Sound: Crash Course in Physics


How does Sound WorkIf you don’t already know about the excellent YouTube channel “CrashCourse“, they offer easy to absorb videos on complex science, physics, history, politics, psychology and more. This one is about sound and in collaboration with PBS. It has nothing to with guitar specifically, but of course, as musicians, we are involved in the art of sound so I hope you fine it interesting. Here’s their blurb: “We learn a lot about our surroundings thanks to sound. But… what is it exactly? Sound, that is. What is sound? And how does it travel? And what is this Doppler Effect that we’ve heard so much about? In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini goes over some of the basics (and some of the not so basics) of the Physics of Sound.”
