  • Speaker: James Liu (U-M Physics)
  • Host Department: Physics
  • Date: 10/13/2012
  • Time: 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

  • Location: 170 & 182 Dennison Building

  • Description:

    What is music, and what distinguishes music from noise? Physics tells us that musical tones are carried through the air by sound waves. We will examine the physics of sound waves and see how musical tones are produced by various instruments. We will see how the interplay between physics, mathematics and music enhances the beauty of all three subjects.
