Acoustics, Waves and Oscillations
This book presents the theory of waves and oscillations and various applications of acoustics in a logical and simple form. The physical principles have been explained with necessary mathematical formulation and supported by experimental layout wherever possible. Incorporating the classical view point all aspects of acoustic waves and oscillations have been discussed together with detailed elaboration of modern technological applications of sound. A separate chapter on ultrasonics emphasises the importance of this branch of science in fundamental and applied research. The book is expected to present to its readers a comprehensive presentation of the subject-matter and at the same time to guide him for independent thinking on some new lines of investigation.
