    process of converting the acoustic energy of sound into some form in which it can be permanently stored and reproduced at any time. In 1855 the inventor Leon Scott constructed a device called a phon autograph that recorded tracings of the vibrations of sound. Thomas Edison, starting about 1877, made great improvements in mechanical sound recording and was the first inventor to achieve the actually audible reproduction of recorded sound. The greatest advances, however, were made after the adoptio...

    Sound-On-Disc: From Inception 'til Death From the Kinetophone to the Vita phone, the sound-on-disc format dominated the pioneering stage of sound in movies. For the first time ever, people were able to hear sound synchronized with the images on the screen, and the revolution had begun-the talkies were here to stay. It was the sound-on-disc format that helped create many of Hollywood's "talkie" classics, including The Jazz Singer and The Singing Fool. However, another format, sound-on-film, would...

  • Ultrasound Quick Project Sound Frequency Waves
    388 words
    Ultrasound - Quick Project Ultrasounds are sound waves with frequency beyond the human limits, therefore humans are unable to hear them. It even travels at exactly the same speed as sound in any medium. Humans can hear sound within the frequency range of about 20 to 20, 000 Hz, so any sound above 20 k Hz is ultrasound. Ultrasound or ultrasonography is a medical imaging technique that uses high frequency sound waves and their echoes. The technique is similar to the echolocation used by bats, whal...

    Sounds are produced by the vibrations of material objects, and travel as a result of momentum transfer when air molecules collide. Our 'subjective impression' about the frequency of a sound is called pitch. High pitch has high vibration frequency, while low pitch has a low vibration frequency. A pure musical tone consists of a single pitch or frequency. However, most musical tones are "complex summations" of various pure frequencies - one characteristic frequency, called the fundamental, and a ...

    Cochlear Implants A cochlear implant is an electronic device that restores hearing for people anywhere from hard of hearing to the profoundly deaf. The cochlear implant is surgically implanted under the skin behind the ear. The surgeon puts the electrode array inside the inner ear and than inside the cochlea. The implant works by a device outside the ear, which rests on the skin behind the ear. It is held upright by a magnet and is also connected by a lead to a sound professor. What happens when...

    Resonance and Sound... Physics and Music Since sound is the medium of music, most of the physics of music is the physics of sound. It's important to remember that sound waves are compression waves. You can imitate a compression wave by stretching out a slinky (you do have a slinky, don't you? ) and flicking your finger against a coil at the end. Sound waves are not like the waves on the ocean or the waves you get by waving a stretched-out rope. Take a tuning fork (you do have a tuning fork, don...

    Decibels are the units of measurement used to describe voltage and power levels. The abbreviation for a decibel is dB (Sauvala). Some decibel comparisons are: 10 dB is about as loud as someone whispering, 70 dB is a shouted conversation, and 110 dB is as loud as a jet engine ("Sound"). Decibels are the expressions of ratios. Some formulas for decibels are power = 10 log (P 1/P 2) (P 1 = power 1 and P 2 = power 2) and voltage = 20 log (v 2/v 1) (V 2 = voltage 2, V 1 = voltage 2) (). Decibels are...

    How do sound and image combine to make meaning and what other potential functions of sound are there? Motion pictures and television are audio-visual mediums and so of course engage both our visual and aural senses. The meaning and emotion of a piece is commonly thought to come from the image and that the sound at best just duplicates the meanings from the image. For example Aaron Copland has said that a composer can do no more than' make potent through music the film's dramatic and emotional va...

  • Sound Waves Wave Intensity Ear
    399 words
    Sound Waves Waves are disturbances that travel through a space while changing its matter. A sound wave is what allows us to hear sounds. It is created by vibrations, which are made by the movement of matter. Sound waves must travel through a solid, a liquid, or a gas. The more tight the particles, the faster the wave will travel. This would mean that a sound wave travels fastest through solids and slowest through gases. The speed that it travels through a liquid would come somewhere in between ...

    In this chapter we studied sound waves. In this paper you will read about how the ear works, how acoustics work and how sound waves are used in real life in medicine and music. Some basic characteristics of sound waves. Sound waves are detectable to the human ear when the range is within 20 to 20, 000 Hz. Sound waves are compressional waves also know as longitudinal waves. Sound waves require a medium to travel through. A medium is a substance or state of matter that the waves flow through. All...

    Sound is part of our everyday lives. Just like we have eyes for, we are given ears for hearing sound. We rarely take the time to think about the characteristics of sound and the ways that they are made. The basis for an understanding of sound and hearing is the physics of waves. Sound is a wave, which is created by vibrating objects and spread through a medium from one location to another. In this paper, we will look at the nature, properties and behaviors of sound waves. A wave can be describe...
