This course introduces acoustics by using the concept of impedance. The course starts with vibrations and waves, demonstrating how vibration can be envisaged as a kind of wave, mathematically and physically. They are realized by one-dimensional examples, which provide mathematically simplest but clear enough physical insights. Then the part 1 ends with explaining waves on a flat surface of discontinuity, demonstrating how propagation characteristics of waves change in space where there is a distributed impedance mismatch.

TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRO TO ACOUSTICS (PART 1)
I heard something in this course which I have never heard before. The professor emphasizes on physical prospective of this course intentionally and this is very useful to describe the concept.
It is a very good course to introduce the basics of acoustics starting from one-dimensional cases to general 3D environments.
A very informative and interesting course. the professor conveyed the information in an interesting way.
Totally loved this course and learnt very keen to the concepts. Looking forward to pursue next course!
