Expert Answer:

Dear Student

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.
