What is the difference between infra sound and ultrasound?
Infrasound has a frequency below normal hearing. Ultrasound waves have a frequency above the normal range of human hearing. ...
What is is infrasonic?
Infrasonic frequency range is those frequencies that is lower that the hearing range of a human ( we call it the audible range ) from about 19 khz down and Ultrasonic Frequency range is that 21 khz up ,. .. whose range is higher that the audible range ...

What are hearing ranges measured in?
There are two parameters regarding hearing ranges. One is frequency range, and the range of hearing is measured in Hertz, which is cycles per second. Another variable is the threshold of hearing. In other words, how loud does a sound at a given frequency have to be to be heard. That sound level is measured in decibels with respect to a reference level. The threshold level will vary with the pitch (frequency) of the sound, as you might have guessed. ...

Frequency range that can be heard?
The average person with undamaged hearing can detect vibrations in a range from approximately 20 hz to 20,000 hz. Damage to hearing from age, disease, or exposure to loud sounds can reduce this range, especially in the higher frequencies. ...

What is the tortoises hearing range?
A tortoise's ears have no external auricle. They have an ear flap, located behind the animals eyes towards the rear of the head. Tortoise's hearing is different to humans, and less sensitive to high frequency sounds. They can hear lower frequency sounds that are fairly close in range to them. ...
Why are there some sounds that you cannot hear?
Human hearing is most effective in the range of about 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz. Slightly lower frequency sounds may be heard or "felt." Some sounds outside this range can be heard by some individuals. Some animals have a wider range of hearing, such as dogs who can hear higher pitched (higher frequency) sounds. ...
