This online book uses a series of tutorials based on interactive simulations and animations to explore the physics of sound. Students develop their understanding of waves through guided questions and exercises based on these simulations. An EPub edition is also available in the Apple iTunes store: ISBN The Physics of Sound. Sound lies at the very center of speech communication. A sound wave is both the end product of the speech production mechanism and the primary source of raw material used by the listener to recover the speaker's message. Because of the central role played by sound in speech communication, it is important to have a good File Size: KB. NOISE CONTROL Physics of Sound J. S. Lamancusa Penn State 12/5/ Summary of Plane Waves: • Plane waves radiate in one direction • Pressure amplitude is constant over distance • The sound intensity is proportional to prms 2 • Pressure and velocity are in phase (i.e. the impedance is real and = ρc). Physics of Vibrations This section starts by defining a few basic physical principles such as energy and pressure (readers already familiar with these principles can skip sections 2A and 2B). The rest of the section examines the physical description of vibrations, the origin of all sound.

The speed of sound depends upon the type of medium and its state. It is generally affected by two things: elasticity and inertia. This is the Newton-Laplace equation. Laplace added the γ (gamma) correction factor for ideal gases. Young's modulus. cP/cV specific heat ratio. absolute pressure. absolute temperature. Boltzmann constant. elements of wave and sound theory. With that said, the approach here will be to understand music and musical instruments first, and to study the physics of waves and sound as needed to push the understanding of the music concepts. The goal however is a deeper understanding of the physics of waves and sound than.   Shock Waves. The Mach number is the velocity of a source divided by the speed of sound, M = \(\frac{v_{s}}{v}\). When a sound source moves faster than the speed of sound, a shock wave is produced as the sound waves interfere.   This book incorporates the developments in digital audio technology, including consumer products, into a firm foundation of the physics of sound. No knowledge of physics, mathematics, or music is required. Includes updated information on musical : Pearson.

On the atomic scale, it is a disturbance of atoms that is far more ordered than their thermal motions. In many instances, sound is a periodic wave, and the atoms undergo simple harmonic motion. In this text, we shall explore such periodic sound waves. A vibrating string produces a sound wave as illustrated in Figure , Figure , and.
