This laboratory course gives an introduction
to the phenomena of acoustics, particularly aspects that are important in the
production and perception of music. The physics of sound is covered in depth,
and characteristics of acoustic and electronic instruments are discussed.
Mathematical and laboratory techniques are introduced as needed. No specific
science or mathematics background beyond algebra is assumed. This course has
four Lab options.

Concepts and techniques of vector and tensor analysis,
line and surface integration, and complex function analysis will be developed
in this course. These mathematical methods are particularly useful in
thermodynamics and electromagnetism. Prerequisite:
Mathematics 142.
