Summary

The Science of Sound is widely recognized as the leading textbook in the field. It provides an excellent introduction to acoustics for students without college physics or a strong background in mathematics. In the Third Edition, Richard Moore and Paul Wheeler join Tom Rossing in updating The Science of Sound to include a wide range of important technological developments in the field of acoustics. New exercises and review questions have been added to the end of each chapter to help students study the material.

Features :

  • NEW! Four new chapters on computer music introduce students to exciting modern trends in the creation of sound.
  • NEW! A new section in every chapter, "Experiments for Home, Laboratory and Classroom Demonstrations," includes a wealth of rewarding and informative experiments to help students understand core concepts through practical experience and real-world examples.
  • NEW! Over 400 new review questions have been added.
  • REVISED! The Electroacoustics section (originally titled The Electrical Production of Sound) has been revised to include recent developments in the field.
  • REVISED! Every chapter has been thoroughly revised to clarify tricky concepts and refine explanations.
  • The book equips students with the fundamental physics early on in the book, allowing them to explore a wide range of topics in later chapters.
