In physics, sound is a vibration that propagates as a typically audible mechanical
wave of pressure and displacement, through a medium such as air or water.
A sound wave is the pattern of disturbance caused by the movement of energy
traveling through a medium (such as air, water, or any other liquid or solid matter)
Sound is a mechanical wave that results from the back and forth vibration of the
particles of the medium through which the sound wave is moving. If a sound ...
Sound waves are the vibrations that pass through an object or material. These
waves are actually produced when the sound hits with the materials and objects
This lesson will explain what sound waves are, discuss features of sound waves,
and provide some examples and uses they have in everyday life. A...
An introduction to sound waves with illustrations and explanations. Includes
examples of simple wave forms.
Sound propagates through air as a longitudinal wave. The speed of sound is
determined by the properties of the air, and not by the frequency or amplitude of
Sound is a wave that is produced by objects that are vibrating. It travels through a
medium from one point, A, to another point, B.
a wave that is formed when a sound is made and that moves through the air and
carries the sound to your ear. Source: Merriam-Webster's Learner's Dictionary.
Some sound waves are periodic, in that the change from equilibrium (average
atmospheric pressure) to maximum compression to maximum rarefaction back to
