The Ear, Structure and How It Works
By: Ajay Pursram 8F
This journal aims to explain the structure of the Ear and how it works. The ear is one of your five senses and without an ear you wouldn’t be able to hear. Your ear helps your balance, for example if you bend down to pick up your cat, your ear will help balance you so you don't fall over.
Structure Of The Ear
This journal will explain the key parts of the ear.
The three main parts in the ear is the outer ear, the inner ear and the middle ear.
How The Ear Hears Things
The sound enters your ear and travels through your ear canal. it then travels to your eardrums in the middle ear. The sound vibrates as it travels and the volume increases, the sound then changes from air to liquid. After that the movement of the hair cells sends electrical signals through the auditory nerve up to the brain.
In this scientific journal I have found out that the ear is a very delicate but complicated part of the body, it is an interesting thing to research and despite what topics we have covered here but there is still a lot to learn. The ear may look simple on the outside but its a whole new world inside.
