If you have a question about this talk, please contact Beverley Larner.

In this lecture, we will explore the physics of sound generation by dripping taps, whistling kettles, ultrasonic mice mating calls, wheezing lungs and buzzing reeds in musical instruments through a series of experimental investigations. We will see that even though the mechanism of sound generation in these everyday things are counter-intuitive, they can be explained by simple physical models.
