#### What is the difference between echo and reverberation?



If we shout or clap, near a tall building or a hill, we will hear the same sound back in a little time. This is called an echo.
A sound created in a big hall will persist by repeat...

#### Prove that for hearing distinct echo, minimum distance of the obstacle from source of sound must be 17.2m at 22 Celsius in air [given speed of sound 344m/s]. Answer:  As the sensation of sound persists in our brain for about 0.1 s, to hear a distinct echo the time interval between the original sound and the reflected one must be at least 0.1s. If we take the speed of sound to be 344 m/s at a given temperature, say at 22 ÂºC in air, sound must go to the obstacle and reach back the ear of the listener on reflection after 0.1s.   Hence, the total distance covered by the sound from the point of generation to the reflecting surface and back should be at least (344 m/s) Ã—0.1 s = 34.4 m. Thus, for hearing distinct echoes, the minimum distance of the obstacle from the source of sound must be half of this distance. I.e., 34.4/2 = 17.2 m [given speed of sound 344m/s]



17.2 m at room temperature and normal humidity.
