9:30-10:30 a.m. Duane Physics G1B30
Join Professor Steven Pollock to learn more about the physics of music and sound!
What is sound? What is happening around you (and inside you) when you play the guitar, strike a gong, blow on a bottle, pop a balloon, crack a bullwhip... How quiet can we make a room, how loud can we shout? Who can hear better, kids or parents? Why might that be? How could you ever hope to measure "loudness" or "pitch"? And what would happen if you sucked all the air out of steel barrel!? Join award winning Professor Steven Pollock to learn about all of this and more!
