12 and shows the 6 dB per doubling of distance relationship as straight line except when one is very close to the source. 16 invalid. As an approximate rule the nearfield region occurs within the radius described by the physical size of the source. In this region the sound field can vary wildly depending on the local variation of the vibration amplitudes of the source. 16 describes the reduction in sound intensity for a source which radiates in all directions. However, this is only possible when the sound source is well away from any surfaces that might reflect the propagating wave.

46. This shows four sine waves whose frequencies are 1F Hz, 3F Hz, 5F Hz, and 7F Hz, whose phase is zero (that is, they all start from the same value) and whose amplitude is inversely proportional to the frequency. This means that the 3F Hz component is 1⁄3 the amplitude of the component at 1F Hz and so on. 46, the result approximates a square wave, and, if more high frequency components were added, it would become progressively closer to an ideal square wave. The higher frequency components are needed in order to provide the fast rise, and sharp corners, of the square wave.

10 shows these two conditions. 9). 10 Addition of sine waves of different phases. 9 The sound at a particular point consists of a main loudspeaker signal and a reflection at the same amplitude that has been delayed by 1 millisecond. What is the pressure amplitude at this point at 250 Hz, 500 Hz and 1 kHz? The equation for pressure at a point due to a single frequency is given by the equation: Pat a point = Psound amplitude sin(2πft) or Psound amplitude sin(360°ft) where f = the frequency (in Hz) and t = the time (in s) Note the multiplier of 2π, or 360°, within the sine function is required to express accurately the position of the wave within the cycle.
