Sound Waves

Our Sound Waves unit addresses the topic of the physics of sound.  The set of Video Tutorials below lays a solid foundation for understanding their generation by a vibrating object, their properties and behaviors, and their connection to the operation of musical instruments.

Just so know, you've entered the Construction Zone. This is the section of the website that is currently being built.  We will proceed in order from the top of the list to the bottom. When a video is completed, we will provide the link.  Video titles without links are videos that we plan to eventually create. The videos should be completed by the end of December of 2023. The best way to get the newest content is to subscribe to our YouTube Channel.
