Acoustical engineering
 1. Acoustical engineering is a branch of engineering that deals with the study and manipulation of sound and vibration. It involves designing and implementing solutions to control and improve the way sound is generated, transmitted, and perceived in various environments. Acoustical engineers work on a wide range of projects, from designing concert halls and recording studios to reducing noise in buildings and developing sound systems for vehicles. They use principles of physics, mathematics, and engineering to create spaces and devices that optimize sound quality, minimize noise pollution, and enhance communication and listening experiences for people. Acoustical engineering plays a crucial role in shaping the acoustics of our everyday surroundings and is essential in ensuring comfort, safety, and functionality in a variety of settings.What is reverberation time?A) Frequency of a sound waveB) Pitch of a soundC) Time for a sound to decay by 60 dBD) Amplitude of a sound wave2.
