What is Acoustics?

It is a science relating to the sense of hearing or to the theory of sound. It is thus a subject that specialises in areas that relate to the sense of hearing, or auditory sense. In a more technical way it means the science that operates in situations where sound vibrations are of paramount importance, and therefore where sound can be, and is necessary, to manipulate and manoeuvre. At its most elementary level this can mean the public addressing system at your local railway or bus stations. At its other end, it includes auditoria where classical music is performed live. In the later case, there is no use of sound amplifiers. The auditorium is designed with advanced acoustics so that the live performance carried over to the person in the last row with equal felicity as the first person next to the performers. Thus the acoustics includes architecture, besides speakers and amplifiers.
