    Physics was known as natural philosophy until the late 18th century. By the 19th century, physics was realised as a discipline distinct from philosophy and the other sciences. Physics, as with the rest of science, relies on philosophy of science and its "scientific . This Physics Tutorial discusses the nature of sound, its characteristic behaviors, and its association with the operation of musical instruments. Attention is given to both the purely conceptual aspect of sound waves and to the mathematical treatment of the same topic.

    The Physics of Music. Music is the creation of complex sequences of sounds that have a pleasent effect. For some currently inexplicable reason, when more than one frequency is heard simulatanously, it can have an a profoundly pleasent or amazingly disconcerting effect. about the viewpoint of music and especially guitars. This way of thinking has helped the author to learn many topics in engineering in practise by making a concrete reference to the technology of music. Therefore, this book is a docu-mentation of different topics in physics, music and engineering, all connected by that one bass guitar.

Sound is produced when something vibrates. The vibrating body causes the medium (water, air, etc.) around it to vibrate. Vibrations in air are called traveling longitudinal waves, which we can hear.

Sound waves consist of areas of high and low pressure called compressions and rarefactions, respectively.
