What is Sound?

8 June 2015

Sound is Kinetic energy in motion.
One full vibration cycle is known as just that, a cycle.
The frequency in which this occurs (how many cycles per second) is measured in hertz (Hz)
Sound vibrations range between 20Hz and 20Khz (or 20 000 Hz)
Examples:
The low rumble of a truck is around 30Hz to 100Hz (you feel this more than hear it)
The sound of our voices are around 1000hz – 5000hz
A high pitched whistle is around 10 000hz – 15 000hz
