    is a sound wave? A sound wave is produced by a mechanical vibration, such as a tuning fork. The vibrating object causes the surrounding medium, such as air, to vibrate as well.The wave travels through the medium to a detector, like your ear, and it is heard.As with any type of wave, a sound wave is also described by it's wavelength, amplitude, period, and frequency. WAVELENGTH is the distance from one point on the wave, to the next identical point, or the length of one part of the wave. AMPLITUDE

    The Uses of Sound Waves Thesis: Sound waves are able to carry vibrations through a medium which results in the transfer of the energy collected in the vibrations. Transverse waves are vibrations which are at right angles to the wave’s direction of travel whereas longitudinal waves are vibrations along the line of wave’s direction of travel. These waves have a quantifiable speed, wavelength and frequency. Owing

    applies to music, more specifically how sound waves are transmitted. My passion for music urged me to research the sounds that are made and how they are produced. Music is transmitted through sound waves, which are very similar to the sine waves studied in Trigonometry. The differences in the waves result in a different sounds that are transmitted. Vibrating objects travel through a medium (the material that the disturbance is moving through) to create sounds at a given frequency. The frequency is

    Music, one of the most beautiful sounds on Earth, the strumming of a guitar, the vibrations of reeds in a saxophone, the vibration and the pressure in between the two heads of the drums, the vibration of the bass chords. Every single thing has its own sound, some of those can not be heard because of the low or the high amount of hertz, and can only be heard by another type of animal that can actually hear that amount of frequency for example whales can hear a very high frequency while dogs can too

    Sound is made when something vibrates. The vibrating body causes the medium water and air around it to vibrate. Vibrations in the air are traveling longitudinal waves, that we can hear. Sound waves are in areas of high and low pressure called compressions and rarefactions. Lighter areas are low pressure rarefactions and darker areas are high pressure compressions. The wavelength and the speed of the wave figures the pitch, or frequency of sound. Wavelength, frequency, and speed are related by the

    The Physics of the Sound Wave and its Effects on the Human Ear Could you imagine living in a world without sound? It would be enormously different from the world that we know. Our primary form of inter-human communication would be based on visual or tactile imagery. Our sense of perception would be changed. Telecommunication would be different. We would not have the pleasure of music or the soothing sounds of nature. Sound has had an immense impact on our world. This essay will explore the unseen

    Measuring the Depth of Water Using Sound Waves Aim The aim of my investigation was to create a sensor which could measure the depth of water in a tank. Plan The way I proposed to measure the depth of water was using sound waves which would be emitted and fired into the tank of water. The sound wave should then be reflected of the bottom of the tank and picked up by a microphone. The microphone would be linked to an oscilloscope and the sound emitter would be linked to the oscilloscope
