acoustics
n
  1. the study of the physical properties of sound
From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   Acoustics \A*cous"tics\ (#; 277), n. [Names of sciences in -ics,
      as, acoustics, mathematics, etc., are usually treated as
      singular. See {-ics}.] (Physics.)
      The science of sounds, teaching their nature, phenomena, and
      laws.
  
               Acoustics, then, or the science of sound, is a very
               considerable branch of physics.               --Sir J.
                                                                              Herschel.
  
      Note: The science is, by some writers, divided, into
               diacoustics, which explains the properties of sounds
               coming directly from the ear; and catacoustica, which
               treats of reflected sounds or echoes.
