Sound Waves: The Symphony of Physics
Sound Waves: The Symphony of Physics is a two-part BBC documentary series hosted by Dr. Helen Czerski, which takes us on a journey into the world of sound waves and reveals what the physics of sound can tell us about the world and how it works. The world is awash with sound waves, they are all around us. However sound is so much more than simply a soundtrack to our lives, and the more we've discovered about the physics of sound, the more extraordinary the secrets it has revealed. In this series, Dr. Helen Czerski investigates the extraordinary science behind the sounds we're familiar with and the sounds that we normally can't hear, and examines the extraordinary messages sound waves carry and how they help us understand the world around us.

|Harmonious Math: Fourier Analysis
All sound is the product of airwaves crashing against our eardrums. The mathematical technique for understanding this and other wave phenomena is called Fourier analysis, ...
British physicist Dr. Helen Czerski believes that simple, even mundane, observations can help us understand the properties that govern our universe.
|The Music Instinct: Science and Song
This film provides a ground-breaking exploration into how and why the human organism and the whole ebb and flow of the cosmos is moved by the undeniable effect of music.
|The Sound of the Universe
In space no-one can hear you scream... but it is still a noisy Universe. We are familiar with the many stunning images of space, but these are only part of the whole human experience. This lecture takes a new approach to appreciating the Universe, through the vehicle of sound.
|Physics: Vibrations and Waves
Instructor: Professor Walter Lewin. In addition to the traditional topics of mechanical vibrations and waves, coupled oscillators, and electromagnetic radiation, other interesting topics are covered.
