Özet
Humans receive the vast majority of sensory perception through the eyes and ears - This non-technical book examines the everyday physics behind hearing and vision to help readers understand more about themselves and their physical environment. It begins with a thorough discussion of sound and light waves, then goes on to discuss how our eyes and ears gather and process information from those waves.
