Which animals can hear ultrasonic sound waves?
whale can hear ultrasonic sound waves.
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
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.
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?
bats can hear ultrasonic sound
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.
worms,fish,snakes,crocodiles,sharks, and bats
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).
the bats do not produce supersonic sounds.they produce ultrasonic sounds.Thats the reason we cant hear them
they talk to each other by ultrasonic sound. they create and hear ultrasonic sound
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)
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.
they're may be more but bats can hear unltrasonic sound
Ultrasonic is sound of a higher pitch and shorter wavelength than humans can hear.
an elephant can hear subsonic even ultrasonic
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
An ultrasonic wave is a sound wave vibrating at a frequency beyond the human hearing. The wave is emited from a devise (or an organ in the case of animals such as bats). The wave then hits an object and reflects of it (an echo). The devise (or another organ in the bat) will detect the reflect wave and measure its direction and the time it took to be reflected and the devise would use… Read More
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.
An ultrasonic wave is a sound pressure wave that has a very high frequency. The frequency is higher that what humans can hear.
Sound waves with frequencies above the normal human range of hearing are called ultrasound Ultrasound Ultrasonic for frequencies higher than a human can hear, and infrasonic for those frequencies below the human threshold of hearing.
The human ear can hear sounds that are at a frequency of about 20 - 20,000 hertz (i.e., cycles per second). Actually it varies a bit from person to person; especially for older people, the higher end of this range goes down, that is, they can no longer hear the sounds of the higher frequencies. In any case, anything above approximately 20 kilohertz is called "ultrasound"; the corresponding adjective is "ultrasonic".
Ultrasonic sound which is higher than 20,000hz
Certain animals can indeed hear radio waves. A great number of animals have very sensitive hearing that allows them to hear radio waves.
Animals like rhinoceroses, elephants , whales can hera the infrasonic sounds while animals like dog, bat, rat, cat, deer and monkey can hear the ultrasonic sounds. ARTIKA SHARMA 8th Standard
"Ultrasonic" means higher frequency than humans can hear. Therefore, you can't hear it. Frequency too high for human ears. Dogs, cats, and bats can hear it if it's not too high. Short wavelength makes it good for imaging without radiation. Pictures made with ultrasonic sound are called "ultrasound" images.
when you hear things, its really sound waves. the sound waves enter your ear, then it vibrates the ear drum.
Dogs can hear up to 44 kHz which is more than twice the maximum frequency audible to humans.
Audiology in reference to what people and animals can hear. Aucustics in reference to the science of sound waves.
No. For example whales can hear infra sound - very low frequency waves whereas dogs can hear ultrasound. Humans cannot hear either.
An ultrasonic rangefinder sends out a short beep of sound, and measures the time it takes for an echo to come back. Knowing the speed of sound, it calculates the distance to the object the sound echoed off of. It uses sound at a frequency that your ears can't hear, so the beep is called "ultrasonic".
example of sound can`t hear
When we hear sound we do not feel the pushing the air becasue the sound waves are in form of comprestional waves.
A piezoelectric crystal gives off electricity when compressed (used in gas grill igniters) but will also change volume when an electrical current is applied. When a high frequency alternating current is applied to the crystal, it expands and contracts at the same frequency as the current. If the frequency is high enough, it produces sound waves above the range that people can hear- ultrasonic.
sound waves and vibrations
light waves are a form of light. sound waves are a form of sound. you can hear sound but can not see it.you can see light but you can not hear it.light from a light source such as the sun,a light bulb or flashlight.light is made up of all colors.
In space, there is no wind or something to carry the sound waves. Sound waves must travel for people to hear. For example, if an explosion took place in space, you will not hear anything because the sound waves created by the explosion won't travel.
There is no sound in outer space because of sound waves. Sound waves make vibrations, but we can't hear them.
it is proven that most animals can hear waves through earthquakes. but humans can just feel the "bump".
Yes, moths can hear. Some moths can use ultrasonic waves similar to bats. Some larger varieties actually have large ears on their abdomens.
Sound is longitudinal waves that you can hear. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Longitudinal_wave
you can hear the sound of birds and the sound of waves washing up to the surface (: .
People use sound waves in ultrasound scans when women are pregnant. You can hear the noises the baby is making and the sound is through sound waves
When two waves interact via deconstructive interference, then you would hear nothing if you stood in that exact spot. If two waves interact via constructive interference, then you would hear a sound that is the sum of both waves.
Sound is a series of vibrations. When the vibrations are in the range that humans can hear it is called sound. Other animals can hear a wider range of sounds than humans. The sound vibrations are longitudinal (or compression) waves. Waves have frequency, wavelength and amplitude. Humans can hear waves which have a frequency (how often the waves are hitting your ear) between about 20 to 20 000 Hz but there is some hearing loss… Read More
Sometimes you feel the vibrations from a sound source before you hear the source itself Why is this?
Sound travels in waves. Our ears register these waves and convert them into noise; however, our ears can only detect a very small range of sound waves. Many sound waves have a frenquency that is much too high or too low for our ears to "hear". If you've ever blown a dog whistle and made your pup yelp in pain while you couldn't hear a thing then you understand. The vibrations that you feel are… Read More
Your ear can hear the frequency of sound waves from 20 to 20,00 Hertz.
It is the Ultra sonic sound waves which can be hear.
we hear them
you hear that? its sound :)
