When my 1998 Kia did this, it was the wheel bearings, inner and outer. Your local car repair shop should be able to check it out for you by putting it on a lift - usually at no cost to you. I am very curious about that also, i have a 2000 or 2001 Kia Sportage, but it vibrates starting at 60 mph, usually on the interstate.

Check the universal joints and balance of the driveshaft. When you are accelerating pressure is applied to these parts and if they are worn or out of balance or dented they will cause a vibration that will stop when you let off the gas.

What does an object have to do to produce sound?

Sound, by definition, is physical vibrations which can be perceived. To produce sound, an object must vibrate and cause those vibrations to get as far as a human ear. Normally, this involves making the air between the ear and the object vibrate, but if the object is in contact with the body, it is quite possible for the vibrations to move through flesh and bone (especially bone) to get perceived. So the key elements are: The object must vibrate. The vibrations of the object must be perceived.
