What is Sound?

ByEziukwu David Ifeanyi

What is Sound?

Sound is a disturbance of the atmosphere that human beings can sense with their hearing systems. Such disturbances are produced by practically everything that moves, especially if it moves quickly or in a rapid and repetitive manner. The movement could be initiated by: Hammering (rods), plucking (string), Bowing (strings), Forced air flow (vibration of air column – Organ, voice). Vibrations from any of these sources cause a series of pressure fluctuations of the medium surrounding the object to travel outwards through the air from the source.
