January Tacoma Science Café - 
"The Physics of Music: Using Light to Study Sound"

FREE for everyone.
6:30 p.m. Tuesday, January 10, at The Swiss Pub, 1904 Jefferson Ave.Tacoma

Featuring Rand Worland, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Physics Department, University of Puget Sound

From clarinets and violins, to drums and cymbals, vibrations create the complex sounds that we hear from musical instruments. At the January Tacoma Science Café, join the University of Puget Sound's Rand Worland, Ph.D., to discover how he uses lasers to produce images of these vibrations and how differences in vibrations alter how we perceive sounds.
