Format : DVD
An acoustic engineer describes how geometric equations relating to size, volume, and echo time are used to define how the human ear recognizes sound. Learn from an audiologist who uncovers the inner workings of the ear and shows students that the loudness of sound is more complex than sound “power” alone.

This lesson will challenge students to:
•Understand how ears process sound.
•Learn how pitch is related to the sound power needed to hear a sound.
•Identify how the size of a room and the material used to make its walls can affect the way sound “acts.”

Rights granted include: a) life of media audiovisual use, b) public performance, c) campus or building closed circuit and digital/video-on-demand transmission.
