I'm a valid engineer (not paramedic) and that i stumbled on that e-book (its so much half) covers issues of my curiosity, wide and deep adequate, yet i have to admit a few unwieldy variety on explaining issues there. (Just for the other instance (on comparable topic) i will be able to indicate to Juan G. Roederer's booklet "The Physics and Psychophysics of song. An Introduction", extra witty or effortless to understand.)

3 Structures of the ear in relation to the head. Courtesy of Abbott Laboratories. (internal auditory meatus), enters the brain at the angle of the pons and cerebellum, and terminates in the brainstem at the cochlear nuclei. We are now in the central auditory system. TEMPORAL BONE The ear is contained within the temporal bone. Knowledge of the major landmarks of this bone is thus important in understanding the anatomy and spatial orientation of the ear. The right and left temporal bones are two of the 22 bones that make up the skull.

The positive peak of the sine wave at point c corresponds to circle (c), in which r′ has rotated to the straight up position. It is now at a 90° angle to r, and the distance (d) down to the horizontal radius (r) is greatest. Here, we have completed a quarter of the wave and an arc equal to a quarter the circumference of the circle. Notice now that further counterclockwise rotation of r′ results in decreasing the distance (d) down to the horizontal, as shown in circle (d) and by the displacement of point d from the baseline of the sine wave.

In other words, even though these combined waveforms are no longer sinusoidal, they still retain the characteristic of repeating themselves at regular intervals over time. Moreover, notice that all three waves (f1+f2, f1+f3, and f1+f2+f3) repeat themselves with the same period as f1, which is the lowest component in each case. These are examples of complex periodic waves, so called because: (1) they are composed of more than one component, and (2) they repeat themselves at regular time intervals.
