Shhhhhhhh-2: Sound Absorption
Division:International / None
Region:Central Newfoundland
City:St. Brendan's, NL
School:St. Gabriel's All Grade
Abstract:This project deals with sound absorption and several properties that effect a materials ability to absorb sound. Through experimentation we were looking to see the effects of altering a materials temperature, surface composition, and external shape on sound absorption. We were also looking to see if altering the frequency of a sound wave would have any effects on the materials ability to absorb the sound.
