   2.  Explain the inverse piezo electric effect. Describe the piezo electric method of                                     producing ultrasonic waves.

3. With relevant theory explain how the velocity of ultrasonic waves in liquid can be determined by using an acoustic grating.
4. (a) Describe the different methods of detecting ultrasonic waves.

    (b) List out the properties of ultrasonic waves.

5.  Explain the process of non-destructive testing of materials using pulse echo technique.

6. Explain the different display modes of ultrasonic transmission system.

7. Explain how ultrasonic waves are useful in the following application
     (a) SONAR
     (b)  Non-destructive testing
1). For a quartz crystal of length 0.05m, calculate the fundamental frequency of oscillation in a piezo-electric oscillator if the velocity of longitudinal waves in the crystal is 5.5 x 103 m/s

2) For a iron rod of length 40 mm, calculate  the natural frequency if it’s density 7.25 x  103 Kg/m3 and Young’s modules is 115 x 10 9 N/m2

3) An ultrasonic source of 0.07 MHz sends down a pulse towards the seabed which returns after 0.65 sec. The velocity of sound in sea water is 1700 m/s. calculate the depth of sea and the wave length of pulse.

4)      Calculate the velocity of ultrasonic waves in a certain liquid using the following data obtained in an acoustic grating expt.
 of ultrasonic wave = 100 MHz
Wavelength of light used = 600 nm
Angle of first order diffracted beam = 5

5)      A quartz crystal in an ultrasonic interferometer produces stationary waves of frequency 1.5 MHz. If the distance between 6 consecutive nodes is 2.75 mm, find the velocity of the ultrasonic waves.
