first_imgThe sounds of music, along with descriptions of how they are created and the rules of physics they follow, will be the subject of the April 19 CU Wizards show “The Physics of Music.” Jim Faller, a physicist at the University of Colorado at Boulder, will present the show at 9:30 a.m. in Duane Physics, room G1B30. The show, aimed at students in grades five through nine, is free and open to the public. During the show, Faller will demonstrate the ways different instruments create their musical sounds, while at the same time pointing out the important musical role played by the silence between the sounds. Faller has taught physics at CU-Boulder since 1971 and is a fellow of JILA, a joint institute of CU-Boulder and the National Institute of Standards and Technology. CU Wizards is usually held the third Saturday of each month during the academic year and focuses on astronomy, chemistry and physics. Though intended primarily for students in grades five through nine, the shows are educational and entertaining to people of all ages. Two more programs are remaining in the 2003 CU Wizards schedule: * May 17, 9:30 a.m., Cristol Chemistry and Biochemistry, room 140, Assistant Professor Deborah Wuttke of chemistry and biochemistry will discuss “Biochemistry for Kids.” * June 14, 9:30 a.m., Fiske Planetarium, Professor Andrew Hamilton of astrophysical and planetary sciences will explain “Black Holes.” For more information about CU Wizards call (303) 492-4318 or visit the Web site at http://physics.colorado.edu/wizards/cuwizards.html.
