What is Waving and Why? The Anatomy of the Wave Equation – Part 2

By Dr. Eugene Patronis

In the first article in this series we learned the compositional properties of the gaseous mixture known as dry air as it exists under standard atmospheric conditions. We also explored the thermodynamic properties of air and the behavior of air while undergoing compression or expansion in either the isothermal or adiabatic process. We concluded the article with a sample calculation wherein the concept of acoustic pressure was introduced and used in the calculation of acoustic potential energy.
