speed                  Now P  2P, 2 m  6 m, so

          Local speed limit = 50 x 1000/3600                So required intensity level
          = 13.9 m s-1                                      = 10 log (2/9) I / Io
          So the car speed still exceeds the                = 10 log 2/9 + 50 = 43.5 dB
speed limit.                                           ----------------------------------------------------

(b) The bat itself is a moving receiver.               0.34 / 2 = 0.17 m. So statement 2 is

Multiple Choice                                        5. Statement 2 is correct because
                                                       ultrasonic has high frequency, so the

On solving, we have vs = 112 m/s

2. Let I be the intensity due to one
loudspeaker. Since intensity is proportional
to (amplitude)2, so the resulting intensity at
a point of constructive interference will be
4I (not 2I).
               4I
60  10 log       =10 log 4 + 10 log I / Io                Suppose observer O stands at O.
               Io                                      Without loss of generality, suppose the boy
Required intensity level                               is moving in anticlockwise direction and is
at A at t = 0. Then at A, to observer O, he is
neither approaching nor receding, so the               15. R, S and T are positions of nodes.
frequency remains unchanged at fo.                           = 3 cm = 0.03 m
At B, the boy is moving away from O, and                    f = v /  = 3 x 108 / 0.03 = 1 x 1010 Hz
the drop in frequency must be the largest. At          ----------------------------------------------------
C, he is again neither approaching nor
receding, so the frequency is unchanged. At
D, the boy is approaching towards O, and
the rise in frequency would be the largest.
The time for travelling from B to D is
obviously longer that that from D to B, so
the answer is D.
----------------------------------------------------
9. Wavelength is unchanged for stationary
source.  = v/f = 300 / 600 = 0.5 m
----------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------
13. The first resonance position corresponds
to the lowest frequency with simplest mode
of vibration.
      = 4 l => fo = v /  = v / 4l
For a closed tube, only odd harmonics are
present.
     f1 = v /  = v / (4l / 3) = 3v / 4l = 3 fo
So if the length is unchanged, the next
higher frequency corresponds to 3fo.
Now if l is increased to 3l (by lowering the
water level), then f will be kept unchanged.
So the required length should be
     5 cm x 3 = 15 cm
----------------------------------------------------
14. 70 = 10 log I / Io
     Required intensity level
     = 10 log 2I / Io
     = 10 log 2 + 10 log I / Io
     = 3.01 + 70 = 73.01 dB
