Why is it important to distinguish between room acoustics and other aspects of architectural acoustics design (such as control of sound transmission)? Does such a distinction seem useful to you as a designer? The existence of optimum, maximum, and actual reverberation times is suggested in the book. Discuss how these three types of reverberation values are related and how they would be used during the design process. Historically, the decibel is one of the greatest stumbling blocks to a comfortable introduction to architectural acoustics. Clearly explain what exactly a decibel is and why it has been adopted for use in architectural acoustics. Do you feel that speech privacy as discussed in the book is generally privacy of speech or privacy from speech? Are these two concepts identical? If yes, why? If not, why not?
