FAQ

Those who are looking for an answer to the question «The amount of energy a sound wave carries per second through a unit area?» often ask the following questions:

### 👋 Amount of energy a sound wave carries per second through a unit area?

Intensity still same answering my summative science

### 👋 Determined by the amount of energy a sound wave carries?

it is frequency an i know it by science class.

### 👋 Is frequency the amount of energy a sound wave carries?

No. Frequency is the number of cycles per second in a wave.

intensity

We've handpicked 22 related questions for you, similar to «The amount of energy a sound wave carries per second through a unit area?» so you can surely find the answer!

What is a wave that carries large amount of energy?
• Ocean waves are transverse waves that carry huge amounts of energy across the surface of the sea as they move up and down. A wave 3 m (10ft) high carries enough energy to power around 1,000 lightbulbs in every 1 m (3 ft) of its length.
Which type of electromagnetic wave carries the most amount of energy?

The basic category would be Gamma Rays.

A sound wave _____ depends on the amount of energy?
• T he amount of energy in a sound wave depends on its intensity or loudness, measured in decibels. The quietest sound we can hear is given a value of 0 decibels (0 dB ). The rustle of leaves has a loudness of 10 dB, and conversation is about 55 dB. Sounds over 100 dB begin to cause us pain.
What is the smallest unit of sound wave energy?

The smallest unit of sound wave energy is the phonon. The phonon and the photon and the electron can in some ways all behave like a small particle.

What carries a sound wave?

Ya momma

What substance carries sound wave?

The best materials for carrying sound waves include some metals such as aluminum, and hard substances like diamond.

What wave form typically carries the greatest amount of energy through the ocean surface at any given time?

short waves

What wave carries the most energy?

Tidal..

Which wave carries the most energy?

Gamma rays have the highest energies, the shortest wavelengths, and the highest frequencies. Radio waves, on the other hand, have the lowest energies, longest wavelengths, and lowest frequencies of any type of EM radiation.

How is a wave's amplitude related to the amount of energy the wave carries?

There is a direct correlation between the amplitude of a wave and its energy. The greater the amplitude, the more energy it carries compared to the same wave of lower amplitude.

What is the relationship between wavelength and the amount of energy the wave carries?

carbon

What is the amount of energy in a sound wave called?
• Energy = Amplitude. The amount of energy a sound wave has is known as it's amplitude. The more amplitude, the further the sound will travel before it runs out of energy.
What is the amount of energy of a sound wave called?

Amplitude

Is it the wave that carries energy?
• To conclude, it isn’t the wave that carry energy, it is the photon that carries energy. This photon is like a ball inside a bigger ball. In addition, the ball changes size cyclically as the photon itself moves from A to B along a wave like path.
What electromagnetic wave carries the most energy?

#### Gamma rays

Gamma rays have the highest energies and shortest wavelengths on the electromagnetic spectrum. Which electromagnetic wave carries the most energy?

Gamma rays have the most energy as they are of the highest frequency, this is described by the equation E=hf

Which em wave carries the least energy?
• Radio waves, on the other hand, have the lowest energies, longest wavelengths, and lowest frequencies of any type of EM radiation. In order from highest to lowest energy, the sections of the EM spectrum are named: gamma rays, X-rays, ultraviolet radiation, visible light, infrared radiation, and radio waves.
Describe the intensity of a sound wave that carries a lot of energy?

a sound wave that carries a lot of energy has a high intensity

What is the human perception of how much energy a sound wave carries?

Loudness

The more energy a sound wave carries the louder the sound and the bigger its... what?

Other things being equal, the sound wave with more energy will have a greater amplitude.However, the energy (more precisely, the intensity) also depends on the distance from the source, and on the exact frequency.

What is the term for the measure of the amount of energy a wave carries?

Energy is directly proportional to the frequency of a wave. The frequency times Planck's constant gives you the energy of a wave.

What do you call the amount of energy in a sound wave?

Sound energy density or sound density is the sound energy per unit volume (according to Wikipedia).
