Sounds are nothing more than disruptions in the air. They can happen with varying degrees of intensity (amplitude) and frequency (frequency). Amplitude correlates with loudness, and frequency correlates with pitch (how high or low the sounds are). Sound waves can also vary in complexity, giving rise to a given sound's timbre. Sound can be transmitted by materials other than air.
Sounds are produced when objects vibrate. As they vibrate, particles of air are pushed together in a particular pattern. this pattern is a sound wave. Sound energy travels in compressional waves. In this, matter vibrates in the same direction as the energy travels through it.

What is sound and How is sound produced?

Sound is a physical entity, unlike noise which is the perception of sound. Sound is an high pressure wave front through a medium (such as air, or a liquid such as water, or a solid), wherein the wave front is followed by a reciprocal pressure differential behind it. Sound is produced when something (MORE)

What produces sounds?

Little sound waves travel toward you ear and toward your eardrum when a sound is made. Inside your ear are 3 little bones that vibrate when sound passes. Then the sound reaches the cochlea and the little hairs inside start moving. I'm quite sure that's how sound is made, give or take a few facts... (MORE)

What produces sound waves?

Sound is vibration transmitted through a solid, liquid, or gas; particularly, sound means those vibrations composed of frequencies capable of being detected by ears.. Sound is produced when the air is disturbed in some way, for example by a vibrating object. A speaker cone can serve as a good illus (MORE)

How does the piano produce sound?

When you press a key on the keyboard (of a piano), this enables a little hammer inside to strike on a string that produces the correct note.

How do vinyl records produce sound?

When a vinyl record player is played, the needle on the stylusretraces the groove that was cut into the record. Which recreatesthe sounds and causes the groove to bend and transfer thevibrations to a diaphragm in a speaker which picks up the sound andamplifies it.

How does a flute produce sound?

The sound on a flute is produced by blowing quite a lot of air over the hole on the mouthpiece. Flutes have an oval hole over which you must blow. But to do this you must have the right mouthshape, the shape used for spitting rice is appropriate. Then you blow lots of air over the hole. If you blow (MORE)

Sounds and materials produced by volcanoes?

A loud rumble will be heard. The materials produced usually are lava, volcanic ash, volcanic gases(carbo dioxide, sulfur dioxide, water vapour...) and pyroclastic deposits, which can damage buildings, block rivers and kill people living around the volcano.

How do you produce sounds?

By making the air vibrate, usually by means of a vibrating source such as a voice, a tuning fork, a speaker, a bell and so on.

How the sound is produced?

by movement or air molecules which you produce from your mouth its basically the vibrations answer by manohar madhavarapu

How does the flute create its sound or produce its sound?

When you blow into a flute, the lip plate should split your breath. Half of your breath goes into the flute and half goes over top of it. Closing the key holes produces different pitches. The whistling sound is made by the breath that travels across the opening of the flute.

Where is sound produced?

sound can be produced in any medium - air, water and solids too, but most of the sounds we hear are through air. Animals like dolphins produce sound in water and hear it there.

All sounds are produced by?

Vibrating 'air' particles, through a transfer of energy; creating a sound wave which then reaches your ears and vibrates your ear drum. (doesn't have to be air, sound also travels through water ect)

How does the triangle produce sound?

When struck, it vibrates. This will in turn produce vibrations in the air, that are propagated as sound waves. When struck, it vibrates. This will in turn produce vibrations in the air, that are propagated as sound waves. When struck, it vibrates. This will in turn produce vibrations in the air, t (MORE)

Do bees produce sounds?

Bees buzz but the sound is produced by the speed of vibrations of their wings and not by vocal chords of any type.

How are human vocal sounds produced?

At the upper end of the trachea is the larynx. Sounds are produced when air is forced past two ligaments - the vocal cords - that stretch across the larynx. The pitch and volume of the sound produced varies with the amount of tension on the vocal cords and on the amount of air being forced past them (MORE)

How is a sound produced in a bass instrument?

Sounds (all of them) are produced by vibration. The faster the vibration, the higher the pitch. Whether the vibration is produced on a string or with air, it's the speed of the vibration, and the length that vibration has to travel that determines the pitch.

How is Sound produced on the crash cymbals?

Anything you hit makes noise. Noise is made by vibrations in the air. The cymbals vibrate a lot and that's what makes the sound. Watch a cymbal being hit in slow motion.

How do you produce sound in a saxophone?

First you have to wet your reed and place it properly on the mouthpiecec so that the top of the reed and mouthpiece are lined up. Then you would curl your bottom lip under and place your front teeth on top and blow. If you put down your three left fingers you will play a G which is a good note to st (MORE)

How is sound produced by humans?

I am assuming you mean vocal sounds. Air is passed through the vocal folds of the throat. The person brings the folds together close enough to cause a Bernoulli effect or flapping of the folds. The sound is a vibration of air that passes up to the mouth and nasal cavities. By shaping the mouth the (MORE)

How do cheetas produce sound?

Cheetahs produce sound the same way we do but the sounds that travel to them they collect by the sound waves traveling up there ear into the brain where they autimatically process the sound and know what it is!

Is sound produced when things vibrate?

Actually, sound isn't caused by vibrations, sound is the vibrations. You see, sound is just our complex ear receiving these signals and interpreting them into what our brains can understand.

How does the trumpet create its sound or produce its sound?

A trumpet's sound is created by the player who uses his lips to vibrate the air he blows into the the horn. These vibrations resonate through the brass wall of the horn to form tones or notes. When the player depresses one or more of the trumpet's keys, the air column in the horn is changed, thus al (MORE)

What causes the trumpet to produce sound?

The lips are pressed together and air pressure from our lungs makes them vibrate. The length of the resonator (the trumpet itself) is adjusted with the various valves, changing the resonant frequency and thus the pitch. You can make more than one pitch, usually in steps of a fifth, by changing the p (MORE)

How does a television produce sound?

Basically a eletrical signal goes through a coil of copper wire...in side the coil is a magnet and the eletrical energy moves then moves the magnet which is connected to a sound cone. Afterward, the sound cone move back and forth to create sound waves in the air. .

Do light waves produce sound?

Light is silent, it produces no sound. However, with the right kind of equipment, it is possible to convert a signal in a laser beam into sound; phone conversations can be carried by light in a fiber optic cable.

Why does a bulb produce sound when breaks?

When an object falls to the floor and breaks, some of the kinetic energy imparted to the object by its falling is converted into vibrations of the surrounding air as it is stopped abruptly by the floor. You hear these vibrations of the air as sound.

What is sound and how it is produce?

Sound is vibrations in a physical medium (usually air). Sound is produced by a release of energy that causes a vibration in the medium. Sound can not therefore be in a place where there is no medium (empty space).

How sound is produces?

Sound is produced by vibration in the air. For example, when you speak your vocal cords vibrate, causing a sound. Your ears sense the vibration and tell your brain about the change in environment.
