Plane Waves: Time Domain Solutions

  • Jerry H. GinsbergEmail author


Now that we have identified the significant properties of an acoustic signal we may address two fundamental questions: How was the signal generated at its source? How was the signal modified as it traveled from its source to the location where it was observed? These questions often are closely related. Generation of sound is usually associated with oscillation of another medium that shares a surface with the fluid in which the sound is observed.
