PHYS 108 - The Physics of Music

(4 credits)
Prerequisite: Mathematical Reasoning core curriculum requirement (CMAR)
Music represents a unique discipline where “art” and “science” meet together and interact on equal footing. This course covers generation and transmission of sound, the ear’s response to sound, and sound generated from various musical instruments. There will also be an introduction to room acoustics, sound synthesis, sound analysis and basic fundamentals of musical construction. Lecture and lab will be combined, meeting for a total of six hours per week. Offered either semester. (CNSL; CQUR)
