Acoustic Science Table

I cleaned up the table a bit and have what I'd like to think of as a finished comparison. The left column is the physical science which the sonic screwdriver is mimicking and the right column is the acoustic science which I found that explains the real science available to actually perform that function. Granted, the science exhibited today is pale in comparison to what the writers have the sonic screwdriver doing on the show but it proves that these sciences actually do exist.

Yes, you will find magic wand among those functions cause there are just some things that can not be explained no matter how much you delve into acoustic sciences.

Note : Figures. Shortly after posting this table, I found a few other entries which needed tweaked. That's what has been holding it up for a while. Tweaking the data in order to align it properly.
