Built as an opera house in 1705, Redoutensaal was redesigned in 1748 and actually consists of two halls, seating 1500 and 400, respectively. The larger room was rectangular, and had a ceiling height of about 30 ft and side galleries running its full length. 6 seconds when fully occupied. The rooms had flat floors and were used for balls as well as for concerts. Haydn, Mozart, Strauss, Schubert, Liszt, and Beethoven composed and conducted dances and concerts for these rooms, and Beethoven’s Eighth Symphony was first performed here in 1814.

The exponential function, where the exponent is imaginary, is the critical component of this process.

If they start with some initial phase difference, it quickly becomes meaningless as the radius vectors precess at different rates (Fig. 11). 12 The Sum of Two Sine Waves With Widely Differing Frequencies The combination of these two signals is shown in Fig. 12. Here the two frequencies are relatively far apart and the higher-frequency signal seems to ride on top of the lower frequency. When the amplitudes are the same, the sum of the two waves is1 ! 30) 2 2 If the two frequencies are close together, a phenomenon known as beats occurs.
