Best Answer

I had the almost exact same problem with my 2004 Nissan Maxima. after several trips to the dealership for all kinds of tests and inpections(most of which involved brakes) the technicians told me my rim was bent. A new one cost 700 bucks on my car. I don't know how to check for that without giving it to a tire shop.

What causes my 1987 Buick Park Avenue to vibrate?

Most commonly a vibration while driving is from a broken belt in one of the tires, but if it's vibrating while sitting still, it's usually from loose motor mounts and/ or a higher than necessary rpm

What kind of vibration makes a high pitched sound?

Sound is the vibration of air molecules. The higher the pitch, the faster the vibration. The stronger the vibration, the louder the sound.

Where do sounds come from?

it depends on how big or small the vibration is to determine the sound. The bigger the vibration, the lower the sound is. the smaller the vibration, the higher the sound.

How you perceive frequency of sound vibration?

With your ears. The faster the vibration, the higher the frequency. A low frequency vibration will be felt more than heard.

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 do you achieve a higher pitched sound?

Increase the frequency of vibration.

Why do smaller objects make higher sounds?

Sound is created by the vibration of air. The faster the vibration, the higher the sound. Smaller objects can vibrate faster than larger objects (of the same kind) and therefore have a higher pitched sound.

Why do some sounds have a low pitch while others have a high pitch?

Since our ears recognize any type of pitch as a vibration the more vibration the higher the pitch less vibration lower the pitch.

How does varying the length of the string change its vibration?

The longer the string - the slower the vibration (and lower the note produced). If you shorten the string - it vibrates faster, producing a higher-pitched note,

If you twang a ruler far away from the table will the sound be higher or lower?

When you twang a ruler close to the table there is less vibration so the sound is higher, when you twang it farther away there is more vibration so the sound is lower.Do double check just test for yourself.

What can cause a engine vibration on a 3.8 2000 mustang standard trans?

It is according to when you feel the vibration. If you have a vibration at higher speeds, your driveshaft could be out of balance. At lower speeds, you may actually have a cracked engine mount. Take it to a shop before it tears something up.

How fast do particles move in a solid?

Particles in a solid are always moving . They vibrate rapidly about their fixed positions . Their vibration speed depends on the temperature of the solid . The higher the temperature , the faster is the vibration ( movement ) .

Is a sound quieter when a vibration is smaller?

No. If a vibration is smaller, the sound is higher pitched. To get a quieter sound the amplitude of the sound-wave needs to be smaller. +++ It depends whether you mean amplitude or wavelength being "smaller", and they are two different things. If the vibration's amplitude is smaller the sound is quieter irrespective of frequency. If the vibration is more rapid, the frequency is higher but the wavelength correspondingly smaller irrespective of amplitude.

It causes a higher current in the circuit.

Why The lighter string will have the higher frequency?

The lighter strings vibrate much faster than the heavier ones when the bow is drawn across them. This faster or higher frequency of vibration emits the higher pitched sound.

What makes pitch higher or lower?

Pitch is the music categorization of frequency. Frequency is the repeating rate of vibrations. The higher the pitch, the higher the frequency, i.e., the faster the vibrations. The lower the pitch, the lower the vibration rate.
