Expert Answer:

When two sound waves of slightly different frequencies , travelling in a medium along the same direction , superimpose on each other, the intensity of the resultant sound at a particular position rises and falls regularly with time. this phenomenon of regular variation in the intensity of sound with time at a particular position , when two sound waves of nearly equal frequencies superimpose on each other is called beats.
