Vibrations cause sound. An object that vibrates causes the media around it to compress in a certain frequency. If the frequency is in the range of the ear, it comes across as sound. Vibration causes all sounds. Vibrations travel in waves, and these waves hit our eardrums and set them into motion. The signal is sent to the brain, which is interpreted as sound,
