Course content
To present and to deduce relationships describing continuous, damped and forced mechanical oscillations. To present and to deduce relationships valid for mechanical wave motion including interference phenomena, the Doppler principle, dynamic wave equation and its application on longitudinal and transversal waves in a thin rod. To present basic relationships concerning sound propagation, define acoustic aberration, speed and pressure. To define sound intensity, sound intensity levels, objective and subjective volume, loudness levels. To acquaint the students with physical processes in classical and electronic musical instruments and introduce them to analog and digital sound recording and reproduction.
