View Resource Acoustics Laboratories: Active Noise Control Demo

The Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Department of Mechanical Engineering offers the Active Noise Control Experiment. The page contains an explanation of the experiment and the download file to carry it out. The experiment demonstrates how active noise control cancels a sound wave by sending a single frequency wave to the right computer speaker, which represents the noise to be...

View Resource Music Acoustics

The Music Acoustics Web site is maintained by the University of New South Wales School of Physics. General topics covered include what a decibel is, what interference beats are, what a sound spectrum is, what acoustic impedance is, and others. Specific instrument questions are also answered, such as waves in strings, flute and clarinet acoustics, Helmholz resonance, and pipes and harmonics. This...

View Resource The Physics of Sound

This Topic in Depth focuses on the physics of sound waves and its applications in other science realms. The first four educational Web sites concentrate on sound wave properties and musical instruments. Dan Russell, a professor of Applied Physics at Ketting University, created the first site (1) to provide students animated images of sounds and vibrations produced by instruments such as...

View Resource Sound Matters

Sound Matters is a new podcast dedicated to the science, history, and art of sound. The podcast is hosted by Tim Hinman, an artist and a producer for Danish National Radio. In each thirty-minute podcast, Hinman explores one aspect relating to sound and how we listen to it. For example, in Episode #15, In Search of the Missing Sound, Hinman explores the history of devices that record sound and the...
