To give the student a thorough comprehension of how sound waves arise and
The wave equation and fundamental wave-theoretical terms, definitions of pressure,
intensity, impedance, standard units, decibel scales.
Simple fields: plane waves, spherical waves, cylindrical waves, free fields, and diffuse
fields. Absorption, reflection, refraction,
diffraction, transmission with loss.
