Ultrasonic waves are sound waves with frequencies higher than what humans can hear. Sound waves have frequencies of about 20,000 to 100,000.

Sound waves too high for humans to hear are called: ultrasonic

bats can hear ultrasonic sound

Yes. Ultrasonic waves can pass through metal. The only difference between "normal" sound waves and ultrasonic waves is that we cannot hear ultrasonic waves. However, they behave the same.

If you can't hear them, they're not sound waves. Waves in the air that have a frequency too low to be heard are called subsonic. Waves in the air that have a frequency too high to be heard are called ultrasonic.

worms,fish,snakes,crocodiles,sharks, and bats

Smaller animals use sounds of shorter waves - bats live only due to ultrtasonic wav es - while whales are said to communicate in very long sound waves. It is interesting indeed - is there an animal who perceive both?

User Avatar

Yes, sound waves exist which are not audible to the human ear. Humans can hear sound waves having frequency between 20 - 20,000 Hz. Other all frequencies lie outside our hearing range and are called ultrasonic or supersonic waves.

they talk to each other by ultrasonic sound. they create and hear ultrasonic sound

User Avatar

the bats do not produce supersonic sounds.they produce ultrasonic sounds.Thats the reason we cant hear them

User Avatar

they're may be more but bats can hear unltrasonic sound

User Avatar

Loud speakers can produce ultrasonic waves. But since the normal purpose of loud speakers is to produce sounds for people to hear, there is seldom a reason to produce sounds that people can't hear (other than to annoy certain animals).

an elephant can hear subsonic even ultrasonic

Ultrasonic is sound of a higher pitch and shorter wavelength than humans can hear.

Infrasonic waves are waves which are below humans hearing range while ultrasonic waves are waves which human beings can hear. Example-bat,dog etc and human beings (respectively)

Certain animals can indeed hear radio waves. A great number of animals have very sensitive hearing that allows them to hear radio waves.

User Avatar

Sonic infrasound is a sound too low for humans to hear, below 20 Hertz. Ultrasound is a sound too high for humans to hear, above 20,000 Hertz.

User Avatar

Ultrasonic sound which is higher than 20,000hz

User Avatar

Ulrasound is sound that is too high pitched for the human ear to hear. Ultrasonic is used to describe a sound as being an ultrasound. So, ultrasonic is an adjective, and ultrasound is a verb.

User Avatar

An ultrasonic wave is a sound pressure wave that has a very high frequency. The frequency is higher that what humans can hear.

User Avatar

when you hear things, its really sound waves. the sound waves enter your ear, then it vibrates the ear drum.

User Avatar

You cannot year infrasonic and ultrasonic waves because their frequencies are beyond Êthe normalÊrange ofÊÊwhich human ear can hear.ÊInfrasonic waves has frequencies Êfar below the range ÊofÊhuman being hearing while ultrasonic waves have frequenciesÊabove the range of human being hearing.Ê

sound waves and vibrations

When we hear sound we do not feel the pushing the air becasue the sound waves are in form of comprestional waves.
