    similar treatment program that differed from the LSVT only in that it emphasized high respiratory effort over high respiratory-phonatory effort. The results of this comparison showed that while LSVT resulted in greater improvements in sound pressure level (SPL) over the alternative program, the other program still contributed to patient improvement in vocal loudness. Since vocal loudness was able to be improved without the phonatory emphasis highlighted in LSVT program, the researchers wished to…

    Hz. If a material has an NRC of 0, it will reflect sound. If it has an NRC of 1, it is perfectly absorptive. These numbers can be converted into a percentage, therefore ranging from 0% to 100% in absorptiveness. (Noise Reduction Coefficients (NRC) Ratings for Common Building Materials & Products, n.d.) In order to soundproof a room, one must keep in mind that blocking an air path using a regular wall, ceiling, or door will not entirely reduce the sound. Vibrations will continue to travel…

    Sam Pollard The Senses (Journal) Audition A busy street. A jet in the sky. A child crying. These are just some of the millions of sounds that you encounter on a daily basis. But, how do these sounds go from one object to another? How do our ears work? How do we perceive sound and do we perceive sound differently than others? Even though we cannot see the inside of our ears to find out what is going on, we do know that hearing is triggered by certain physical stimuli. Pressure waves are one thing…

    back in. This creates an area of low pressure within the flask. When the stopper is quickly pulled out of the flask, the air rushes back into the flask because the pressure of the atmosphere is higher than the pressure inside the flask. If the stopper is pulled out with sufficient force and swiftness, a “popping” sound is produced that corresponds to the resonant frequency of the air column inside the flask (Henderson, n.d.). This sound is a longitudinal standing wave, or a wave that, if it were…
