The area of physics known as acoustics is devoted to the study of the production, transmission, and reception of sound. Thus, wherever sound is produced and transmitted, it will have an effect somewhere, even if there is no one present to hear it. The medium of sound transmission is an all-important, key factor. Among the areas addressed within the realm of acoustics are the production of sounds by the human voice and various instruments, as well as the reception of sound waves by the human ear.
