Why ordinary sound waves bend while ultrasonic waves do not
Asked by Ayush Saraf | 13th Feb, 2010, 02:42: AM
Bending of waves is an effect caused by diffraction
Intensity of diffraction is indirectly praportional to wavelength . Distribuition will be broader for shorter wavelengths compared to that of longer wavelengths. So , bending in case of Ultrasonic waves is less.
Intensity will be distribuited in the diffraction pattern.
