Abstract

“Sound” as a physical phenomenon and “sound” as a perceptual phenomena are not the same thing. Definitions and results from acoustics are compared and contrasted to the appropriate definitions and results from perception research and psychology. Auditory perceptions such as loudness, pitch, and timbre can often be correlated with physically measurable properties of the sound wave.
