    Description. For courses in Physics of Sound/Music. Using a hands-on and experimental approach, this book incorporates developments in digital audio technology—including consumer products—into a firm foundation of the physics of bility: Available.   In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini goes over some of the basics (and some of the not so basics) of the Physics of Sound. Produced in collaboration with PBS Digital Studios: http.

    The Physics of Music Music is the creation of complex sequences of sounds that have a pleasent effect. For some currently inexplicable reason, when more than one frequency is heard simulatanously, it can have an a profoundly pleasent or amazingly disconcerting effect. about the viewpoint of music and especially guitars. This way of thinking has helped the author to learn many topics in engineering in practise by making a concrete reference to the technology of music. Therefore, this book is a docu-mentation of different topics in physics, music and engineering, all connected by that one bass guitar.

Points to Remember Sound is a form of energy which produces the sensation of hearing. Music is pleasent to hear and is caused by periodic vibrations. The author is B. H.

Not everyone likes reading about sound physics for fun, but I do and I would most certainly recommend this book. I love music and instruments and it's nice to see how science and art are so closely related. None of the state universities here offer sound physics as part of their music programs, so I bought this text for independent study/5(9).

Discover the best Physics of Acoustics & Sound in Best Sellers. Find the top most popular items in Amazon Books Best Sellers. There are thousands of YouTube videos of interesting sound phenomena and dozens of simulations related to the physics of sound and music. This book was created from trying to provide access to these resources in a single source, first from a web page, then as interactive simulations on web pages and finally as this interactive textbook.

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 synthesizers.

A clearly written and organized text on the production, propagation, and perception of the sound we call music. Organized into six major parts (each with three chapters) treating the sources of sound and production of musical sound; the propagation of sound and those environmental features that have an immediate influence on the sound that is propagated; and the perceptual aspects of the Cited by: 6.

Physics of Sound Traveling Waves. Sound is produced when something vibrates. The vibrating body causes the medium (water, air, etc.) around it to vibrate.

Vibrations in air are called traveling longitudinal waves, which we can hear. Sound waves consist of areas of high and low pressure called compressions and rarefactions, respectively.

Everyday low prices and free delivery on eligible orders/5(17). 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 what would be achieved with a more traditional approach.

SOUND, MUSIC, AND NOISE. Music doesn't emerge from random creative inspiration. Instead, they involve structure, pattern, repetition and other characteristics that make them recognizable to the human ear. In the end, music is a sort of science -- a fascinating, pulsating type of sound that peers through people's aural perceptions and into the universe : Nathan Chandler.

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.

This book is about 30 years old, but it's still a great introduction to the science of musical sound. There's some mathematics in there that I can't be bothered to try to understand at the moment, but most often, you can get the idea behind the mathematics without understanding the equations/5.

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.

Comprehensive and accessible, this foundational text surveys many aspects of acoustics, beginning with a brief history of the art and science of music.

Subsequent topics include general principles of sound, musical scales, characteristics of instruments, recording devices, and other subjects.

The comparison between music and physics rests on the fact that sound is a wave with similarities to the wave phenomena that underlie modern physics. That observation sometimes yields illuminating results—e.g., the notion that the early universe contained tiny density fluctuations that looked like ,light-year-long sound waves and 5/5(2).

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.

A sonic boom is the intense sound that occurs as the shock wave moves along the ground.Additional Physical Format: Online version: Rigden, John S. Physics and the sound of music. New York: Wiley, © (OCoLC) Material Type.
