Presents a highly accessible, practical approach to acoustics for students with no more than a basic background in physics. Relates basic theory to everyday acoustical experiences, using physical explanations to back up mathematical derivations and provide a clear grasp of important phenomena. The basic theory of vibrations and waves underlying acoustical phenomena and instrumentation provides the basis for all practical work with room acoustics, environmental noise and sound reproduction systems. Various wave phenomena and their mathematical descriptions are logically developed to enhance student understanding. Also included is a simplified approach to sound and measurement. Provides knowledge of the latest developments in the field through references to the latest equipment and concepts. Contains numerous worked examples and realistic problems, suggestions for lab activities, and clear chapter summaries.
