Experiments on Physics in the Arts: Papers from a Workshop (University of South Carolina, Columbia, June 10-21, 1974).
South Carolina Univ., Columbia. Dept. of Physics.
This book contains 65 physics experiments. The experiments are for a college-level physics course for music and art majors. The initial experiments are devoted to the general concept of vibration and cover vibrating strings, air columns, reflection, and interference. Later experiments explore light, color perception, cameras, mirrors and symmetry, polarization, the response of the eye and ear to intensity changes, and other topics. Simple experiments on wave motion, light, and sound that can be performed with a minimum of equipment are appended. (BB)
