How Sound Works

How does sound work? It truly is a miracle that we can perceive sound. Have you ever thought about the number of events that must take place before you hear a sound? Some expert said that, is to be able to perceive sound, a complex set of these events must take place in a very specific order. If one of these events doesn’t occur, or changes the way it handles its task, we may not even hear a single whisper.

What we perceive as Sound is the result of air molecules bumping one against the next from the source to our ear (and eventually processed as electrical signals that our brain can understand). We call this ‘Vibration’. As the molecules are disturbed at the source, they vibrate. As they vibrate, they bump against the closest molecule which also begins to vibrate. In this way, sound reaches our ears from the source.
