With clear text and easy-to-find supplies, these experiments invite readers to explore the scientific principles of sound, which include finding out what kinds of matter conduct sound, locating the sources of sound, and matching vibrations.
This title in the IN TOUCH WITH BASIC SCIENCE series takes a look at many interesting aspects of sound. Readers learn what sound and sound waves are and explore resonance, music, the speed of sound, and how to reduce unwanted noise. Interesting hands-on activities throughout the book help reinforce the concepts.
This book describes how it’s possible to hear and feel sound, how sound travels and moves, as well as dimensions of space. It discusses making sounds and noises, waves, properties of sound and sound effects. It also includes sounds of music.
Can you feel the vibrations made by sounds? How does sound travel through air? Are two ears better than one? How do musical instruments produce sound? The exciting experiments in this book will unlock the mysteries of sound and music. Some will even give you ideas for your own science fair. Learn how to make musical notes, how we hear, and much more. All you need are some simple materials, most of which can be found around your home, school, or neighborhood. So grab a candle, milk carton, and radio and discover that physics is fantastic!
