    absorption panels. This should be implemented by the architect during design (Passero & Zannin 2012). A retro fit of sound absorption panels is possible, however inconvenient. Varjo et al. (2015) carried out extensive acoustic testing in a controlled open-plan office environment. Use of acoustic absorption panels and audio masking techniques demonstrated a reduction in irrelevant noise by up to 36dBA at the 2K position on the frequency spectrum – which is the range of human speech. Focusing on intensive

    First of all, a sound source radiates power and this results in a sound pressure, where the sound power is the ‘cause’ and sound pressure is the ‘effect’. But still, we always have to keep in mind that sound cannot travel through vacuum, simply, because sound propagates as a wave, which creates ‘compressions’ and ‘rarefactions’, as it interacts with the particles of the medium. If there is no medium, then there are no particles and of course, there is no interaction wave-particles interaction and
