PREFACE.
v
Although this book has not been written expressly for the use of students preparing for any particular examination, it will be found that a mastery of its contents will enable a candidate to successfully work any papers set in Acoustics at the ordinary musical examinations, including those of the Tonic Sol-fa College, Trinity College, and the examinations for the degree of Bachelor of Music at Cambridge and London. The papers set at these examinations during the last two years, together with the answers to the questions, will be found at the end of the book.
The text will be found to be fully illustrated by figures, of which Nos. 1, 2, 20, 21, 23, 36, 37, 50, 51, 64 are taken from Deschanel's Treatise on Natural Philosophy, and Nos. 4, 5, 58, 72, 78 from Lees' Acoustics, Light, and Heat, by permission of Messrs. Blackie & Sons and Collins & Son respectively. All the )ther figures have been cut expressly for this work.
