Quantity One starts off with a scientific improvement of simple suggestions (strain, pressure, stiffness and compliance, viscous clamping) and coordinate alterations in either tensor and matrix notation. the elemental elastic box equations are then written in a kind analogous to Maxwell's equations. This analogy is then pursued whilst examining wave propagation in either isotropic and anisotropic solids. Piezoelectricity and bulk wave transducers are handled within the ultimate bankruptcy. Appendixes record slowness diagrams and fabric houses for varied crystalline solids. quantity applies the fabric built in quantity One to numerous boundary worth difficulties (reflection and refraction at aircraft surfaces, composite media, waveguides, and resonators). Pursuing the electromagnetic analogue, analytic strategies standard in electromagnetism (for instance, common mode emissions), are utilized to elastic difficulties. ultimate chapters deal with perturbation and variational equipment. An appendix lists homes of Rayleigh floor waves on unmarried crystal substrates.

1 1. 11: Beats. 7 We have seen that beuts result when we add two waves of slightly Group velocity different frequency but of the same wave speed. Now suppose we consider a real material, like glass, for which the wave speed is different for different frequencies: c = c(v) = c(l/h). We call such a material dispersive, thinking of the behavior of a prism in dispersing the spectrum; we will study this in detail shortly. Let us see what 42 Superposition becomes of two waves of different frequency in a dispersive medium: A sin 2 4 ; y1= - vlt) , y2 = A This is interesting primarily when v1 N y , = 2A sin[ 7r(d + i) x r(v1 c2 sin 2n - - v2 t v2 (hence, A, .

625 x J-sec. The photon’s momentum is then p = hv/c = h/h. The photon is never observed at rest, and would in fact have zero mass if it were at rest. But since we know its velocity, c, and momentum, we might assign it a mass: “m” = p / c = hv/c2. Note that this is suggestive of the relativistic result U = mc2. The first two rules of geometrical optics are consistent with the proposition that light is composed of particles. The pressure of light leads to some rather interesting calculations. Consider, for instance, a flashlight adrift in space: If the light emits a beam in one direction, with power P for T seconds, its subsequent motion is described by M V = PT/c, where M is the mass of the flashlight.

6. Height 40m 30m I :oo 2-7: shot " for the example. M. 7. Then the four parameters of our equation are easily obtained. First, the amplitude is 5 m. 4 Momentum and energy 25 is 2A. We measure y from the equilibrium point, at 35 m. Next we may ask for the wavelength. Our snapshot shows this directly as 20 m. The value of c is not so directly evident, but we can obtain it from A and 7. The period is measured on the first graph as 7 = 2 min or, more conventionally, 7 = 120 sec. Now c =A/T, and so our value of c is c = '6 m/sec.
