Summary: Fundamentals of Sound with Applications to Speech and Hearing presents a clear and precise treatment of the physics of sound while using a level of math suitable for readers in the speech, language, hearing, and health sciences.

This text provides undergraduate students with an understanding of the science of sound. Simple mathematics, graphics, and qualitative descriptions are demonstrated to explain wave concepts, spectrograms, intensity, and decibels.
Concepts are applied to the physics of speech and hearing.

The graphical approach is supplemented by animations available on an associated Web site containing a complete tutorial with questions that the student can answer. Hints and textual references are given if the wrong answer is chosen and a complete explanation of the question is provided.

Features
  • Appropriate math level throughout the text facilitates student understanding.
  • Graphical analysis offers rigor without overwhelming math sophistication.
  • Applications to speech and hearing sciences, especially in Chapters 8, 9, and 12, make topics clear to the communication disorders student.
  • "Worked Out Examples" scattered in each chapter expand student knowledge.
  • Tutorial questions are presented in "Answer This" boxes with reference to the Web for the answers.
  • Exercises at end of each chapter provide a student learning activity. Answers to selected exercises are provided in an appendix.
