The Science of Sound

The Science of Sound

Sound travels by air waves. For instance: If you knock, you hear a sound because when you knock it makes the air molecules vibrate. When they vibrate, they spread away from the noise. The air molecules' vibration gives it to another air molecule etc. Eventually, the air molecules go inside your ear and begin to shake. Your nerves tell your brain that they heard a sound.
