Numericals Based on Ultrasonics

Problem 1. Calculate the fundamental frequenet; of a quartz crystal of 2 mm thickness. The density of the crystal is 2650 kg/m3 and Young’s modulus is 7.9 x 1010 N/m2.



Hint:                                                                                 [Ans. 1.365 MHz]


Problem 2. An ultrasonic beam of 1 em wavelength sent by the ship returns from sea bed after 2 seconds. If velocity of ultrasonic beam in sea water is 1510 m/sec at 0°C, its salinity at 30°C is

2 gm/lit., calculate the depth of sea bed at 30°C.


Hint: v1 = v0 + 1.14s + 4.21t- 0.037 t2


and Depth of sea bed at 30°C = V30*t/2


[Ans. 1637.20 m]


Problem 3. The difference between the transmission time and receiving time is 0.44 s. Calculate the depth of sea bed in this case if velocity of ultrasonic wave is 1440 m/sec.

Hint:                                       2d/ t = v




Problem 4. A quartz crystal of thickness 0.001 m is vibrating at resonance. Calculate the  fundamental frequency. Given Y for quartz 7.9 x 1010 N/m2 and p for quartz = 2650 kg/m3.



[Ans. n = 2.73 MHz]

Problem 5. A piezoelectric X-cut quartz plate has a thickness of 1.5 mm. If the velocity of propagation of longitudinal sound waves along the X-direction is 5760 m/s, calculate the fundamental frequency of the crystal.


Hint:                            Thickness = λ/2 , n = v/λ
