What are examples of sound waves?

Answer

Sound waves are a combination of compression and rarefaction, by which sound is created, most often in an elastic medium such as air. Examples of sound waves include playing an instrument, listening to the radio, listening to the television, listening to your stereo, cd player, mp3 player, iPod, or other sound-producing device, blowing across an opened bottle top, and running your finger around the edge of an empty or partially full glass, (the quality of sound and the sound itself is changed by whether or not the glass is empty or partially full.)
