9 properties of ultrasonic waves

  1. The following are the main properties of ultrasonic waves:
  1. The ultrasonic waves cannot travel through vacuum.
  2. These waves travel with speed of sound in a given medium.
  3. Their velocity remains constant in homogeneous media.
  4. These waves can weld certain plastics, metals etc.
  5. These can produce vibrations in low viscosity liquids.
  6. The ultrasonic waves are reflected and refracted just like light waves. i.e. Continue reading “9 properties of ultrasonic waves”
