Introduction. IN a paper published in the Philosophical Magazine for August 1899, I gave an account of some experiments on the photography of sound-waves, and their application in the teaching of optical phenomena. Since writing this paper I have extended the work somewhat and at a meeting of the Royal Society on February 15, 1900, gave an account of this work, and demonstrated certain features of wave motion with the cinematograph.
