13. the perceptible repetition of sound due to multiple reflection of sound waves between the walls of a room is called


14. A room in which the walls, floor, and ceiling can absorb very little sound, resulting in echoes.

Reverberation chamber.

15. Room whose boundaries absorb effectively all incident sound.

Anechoic room.

16. Resonant acoustic device consisting of air cavity connected to a larger space by a relatively small opening or neck.

Helmholtz resonator.
