Sample text

These cyclic fluctuations in pressure can be described in terms of their amplitude, frequency, and phase. Pressure is the parameter most often used to describe sound waves because most measuring devices, such as microphones, respond to changes in sound pressure. The unit of sound pressure is the Pascal (abbreviated Pa). Recall that the term Hertz, rather than cycles per second, is used to describe the frequency of a sound. 3). Unfortunately for the student, this practice often obscures the dimensions of the quantity.

4 Review of units of measure and metric prefixes As mentioned in the text, one may encounter a variety of physical units for various physical quantities. For sound pressure, for example, units of Newtons per square meter or dynes per square centimeter may both be found in various sources. Although both units of pressure in this example are metric, one expresses area in meters and the other expresses area in centimeters. There are two basic measurement systems encountered in physics, the MKS system and the CGS system.

In the second year, introductory and intermediate applied courses are introduced, and the student becomes much more involved in practicum experience, especially in case management. During the third year, advanced clinical courses are required, and a series of short-term clinical rotations or externships are typically initiated to provide broader clinical experience. In years 2 and 3, the students take Capstone I and II. The capstone is an independent project conducted by the student under the direction of a faculty member.
