We have worked with professional science curriculum developers to develop extensive innovative resources for key stages 2,3,4 and 5 Human-Computer Interaction: The Agency Perspective (Studies in Computational Intelligence) Such was the case for Stanford physicist Hari Manoharan, who saw not a failure, but an opportunity, in part because, as he said in the official press release, "This revolutionized our conception of the fundamental connections between shape and sound." And it could even be relevant to spectroscopy, "because it introduced an ambiguity." As systems get smaller and smaller, and move into the nanoscale realm, quantum effects hold sway, and that tiny degree of ambiguity -- unimportant in the classical world -- suddenly could have a significant effect on, say, nano-electronic systems of the future Inverse Acoustic and Electromagnetic Scattering Theory (Applied Mathematical Sciences) To minimize the noise pollution manufacturers are working on creating quieter cars WSO Basic Science Concepts and Application: Principles and Practices of Water Supply Operations What about the possibility to provide a sharp and fast drum?

We can hear sounds from about 15 Hz to 20 kHz (1 kHz = 1000 Hz). The lowest note on the standard guitar is E at about 83 Hz, but a bass guitar can play down to 41 Hz. The orginary guitar can play notes with fundamental frequencies above 1 kHz. Human ears are most sensitive to sounds between 1 and 4 kHz - about two to four octaves above middle C ISO 13565-1:1996, Geometrical Product Specifications (GPS) - Surface texture: Profile method; Surfaces having stratified functional properties - Part 1: Filtering and general measurement conditions ISO 13565-1:1996, Geometrical Product.

Most people have not heard the equally amusing sound that results from breathing sulfur hexafluoride. Sulfur hexafluoride has the additional property that, since it is a high density gas, it tends to remain in the lungs for a long time, and thus the effect on the voice persists much longer USW Area Analogs

Typically, the S/N is lowest either: (1) at the back of the classroom, where the level of the teacher�s voice has fallen to its minimum value; or (2) near the noise source, where the noise level is at its maximum, such as near a wall air conditioning unit. Studies have shown that, in classrooms having a signal-to- noise ratio of less than +10 dB, speech intelligibility is significantly degraded for children with average hearing ref.: Vibration of Laminated Shells download online Yet another type, shown below, uses chambers having different depths. Note that for diffusion to be effective, you need to treat more than just a few small areas. When walls are parallel, adding diffusion to only a small percentage of the surface area will not reduce objectionable echoes nearly as well as treating one or both walls more completely , source: IEC 60243-2 Ed. 2.0 b:2001, Electric strength of insulating materials - Test methods - Part 2: Additional requirements for tests using direct voltage IEC 60243-2 Ed. 2.0 b:2001, Electric. There is extensive research being done in the field of sound dampening to meet these popular needs today. The complete nature of a wave's interaction with a material is incredibly complex, and can not be fully understood by any person except professionals, so this leaves many minute questions open at the end of the experiment. Many things had to be researched prior to the beginning of this experiment as I was unfamiliar with wave mathematics, and had done very little work with sound its self in the past Satellite Communications and download online

Passing trains and subways aren’t only loud, but their surroundings rattle and vibrate as they pass, and part of the thrill of a rock concert is feeling the whole auditorium shake. “There’s a strong interplay between vibrations through the medium that you hear through—air or water—and the physical objects around you,” says Cohen-Tanugi. “It’s perfectly conceivable to absorb that movement and glean useable energy ISO 13473-1:1997, Characterization of pavement texture by use of surface profiles - Part 1: Determination of Mean Profile Depth ISO 13473-1:1997, Characterization of. The ear is an extremely clever organ, consisting of a collection of tiny bones, tubes and membranes (namely the ear drum) which process the sound and send it to the brain. The funnel-like shape of the ear is effective at collecting the sound wave and filtering it through the ear passage, where it causes vibrations of the ear drum Simulation of the Noise Transmission through Automotive Door Seals (Wissenschaftliche Reihe Fahrzeugtechnik Universität Stuttgart) We designed and fabricated an on-chip integrated metamaterial with a refractive index of zero in the optical regime.

The sound waves from the beam, upon striking a fish, are reflected back and picked up by organs in the skull of the dolphin, thus enabling it to locate the fish. In the 1960�s Ben Franklin invented the first American made musical instrument, the glass harmonica (Miley, 2).� Yet, �the underlying physics of the �armonica� or the glass harmonica remains mysterious� (Bunce, 1).� The glass harmonica works much the same way as rubbing a finger around a wine glass.� The pitches are altered only by changing the amount of water in the glass or by grinding away glass from the bottom or the rim (Bunce, 1).� Since we already know the relationship between the size of the bowl and the pitch, (otherwise constructing the glass harmonica would be nearly impossible) I am more concerned with the relationship between the pitch and the amount of water in the glass.� This is what I will endeavor to discover. ����������� When one rubs their finger around a glass, the glass vibrates similarly to the string on a violin vibrates when it is rubbed with a bow (Sabbeth, 7).� As the bow glides across the violin string, it pulls the string with it due to friction.� �As the string is displaced to one side, the tension in it results in a restoring force tending to pull the string back to its original position (Backus, 167).� This, of course, happens several times a second and is what causes the string to vibrate.� If we were to imagine the string is the glass and the bow is our finger, we might have good idea why rubbing a glass produces a note.� Since I can not adjust the tension like I could the string of a violin, I will add and subtract water to change the pitch. ����������� Sound travels through water at approximately 1,440 meters per second while it travels through glass at approximately 4,500 meters per second (Giancoli, 309).� Since the velocity of sound is much greater through glass, a glass with no water in it is going to vibrate at a relatively high frequency.� As more water is added, the vibration of the glass is going to slow down therefore producing a lower note.� I hypothesize the amount of water needed to go from one note to the next, will be even intervals, directly proportional to the pitch. [Table of Contents] In order to test my hypothesis, I used a relatively simple set up that took very little time to prepare.� Sugar, water, measuring cup (that shows ounces), two sizes of the same wine glass, a tuner, a pen, and paper are the only materials that I used.� I started by putting a very small amount of water in the larger of the two wine glasses (about one ounce of water), because there needs to be some water in the glass for it to produce a tone.� The finger that is going to rub the rim of the glass also needs to be wet in order for the glass to produce a tone.� This can be easily taken care of by quickly dipping it in water before continuing.� Next I turned the tuner on and placed it near the glass so it would pick up this pitch.� I chose the closest pitch to what the tuner was currently picking up and adjusted the water level in the glass until that note was perfectly in tune (in my case a G#).� I recorded this note and then measured the amount of water in the glass by pouring it into a measuring cup.� I recorded this amount next to the note in both cups and ounces (the water amount is in two units purely for backup purposes so I could make sure I did not write down a value incorrectly). ����������� Continuing on, I replaced the water in the glass and added additional water until the next pitch was perfectly in tune (in my case a G).� I then recorded this note and the amount of water in the glass that it took to produce it.� Note: the pitch gets lower as more water is added.� I continued on like this until the glass was almost completely full and I had recorded nine or ten different pitches.� I also used the same procedure with a smaller, but similarly shaped, glass.� Since I am not endeavoring to discover the relationship between the size of the glass and the pitch, I used the smaller glass only to support any findings evident with the larger glass. ����������� Later, after pondering the results of the experiment, I decided I wanted to try this procedure using something that had a different density than water.� Since it was easily accessible, I used sugar water. �I started with about two cups of water and heated it to almost a boil.� I then added sugar until it no longer dissolved (was saturated) and used the sugar water in place of the plain water in the aforementioned procedure with the larger glass. [top] ����������� Before I started this experiment I was worried that the speed at which I moved my finger around the top of the glass would have an impact on the pitch.� This could have been a real unfortunate uncertainty since it would be extremely difficult to gage how fast I was moving my finger across the glass and even harder to keep it consistent.� However, I tested this when I started to take data and the speed of my finger had no apparent affect on the pitch the glass produced.� Also, water on the outside of the glass had no notable effect on the on the pitch of the glass.� This was helpful because when making small adjustments to the amount of water in the glass, water would often spill and drip down the outside and it did not become imperative that I stop a wipe it off every time. ����������� Some uncertainties that did occur were in measuring the amounts of water in the wine glass.� First it was rather difficult to pour the water from the glass to the measuring cup.� Because of the way the wine glass was shaped, the water often ran down the side of the glass instead of pouring directly into the measuring cup.� After some practice at this I became quite proficient, however, and consequently kept this uncertainty to a minimum.� Second, once the liquid I was trying to measure exceeded one cup, I had to resort to using two different measuring cups because I did not have a larger one that was marked at each ounce.� Yet I do not think the uncertainty margin is very large here either since I was extremely careful to measure exactly one cup into the first measuring container and the second container I used for measuring was marked at every Tablespoon, more accurate that the first one.� Finally, other factors that could have contributed to the uncertainty margin were the innumerable small sounds that could have been present in my house when I was conducting the experiment.� For instance, the hum of the heater the refrigerator lull, or a light bulb buzz could have all contributed slightly to the pitch the tuner was picking up and consequently caused it to read something slightly different from the true pitch of the glass.� Fortunately all of the uncertainties that I have been able to think of thus far are relatively small.� I therefore state that my measured values could not have been off by more than a half of an ounce on either side as seen below for the larger glass.
