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

topics about sound waves, what interests me and what I would like to learn about. November 4th: I started to research the basics and a sound wave and its properties. I also to notes on what a sound wave is and how frequency affects a sound wave. November 7th: Possible Topics What is a sound wave The Nature Of a Sound Wave Sound waves through different mediums Instrumental sound waves How microphones and headphones work How humans interpret sound (range of hearing) Convert Sound Waves Into...

Wavelength and Sound

Experiment 7: Velocity of Sound Laboratory Report Hazel Guerrero, Kyle Iddoba, Matthew Jocson, Thea Lagman Department of Biological Sciences College of Science, University of Santo Tomas Espanya, Manila Philippines Abstract Verification of the relationship between frequency of sound and its wavelength and the determination of the velocity and the speed of sound in different mediums was the main focus of this experiment. The speed of sound and its velocity was determined using the resonance...

The Sound of Silence

Expository Writing 1213 Conference draft Mauricio Cuevas Due Wednesday, September 05, 2012 The sound of silence “A horrid stillness first invades the ear, and in that silence we the tempest fear”(Dryden, 7). Silence inevitably starts with a sound, which either goes off very slowly, or ends in a Swift movement; and it ends the same way it started, with noise. Noise, sound, our perception of both has changed since they were recognized and “categorized” as such. People see this soundscape...

Sound Acoustics

Indoor & Outdoor Acoustic Sounds Indoor Acoustics The Principles of Sound and Acoustics Sound is the apparent vibration of air resulting from the vibration of a sound source (e.g. guitar sound board, hair dryer, etc). We can describe such regular vibration in terms of the sum of simpler vibrations (harmonics). In other words any periodic oscillation and hence resulting waveform can be described in terms of the sum of its harmonics. Each harmonic being a simple sine wave (often called a...

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 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 ...

English Vowel Sounds

vowel is known as the long a sound and it has the same sound as the alphabet letter A. Try to practice simple words such as: late, eight, and hate. Remember that you have to open your mouth wide for this sound.The long a sound is written as eɪ in IPA. Therefore, you can think about pronouncing the long a sound as the short e sound plus the short i sound. Many non native English speakers pronounce the long a sound as the short e sound because they drop the short i sound. | | | | Major...
