dc.description.abstractThe acoustics of a drop falling into a large and calm body of water is the best documented case in published literature. Generally, these studies focus on the sound waves which propagate through the water. Here, we examine the sound which passes through the air and present relationships between observed frequencies and visible events during the impact. In addition, the acoustics involved in the collapse of an air cavity within the large body of water is modeled using a Helmholtz resonator.
dc.description.abstractWe present a study of the impacts of water drops onto a variety of surfaces with a focus on the acoustics of this phenomenon. Here, a study is undertaken of natural rainfall and of lab generated singular impacts.
dc.description.abstractThe frequency of the recorded audio is the primary result of each case. We notice signatures that are indicative of each surface of impact. The frequencies of the audio from natural rain are comparable to those of the laboratory replications on some surfaces.
