Variation of Frequency of sound underwater

  • This has become our largest and most active forum because the physics GRE is just one aspect of getting accepted into a graduate physics program.
  • There are applications, personal statements, letters of recommendation, visiting schools, anxiety of waiting for acceptances, deciding between schools, finding out where others are going, etc.

Variation of Frequency of sound underwater

Post by NPB777 » Tue Feb 16, 2016 1:24 pm


I am very much interested to how frequency of sound varies in water. Also, how the frequency varies with temperature and depth? What are the different formulas related to this? Secondly, how can we determine the best frequency of operation? I wish to use ultrasound for transmitting sensor data which may require data rate up to few tens of kbps. I would be very thankful if anyone could answer the above questions or point to materials explaining the above.

With regards

Your best bet might be to put this in the right subforum. Or a better website for actual physics discussions. Try
