    This online book uses a series of tutorials based on interactive simulations and animations to explore the physics of sound. Students develop their understanding of waves through guided questions and exercises based on these simulations. An EPub edition is also available in the Apple iTunes store: ISBN •Observe and compare how sound travels through solids, liquids, and air. •Use knowledge of the physics of sound to solve simple sound challenges. •Acquire vocabulary associated with the physics of sound. • Exercise language, social studies, and math skills in the context of the physics of sound.

    Sound travels approximately five times more quickly in water than in air, making it more difficult to localize. At the same time, sound is perhaps easier to sense in water, because there is a critical region around a vibrating source, called the "near-field", in which the amplitude of the particle vibrations of the surrounding medium exceeds. Only buy them if you are up for some challenge and have time to study extra topics. These might be tough for you and you might need extra help in studying these books. Foundation Science Physics for Class - 9 by H.C. Verma This is one of my favorite Physics book for class 9. Most of the book is within the limits of CBSE syllabus.

    The correlation between the absolute intensity of a sound wave and its decibel level is shown in Table 1, along with examples of sounds at each level. When the defining level of 0 decibel (10 watt per square metre) is taken to be at the threshold of hearing for a sound wave with a frequency of 1, hertz. For sound waves, the disturbance is a change in air pressure, perhaps created by the oscillating cone inside a speaker. For earthquakes, there are several types of disturbances, including disturbance of Earth’s surface and pressure disturbances under the surface.

This is an outstanding reference work for scientists and engineers in the field of underwater acoustics. The book is a milestone work on undersea sound propagation resulting from the World War II studies. It discusses transmission loss, target strength and echoes from subs/surface ships, sound transmission through wakes.5/5(1).

PHYSICS OF SOUND IN THE SEA is the distillate of the brightest, most creative minds in the underwater acoustics community during World War II.

The primary wartime effort to understand the underwater acoustic environment for the purpose of submarine and antisubmarine warfare was directed by the Subsurface Warfare Division of the National Defense Research Committee.

Acoustics is an interesting subject, at all levels, and very important of course due to the human love for music and the need for high fidelity sound reproduction. This book is written for a readership that does not have expertise in physics or mathematics beyond the high school level/5(9).
