    The Anatomy of the Ear. Outer Ear The part of the ear you can see funnels sound waves down the ear canal, a tunnel about cm long. There, sound waves strike the eardrum, a tightly stretched membrane between the outer and middle ear. The eardrum vibrates at the same frequency as the sound waves striking Size: 1MB.

    "Mother father deaf" is the phrase commonly used within the Deaf community to refer to hearing children of deaf parents. These children grow up between two cultures, the Hearing and the Deaf, forever balancing the worlds of sound and silence, as a sense of self and family forms. Paul Preston is one of these children, and in this book he takes us to the place where Deaf and Hearing 2/5(1).

I read primarily for enjoyment and relaxation and occasionally enjoy a challenging read.4/5.

Sound: A Memoir of Hearing Lost and Found by Bella Bathurst is a highly recommended memoir of a young woman who lost her hearing, then regained it. In Bella Bathurst was down to 30% of normal hearing.

She had been slowly losing her hearing for six years. This began her twelve year journey of deafness and what she learned about her experience/5(25).

The major aim of this book is to introduce the ways in which scientists approach and think about a phenomenon -- hearing -- that intersects three quite different disciplines: the physics of sound sources and the propagation of sound through air and other materials, the anatomy and physiology of the transformation of the physical sound into neural activity in the Pages: Lavishly illustrated account of the physical nature of sound, the structure and function of the human ear, the evolution of hearing and the practical and esthetic uses of sound.

Get this from a library. Sound and hearing. [Charles Gramet; Leslie S Haywood] -- Explains the principles behind the production of sound, its transmission for communication, recording and reproduction, and how the voice produces sound and ears receive it. Sound is defined as something that can be heard.

It is a wave that is a series of vibrations traveling through a medium, especially those within the range of frequencies that can be perceived by the human ear. Sound can travel through many types of mediums, for example: gasses, liquids and solids. The Best Ears in the World: A First Look at Sound and Hearing.

However, some hearing-impaired people learn to speak by reading lips, and imitating the way our mouths move when we speak. Sound and hearing. [S S Stevens; Fred Warshofsky; Time-Life Books.] -- Explains the physical nature of sound and the way in which ear and brain responds to vibration.

Sound by Bella Bathurst is a true story regarding the author's own personal tale of becoming deaf in her mid-twenties and how she was able to regain her hearing, of course in this it's not just her story that is being told, here we have the stories of other people who could hear and then lost it, but unlike the author they couldn't regain their hearing due to many 4/5.

This engaging activity book shows young scientists how every movement makes a sound, even if they cannot hear it, and that sound, like light, travels in waves.

Many of the experiments hit a musical note-they include making a tuning fork, a stringed instrument, and a set of straw pipes. Fun fact boxes and a troubleshooting guide create a fully grounded experience of the science of sound.

A common complex sound used to study hearing is noise. Noise contains all possible frequency components, and the amplitude of the noise varies randomly over time.

A noise is said to be “white noise” if it contains all frequency components each at the same average sound by: 1. For a person with normal hearing, the faintest sound that can be heard at a frequency of $\mathrm{Hz}$ has a pressure amplitude of about $ \times 10^{-5} \mathrm{Pa}$.

Calculate the (a) intensity; (b) sound intensity level; (c) displacement amplitude of this sound wave at $20^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$.

[S S Stevens; Fred Warshofsky; Time-Life Books.] -- Lavishly illustrated account of the physical nature of sound, the structure and function of the human ear, the evolution of hearing and the practical and esthetic uses of sound.

A MHz sound wave travels through a pregnant woman's abdomen and is reflected from the fetal heart wall of her unborn baby. The heart wall is moving toward the sound receiver as the heart beats. The reflected sound is then mixed with the transmitted sound, and 72 beats per second are detected.

The speed of sound in body tissue is m/s.Example (Section $)$ showed that for sound waves in air with frequency $\mathrm{Hz}$, a displacement amplitude of $ \times 10^{-8} \mathrm{m}$ produces a pressure amplitude of $ \times 10^{-2}$ Pa.

Water at $20^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$ has a bulk modulus of $ \times 10^{9} \mathrm{Pa}$ and the speed of sound in water at this .In this fabulous unit, students learn everything they need to know about sound — and more. This highly practical and simple-to-use unit is broken into three parts.

First, students participate in meaningful activities associated with the core theme of each lesson. This Life Science lesson provides a teacher and student section with a variety of reading passages, activities.
