12. An explosion might be seen before it is heard because

a) sound waves have a similar propagation velocity than light waves.

b) there is constructive interference.

c) sound gets fainter the farther you are from where it was created =.

d) friction slows down the sound wave

e) a,c, and d are all involved.

13. Assume that the velocity of sound in air is about 1100 feet per second. A tuning fork that vibrates at 250 HZ gives rise to a sound wave having a wavelength of about

d) a sinusoidal sound wave.

e) of small amplitude

15. which of the following is false?

a) the sound waves from two tuning forks of the same frequency will interfere constructively at some points.

b) Two waves ,A and B, have the same wave velocity. If A has a higher frequency than B, A will have a shorter wavelength.

c) In a transverse wave, the motion of the medium is in the same direction as the wave velocity.
