DOC: BASIC ACOUSTICS AND ACOUSTIC FILTERS


Normally the pressure fluctuations that are heard as sound are produced in air, but it is also possible for sound to travel through other acoustic media. So, for instance, when you are swimming under water, it is possible to hear muf- fled shouts of the people above the water, and to hear noise as you blow bubbles in the water....
