WEFOUNDReverberation Sounds and Rings


In physics , sound is a vibration that typically propagates as an audible wave of pressure, through a transmission medium such as a gas, liquid or solid.

In human physiology and psychology , sound is the reception of such waves and their perception by the brain . [1] Humans can hear sound waves with frequencies between about 20 Hz and 20 kHz. Sound above 20 kHz is ultrasound and below 20 Hz is infrasound . Different animal species have varying hearing ranges .

Acoustics is the interdisciplinary science that deals with the study of mechanical waves in gases, liquids, and solids including vibration, sound, ultrasound, and infrasound. A scientist who works in the field of acoustics is an acoustician , while someone working in the field of acoustical engineering may be called an acoustical engineer . [2] An audio engineer , on the other hand, is concerned with the recording, manipulation, mixing, and reproduction of sound.

Sound is a mechanical wave which travels through a medium from one location to another. This motion through a medium occurs as one particle of the medium interacts with its neighboring particle, transmitting the mechanical motion and corresponding energy to it. This transport of mechanical energy through a medium by particle interaction is what makes a sound wave a mechanical wave.

A reverberation is quite different than an echo. The distinction between an echo and a reverberation is depicted in the animation below.
