how do we hear sound

Asked by Manvi Raghuvanshi | 24th Aug, 2015, 06:52: PM

Expert Answer:

  • Sound is produced and heard when a body vibrates in a medium.
  • The vibrations of the body cause vibrations in the particles of the medium which travel in the form of waves.
  • When these vibrations reach our ears, sound is heard.
  • Our ears are sensitive only to a limited range of frequencies: 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz.
