# 2.1 Recording the impulse response of a room

 Page 1 / 1
The methods used to collect data for use in sound deconvolution.

After obtaining the theoretical data we moved on to the measurements of the impulse response in both rooms and audio test trials. The equipment that was used for the measurements was as follows: a laptop computer, a pre amplifier, amplifier, speaker, and omnidirectional microphones. The microphones and source were placed in accordance with the locations we specified in the simulation software, given in rough estimate by the diagram.

The use of the laptop was necessary to not only record the test impulse response but as the source of the impulse and test audio. To avoid the difficulty of making an impulse sound physically, using a “clapper,” we generated an impulse digitally on the laptop with MATLAB. We used a piano tune as the input hoping to become slightly more cultured while working on our project. In order to properly record a significant number of reflections, very loud impulses and inputs were played. This most likely resulted in clipping, but was necessary to determine accurate responses.

The impulse and input audio are used to perform the deconvolution experiment. The impulse and the input signal were played in each of the rooms and the room responses to both of these were recorded in .wav format. We recorded both responses in two rooms, Duncan 1075 and a Will Rice College dorm room. We chose Duncan 1075 because it was the ELEC 301 classroom this year, and a generic dorm room should help all of the audiophile students get the best sound quality possible. We recorded two samples in each room, in case we found a null zone in one of the locations. The results are displayed on the next page.

state the law of diminishing return?

The Law of Diminishing (Marginal) Returns simply states that at some point in time a business/operation/etc.'s increased productivity will begin to decline.
The
For example, if a small pizza shop currently has 3 workers in the kitchen at any given time,and hiring 1 more worker will increase productivity, at some number of workers hired will the business see a decrease in productivity because the capital resources that the pizza shop has is not infinite.
The
Five social benefits of building a hospital, in my opinion and depending on where it's built, would be 1) Increased care for neighboring residents, 2) Potential jobs for individuals, 3) May decrease the travel time residents need to endure in order to reach the nearest hospital
The
4) May create work-study programs for individuals who aspire to be future Doctors, Nurses, Physicians, etc. 5) Assuming there are local pharmaceutical businesses nearby, the hospital may decide to purchase supplies local, increasing the business' sales. Thus, generating more income.
The
5 costs of building a hospital would be 1) Increased noise and waste pollution from service vehicles and hospital visitors, 2) May require large amounts of space, possibly jeopardizing nearby animal habitats, 3) May see an increase in traffic and possibly car accidents from frantic individuals
The
racing to see their injured friends, family members, etc. 4) Constructing a hospital and hiring staff is very expensive 5) To use funds, private or public, to finance the construction of a hospital cannot be used to fund any other projects. (The concept of opportunity costs.)

what is meant by inteference with the price mechanism operation?
Mugen
We use a Supply and Demand graph to illustrate at what price level will the market for a certain good or service be at equilibrium. If the price for a good or service is set too high, consumers will be less inclined to buy that product Thus, creating a surplus.
The
This surplus will eventually drive the price back down to it's equilibrium point. Similarly, if a price for a good or service is set too low, individuals would be more inclined to buy more of a certain product, creating a shortage. This shortage will cause sellers to drive the price back up to the
The
equilibrium point.

give two forms of collusion
1.Explicit Collusion: Also termed overt collusion, this occurs when two or more firms in the same industry formally agree to control the market .
Gafar
2.Implicit Collusion: Also termed tacit collusion, this occurs when two or more firms in the same industry informally agree to control the market, often through nothing more than interdependent actions. A prime example of implicit collusion is price leadership .
