ACCOMPLISH THAT ?^ PONT, BEN- Pl/TI'M FIXIM' T' PINP OUT. A LITTLE EVE By Jolita Let's imagine that you could) hear an echo everytime you shouted or a loud noise was made! Pretty soon you'd find it very annoying. Even though we sometimes find it great fun to produce an echo, we're probably lucky that it takes special conditions to make one. Let's see what those conditions are. We start with sound. Sound travels in waves much | like ripples made by a pebble thrown into the water. Sound waves go out in all directions from the source of the sound. When a sound wave meets an obstacle, it may bounce back, or be "reflected". When a sound wave is reflected it is heanl as an echo. So an echo by simply sound that is repeated by reflection. Now sound waves come against all kinds of obstacles, whatever is in their path. Some of these obstacles don't reflect the waves, they absor them. When the sound is ab sorbed, there is no echo Smooth, regular surfaces, sue as a wall, a cliff, the side of house, or a vaulted,roof, bounc sound waves back and are th best for producing edboes. If a sound is reflected by on such obstacle, only one echo i heard. This is called a "simp) echo may be repeated man by two or more obstacles, tb echo may be repeated manj .times. This is known as a i "compound echo" or "rever iberation". An unusual exampl of a compound echo was founc in a certain old palace in Milan Italy. A pistol was fired in th palace and the report was re peated more than 50 times! Caves and underground tun nels are very good places fo echoes. Did you know that even clouds reflect sounds? As i matter of fact, when you hea thunder rumbling what you ari hearing is the many reflection by clouds of the sharp sounc caused by the lightning flash. In public buildings echoes ca be a nuisance. So special build ing materials have been de veloped which absorb sounds and heavy draperies are often used to absorb the sound tha would be reflected from ban walls or ceilings. * * * » FUN TIME The Chuckle Box Caller: Do you go to school my little man?
