Essay #5 Sound Discuss how at least 5 of the “function” of film sound Operate In Wall*E (time/place, character, attention, feeling, rhythm, subject, theme). Be specific in your response. The sound element narration, dialogue, sound effects and music makes the nonrealistic characters come alive. What we hear gives life to what we see and offers some clues to the meaning. Once we identify the sound on the action we suspect that it is warning for what going to happen litter on...

INTRODUCTION Sound is a mechanical wave an oscillation of pressure transmitted through a solid, liquid, or gas, composed of frequencies within the range of hearing and of a level sufficiently strong to be heard, or the sensation stimulated in organs of hearing by such vibrations. Sound is a sequence of waves of pressure which propagates through compressible media such as air or water. (Sound can propagate through solids as well, but there are additional modes of propagation). During their propagation...

Sound Waves: The Physics Of Sound

What is sound? Sound is a wave, a pattern—simple or complex, depending on the sound—of changing air pressure. Sound is produced by vibrations of objects. The vibrations push and pull on air molecules. The pushes cause a local compression of the air (increase in pressure), and the pulls cause a local rarefaction of the air (decrease in pressure). Since the air molecules are already in constant motion, the compressions and rarefactions starting at the original source are rapidly transmitted through...

sound proofing

by making their residential structures reinforcements to absorb incoming sound waves. They do this to avoid certain risks concerning health. This was called “Soundproofing”. Soundproofing is the method of reducing sound pressure with respect to a specified sound source and receptor. It may be approached by sound blocking or sound absorption. Both have different purposes, either to reduce sound entering or reducing the sound bouncing inside a room. 1 2 B. STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM ...

Sound Waves

sound waves Sound is a series of compression waves that moves through air or other materials. These sound waves are created by the vibration of an object, like a radio loudspeaker. The waves are detected when they cause a detector to vibrate. Your eardrum vibrates from sound waves to allow you to sense them. Sound has the standard characteristics of any waveform. Sound is a waveform that travels through matter. Although it is commonly in air, sound will rapidly travel...

Sound Wave

Resonance RESONANCE: " The property whereby any vibratory system responds with maximum amplitude to an applied force having the a frequency equal to its own." In english, this means that any solid object that is struck with a sound wave of equal sound wave vibrations will amplitude the given tone. This would explain the reason why some singers are able to break wine glasses with their voice. The vibrations build up enough to shatter the glass. This is called RESONANCE. Resonance...

Sound and Acoustic

Sound and acoustics It is common to think that acoustics is the study of music. Although acoustics does comprise the study of musical instruments, it also includes an extensive range of topics, including: SONAR systems, noise control, ultrasounds for medical imaging and other processes, electroacoustic communication, seismology, etc. [1] In general, acoustics is the study of mechanical waves including sound, vibration, infrasound and ultrasound. When talking about the acoustics, it is essential...

Speed of Sound

Phsyics 1 | Speed of Sound | Mastery Experiment | | Lindsay Pickelsimer | 12/3/2010 | | The speed of sound is a traveled distance through a certain amount of time that uses sound waves that spreads through and elastic medium. It usually depends on the temperature to which how fast it travels; speed of sound is increased when temperature increases. Frequency and wave length deals with determining the speed of sound. Speed of sound is inversely proportional to that...

Sound Pollution

Main effects of sound pollution • Deafness, temporary or permanent, is one of the most prevalent effects of noise pollution. Mechanics, locomotive drivers, telephone operators etc all have their hearing impairment. • The first and foremost effect of noise is a decrease in the efficiency in working. Research has proved the fact that human efficiency increases with noise reduction. • Too much of noise disturbs the rhythms of working, thereby affecting the concentration required for doing a...

Sound of Silence

The theme of Sound of Silence is alienation and lack of communication. From the darkness (my old friend) onwards it carries that theme and loneliness along. "In restless dreams I walked ALONE" Then the neon light splits the night and touches the sound of silence. The naked light show 10,000 people (maybe more) talking without speaking and hearing without listening and writing songs that voices never shared (no one dared) because of the fear of breaking the silence. Then the writer steps in with...
