How Soundproofing affects Sound

How Soundproofing affects sound, Soundproofing affects sound in two different ways, noise reduction and sound absorption.
Noise reduction simply blocks the passage of sound waves through the use of distance and intervening objects in the sound path.
Sound absorption operates by transforming the sound wave. Noise absorption involves suppressing echoes, reverberation, resonance and reflection. The damping characteristics of the materials it is made out of are important in noise absorption. The wetness or moisture level in a medium can also reflect sound waves, significantly reducing and distorting the sound traveling through it, making moisture an important factor in soundproofing.
What is Soundproofing:  Soundproofing is any means of reducing the sound pressure with respect to a specified sound source and receptor. There are several basic approaches to reducing sound: increasing the distance between source and receiver, using noise barriers to block or absorb the energy of the sound waves, using damping structures such as sound baffles, or using active anti-noise sound generators.
