The Science of Sound is a widely recognized textbook in the field. This book provides an excellent introduction to acoustics for students without a strong background in college physics or mathematics. Emphasis is placed on understanding the phenomena of sound, and a wide variety of topics are discussed.
In the Third Edition, Richard Moore and Paul Wheeler join Tom Rossing in updating The Science of Sound to include a wide range of important technological developments in the field of acoustics. New exercises and review questions have been added to the end of each chapter to help students study the material.
