This is an interactive, on-line eText on the physics of sound. It is designed as an introductory course text and requires no previous physics exposure; I am using it in my physics of sound course for non-science majors in place of a hardcopy text. Brief introductions to physics concepts are provided as they are needed (and can be skipped if they are familiar to the reader). There is a little bit of algebra involved but not much.
If you see any errors or have ideas for topics that should be included, please contact me: email@example.com You are welcome to use anything you find here although a few of the images are restricted by the Wikimedia Commons license.
If you are interested in more detailed explanations of wave behavior you may wish to see my eText/tutorial on Waves.
