21. What do you call of the several sound sources which are related to each other?

Correlated sound sources

22. If several sounds come from several unrelated sources, the sources are called

uncorrelated sound sources

23. If sounds are produced from three loudspeakers which are driven from a single source (i.e. amplifier), the speakers are considered as

correlated sound source

24. Sound sources that are coming from different instruments are called


25. If a sound receiver receives two sound waves, one directly from the source and the other from simple reflection (with short delay), the sound waves are considered as


26. If a sound receiver receives two sound waves, one directly from the source and the other from a long relay deflection, the sound waves are considered


27. The sound at a particular point consist of a direct wave and a reflection with the same amplitude (P) but has been delayed by 1 ms. If the sound frequency is 1kHz, calculate the pressure amplitude in terms of P at this point.


28. Calculate the total signal pressure level when two vocalists sing at the same pressure level of 1x10^-3 Pa each.

1.41x10^-3 Pa.

29. Frequency range of audible signal is

30. 20Hz-20kHz.

31. What is the normal audible range of the human ear?

20 Hz to 20kHz.

32. Audible sound that can be detected by human ear ranges from

38. The increase in level for uncorrelated sound sources of equal amplitudes is proportional to the

square root of the number of sound sources, clip_image010

39. The sound intensity is

inversely proportional to the square of the distance.

40. As sound propagates from the source, its intensity follows an

inverse square law.

42. A measure of the power density of a sound wave propagating in a particular direction


43. Is a measure of the total power radiated in all directions by a source of sound.


44. It is also known as sound power level.


45. Acoustic impedance is _____ the sound pressure.

directly proportional to the square of
