1 1.4 Periodic Waves Often have situations where wave repeats at regular intervals Electromagnetic wave in optical fibre Sound from a guitar string. These regularly repeating waves are known as periodic waves. Can characterize periodic waves either by the length scale, wavelength, or the time scale, period, at which they repeat.

2 Periodic wave in spatial domain - length scale is wavelength Given symbol l y l x For red light (HeNe laser) l = nm. For middle C on a piano l = 1.3 m.

3 Periodic wave in time domain - time scale is period y T t More often than not we refer to a periodic wave in terms of the number of times the wave repeats in 1 second. This is the frequency, f. f = 1/period so f = 1/T.

4 Wave speed for period waves Find that the wavelength, period and wave speed are related by the following v = l T This can be written as v = fl For green light, l = 500 nm, v = 3x10 8 m s -1, f = 6x10 14 Hz. For middle C, l = 1.3, v = 340 m s -1, f = 262 Hz.

5 1.5 Sine Waves and Periodic Waves We can write the wave function for an arbitrary disturbance as y(x,t) = f(x - vt) with f() describing an arbitrary function. For periodic waves we can use sin/cos to give functionality to the wave. Why sin/cos? They are periodic in 2π. They represent a pure colour or pure tone. Complex waves can be made up from the addition of sin/cos waves - Fourier theory.

6 1.5 Sine Waves and Periodic Waves For a periodic wave the wave function is ( ) = Asin 2p ( l x -vt ) Á y x,t The term 2π/l scales the wave to the natural period of the sin function. Ê Ë The term A gives the amplitude of the wave which is the maximum displacement of the wave. ˆ

7 1.5 Sine Waves and Periodic Waves A more elegant way of writing the wave function is y( x,t) = Asin( kx - wt + j) The phase of the wave is kx - wt + j. THE PHASE IS ALWAYS MEASURED IN RADIANS. The term k = 2π/l is called the wave number. The term w = 2πv/l 2πf and is the angular frequency. The term j is the initial phase of the wave.

8 1.5 Sine Waves and Periodic Waves This representation of the wave function y( x,t) = Asin( kx - wt + j) Is called the w - k notation. The wave speed is given by v = w k 2pf lf 2p l

9 1.5 Sine Waves and Periodic Waves The wave function for a wave is given by y( x,t) = 0.02sin( 0.4x - 50t + 0.8) m Find (a) the amplitude, (b) the wavelength, (c) the period, (d) the initial phase and (e) the wave speed. To start to address this problem compare the given wave function with the algebraic version. y( x,t) = Asin( kx - wt + j)

10 1.5 Sine Waves and Periodic Waves ( ) y x,t ( ) m = 0.02sin 0.4x - 50t ( ) y x,t ( ) = Asin kx - wt + j (a) Amplitude A = 0.02 m (b) Wave number k = 0.4 rad m -1. As k = 2π/l then l = 5π m (c) Angular frequency w = 50 rad s -1. As w = 2πf and f = 1/T then T = 2π/w. Hence T = π/25 s. (d) Initial phase j = 0.8 rad. (e) Wave speed v = w/k = 50 rad s -1 /0.4 rad m -1 = 125 m s -1

11 1.6 The Phase of a Periodic Wave The term kx- wt +j gives the phase of the wave. The phase can be understood using circular motion with the amplitude of the wave defining the radius of the circle. The radius will rotate counterclockwise as it traces out the circle.

12 If we let kx- wt +j be a single variable F the wave function can be written as y(x,t) = Asin(F). As F advances then the displacement from the x or t axis changes. F = 0 rad F = π/4 rad F = π/2 rad F = 3π/2rad

13 1.7 Phase difference between two points on a wave The wavelength and period define the distance and time for the wave to repeat by 2π rad. The phase difference F between any two points on a wave is found as follows. At P 1 the phase is F 1 = kx 1 - wt 1 +j P 1 (x 1,t 1 ) At P 2 the phase is F 2 = kx 2 - wt 2 +j P 2 (x 2,t 2 ) So the phase difference F is F = F 2 - F 1 F = F 2 - F 1 = k(x 2 - x 1 )- w(t 2 - t 1 )

14 1.7 Example on Phase Difference A harmonic wave is described by the wave function y(x,t) = 0.02sin(0.4x - 50t + 0.8) m. Find the phase diference between two points (a) Separated in space by 0.6 m at the same time (b) Separated in time by 0.03 s at the same point in space So the phase difference F is F = F 2 - F 1 F = F 2 - F 1 = k(x 2 - x 1 )- w(t 2 - t 1 ) (a) Here x 2 - x 1 = 0.6 m and t 1 = t 2. So F = k(x 2 - x 1 ) = 0.4 * 0.6 rad m -1 m = 0.24 rad. (b) Here x 2 = x 1 and t 2 - t 1 = 0.03 s. So F = - w(t 2 - t 1 ) = 0.03 * 50 rad s -1 s = 1.5 rad.

15 1.8 The initial phase of a wave A harmonic wave is generally described by the wave function To what does j correspond? Let us set x = 0m and t = 0 s. y(x,t) = Asin(kx - wt + j) y(0,0) = Asin(j) So j gives the displacement of the wave at x = 0m and t = 0 s. Hence the name - initial phase. j does not change the sequence of the events in a wave it only makes them happen sooner or later in the sequence.

16 Let us consider a harmonic wave of the form y(x,t) = Asin(kx - wt + j) For various values of j j = 0 rad j = π/4 rad j = -π/4 rad

17 1.9 Particle motion and Harmonic Waves Have defined a wave as a disturbance from the equilibrium condition that propagates without the transport of matter. For a harmonic wave the particles oscillate in the same way as a harmonic oscillator and execute simple harmonic motion. Particles therefore have a Particle speed v p Particle acceleration a p

18 1.9 Particle motion and Harmonic Waves Let displacement be described by y(x,t) = Asin(kx - wt + j). Particle speed v p (x,t) v p ( x,t ) dy( x,t ) = dt = -wacos( kx - wt + j) Here we treat kx + j as constants that are independent of time. Particle acceleration a p (x,t) a p ( ) ( x,t ) = d 2 y x,t dt 2 = -w 2 Asin( kx - wt + j)

19 Phase angle (/rad) Displacement y(x,t) Particle velocity vp(x,t) Particle acceleration ap(x,t) v p (x,t) is -π/2 out of phase with y(x,t) - QUADRATURE a p (x,t) is -π out of phase with y(x,t) - ANTIPHASE

20 1.9 Particle motion and Harmonic Waves We must take care not to confuse the wave speed and the particle speed. The wave speed is the speed at the wave propagates through the medium. v=fl = w/k The particle speed/velocity is the speed/velocity at which the particle oscillates about its equilibrium position. v p ( x,t ) dy( x,t ) = dt = -wacos( kx - wt + j)

21 Particle speed and wave speed Transverse waves:- The displacement is at right angles to the direction of propagation. So the particle velocity v p is at right angles to wave speed v v p Direction of propagation of the wave.

22 Longitudinal waves:-the displacement is in the same direction as the wave propagates. So particle velocity v p is parallel with the direction of wave speed. v p Direction of propagation

23 1.9 Particle speed and acceleration A harmonic wave is described by the wave function. What is y(x,t) = 2.4 X 10-3 sin(36x - 270t) m. (a) the maximum particle speed and (b) the particle acceleration at x = 4 m and t = 1 s? To start let us write the wave function in the standard form y(x,t) = Asin(kx - wt)

24 For part (a): the particle velocity v p (x,t) is given by v p ( x,t ) dy( x,t ) = dt = d( Asin(kx - wt ) dt So the particle velocity v p (x,t) is given by v p (x,t) =-wacos(kx-wt) Here the maximum particle speed v pmax (x,t) occurs when cos(kx -wt) = -1. v pmax (x,t) = wa v pmax (x,t) = 270 rad s -1 * 2.4 X 10-3 m = 0.65 m/s.

25 For part (b): the particle acceleration a p (x,t) is given by a p ( ) ( x,t ) = d 2 y x,t dt 2 = d 2 ( Asin(kx - wt ) dt 2 So the particle acceleration a p (x,t) is given by a p (x,t) =-w 2 Asin(kx-wt) Here w = 270 rad s -1, k = 36 rad m -1 A = 2.4 X 10-3 m, x = 4 m and t = 1 s. a p (x,t) =- (270 rad s -1 ) 2 * 2.4 X 10-3 m cos(36 rad m -1 * 4 m rad s -1 * 1 s) a p (x,t) = -165 m/s 2

26 1.9 Particle motion and Harmonic Waves A harmonic wave is described by the wavefunction y(x,t) = 0.02sin(0.4x - 50t + 0.8) m. Determine (a) the wave speed, (b) the particle speed at x = 1 m and t = 0.5 s To solve write the wave function as y(x,t) = Asin(kx - wt + j) k = 0.4 rad m -1 w = 50 rad s -1 (a) Wave speed v = w/k = 50/0.4 rad s -1 /rad m -1 = 125 m s -1 (b) Particle speed v p v p ( x,t ) dy( x,t ) = dt = -wacos( kx - wt + j) k = 0.4 rad m -1 w = 50 rad s -1 x = 1 m and t = 0.5 s v p (x,t) = -50*0.02cos(0.4radm -1 *1m - 50rads -1 *0.5s +0.8rad) m s -1 v p (x,t) = 0.23 m s -1
