The Physics of Music and Color by Leon Gunther

By Leon Gunther

The Physics of track and colour bargains with matters, track and colour - sound and lightweight within the bodily goal feel - in one quantity. the elemental underlying actual rules of the 2 topics overlap drastically: either tune and colour are manifestations of wave phenomena, and commonalities exist as to the creation, transmission, and detection of sound and lightweight. This booklet aids readers in learning either topics, which contain approximately the total gamut of the basic legislation of classical in addition to sleek physics. the place conventional introductory physics and classes are styled in order that the elemental ideas are brought first and are then utilized at any place attainable, this booklet relies on a motivational procedure: it introduces a topic by way of demonstrating a suite of comparable phenomena, tough readers through calling for a actual foundation for what's observed.

The Physics of tune and colour is written at point appropriate for college kids with none clinical history, requiring simply easy algebra and a passing familiarity with trigonometry. It comprises a number of difficulties on the finish of every bankruptcy that aid the reader to totally clutch the subject.
