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-13: 978-0-9905805-5-3.
Introduction to Sound
The physics of sound lends itself particularly well to examples, demonstrations and student participation in experiments. There are thousands of YouTube videos of interesting sound phenomena and dozens of simulations related to the physics of sound and music. This book was created from trying to provide access to these resources in a single source, first from a web page, then as interactive simulations on web pages and finally as this interactive textbook.
