Sound Speed



V (m/s): sound speed in environment with temperature t (celsius)



Sound Intensity



E: sound energy (J), P: sound power (W), A: the surface area of a sphere (m2), t: time (s)




Sound Intensity Level



I0: the standard reference sound intensity






The Doppler Effect



Vo: the relative speed of the observer; vs: the relative speed of the source; v: the sound speed in this medium; fs, fo: sound frequency of the source and observer



Sound Speed In Gases



V: speed of sound (m/s), R: universal gas constant, T: absolute temperature (K), M:molecular mass of gas (kg/mol), γ: adiabatic constant




Example in air
