Propagation Sound is generated and propagated in an
object that must have mass AND elasticity.
object NO EXCEPTIONS! Sound Generation and
Propagation Two forces to determine sound vibration
– Inertia Newton’s Inertial Law: All bodies remain at rest or in a state of
uniform motion unless another force acts in opposition Magnitude of inertia is directly proportional to the mass: thus
mass is a measure of inertia – Elasticity Sound generation and
