Acoustic and electric communication differ in one important respect: while acoustic communication signals propagate through air or water as a wave, electric signals do not propagate, but exist instead as electrostatic fields. As a result of propagation, acoustic signals are distorted during transmission in a largely unpredictable way. Sound receivers, therefore, may not be able to recognize fine details in the waveform of an acoustic signal, but may have to rely instead upon time intervals… CONTINUE READING
