## The Theory of Sound, Volume 2The Nobel Laureate's classic sums up all research in the field prior to 1877, then presents Rayleigh's own original contributions. Volume Two covers aerial vibrations, vibrations in tubes, reflection and refraction of plane waves, general equations, theory of resonators, Laplace's functions and acoustics, spherical sheets of air, vibration of solid bodies, and facts and theories of audition. |
