Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Define basic knowledge of classical physics - oscillations, waves. Name the basic acoustic quantities. To characterize the physiological acoustics. Present knowledge of building acoustics, room acoustics, acoustic materials. Characterize electroacoustic transducers. Reproduce the acquired knowledge and skills in practice.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations
Experimental work in labs


Object belongs to the category of creating the professional profile of the student. It builds on the student's knowledge of basic physics course. These skills are further developed in lectures on the dissemination of mechanical waves in the air and spread of mechanical waves in the material. The acquired knowledge is then used in practical applications. Exercises are practical. The practical exercises are theoretical findings interpreted the roles of physiological acoustics, building acoustics, room acoustics.

Subject syllabus:

Abstract: The course complements the Physics I - Mechanics, molecular physics. Expands students' knowledge in the field of mechanical vibrations and waves. Curriculum: First Physical Acoustics - studying the mode of origin and propagation. It also deals with the reflection and absorption in different materials. Second Musical acoustics - exploring sounds and combinations of the demands of the music. Third Physiological acoustics - deals with the emergence of sound in the voice organ man and his perception of hearing. 4th Building acoustics - Examines good sound propagation in building materials and rooms. 5th Electroacoustics - deals with the recording, reproduction and dissemination of sound using an electric current.
