What is phonetics?
Phonetics is the study of the sounds used in speech, how they are produced and so on.
Phonology, on the other hand, is concerned with the sound system of a given language or dialect.
Phonetics is the science studying the sounds of speech: it is all about the way you say things (articulatory phonetics), hear things (acoustic phonetics) and perceive what you hear (auditory phonetics). Studies in phonetics become increasingly important today, as they are central to speech recognition technology.
phonology deal with the sound systems of language Specifically with the ways those sound are organized into the individual language. phonetics deal with the physical realisation of the elements of the sound system, e.g. how the sound is physically produced (articulatory phonetics), or the acoustic characteristics of the speech sound (acoustic phonetics.

Phonetics is a study of speech sound. Acoustic phonetics is a sub-sector of it. Acoustic phonetics is a study of physical aspects of speech sounds. Speech goes away as the speech sounds come out of your mouth unless you record the speech. Thus, we record speech sounds for analysis. Acoustic phonetics includes study of fundamental frequency (pitch), amplitude/intensity (loudness), duration (length), formant estimates, and other physical aspects of speech sounds.
Yes. The main focus of phonetics is how sounds are made. The study of phonetics dictates whether sounds are voiceless, aspirated, nasalized, the point of articulation of each sound, etc. Phonology on the other hand is the study of how speech sounds are organized and how they function. It looks at the significance of sounds and how they are used in a particular language. It is therefore possible to study the phonetics of all languages…
