    Let’s have a look at sound particles, acoustic pressure, propagation medium density, particle velocity, acoustic energy, volume velocity, and acoustic impedance. Abstract concepts? Nope—far from it. All are related to the physics of sound propagation in an elastic medium that result in changes to the displacement, pressure, density, temperature, and velocity within the medium. In other words, this is at the basis of everything we hear, the scientific essence of sound. Sound Particles. Sound requires a medium for the transmission… View this story

    Take a free lesson in a SynAudCon web-based training course   Why should one bother trying to understand basic acoustics? The most simple (and correct) answer is that study of basic concepts enables one to sort through the truth, semi-truth, myths and flat-out errors that pervade the pro audio industry. The fundamentals of acoustics (and physics) do not change, although some “experts” try to prove otherwise. New equipment, toys and theories come and go, but the basic building blocks of… View this story

    Previously (here and here), we’ve been looking at sound on a “microscopic” level, examining particle motion as sound propagates through air. This time, let’s look at a larger picture of sound wave propagation. A vibrating object will disturb the surrounding air medium causing localized changes in pressure and particle displacement with the transference of acoustical energy in the form of a sound wave. Waves can be broadly classified as being either transverse or longitudinal. The distinction for each wave type… View this story
