- Sound energy moves through a process of vibrating air molecules, which create a chain reaction of vibrating molecules that the ear perceives as sound.
- The farther you are from the origin of the sound, the less the chance that you will be able to feel the vibration, and thus the less you can hear the sound.
- The size of the object that begins the wave of sound energy will produce a different type of wave than another object that is a different size.
- Sound energy, because it is based on vibrations, must travel through something: if you have a vacuum of space such as a black hole, there can be no sound.
Sound energy is the energy produced by vibrating sound waves.
Facts About Sound Energy
An example of sound energy is the small amount of vibrations collected by the outer ear which let a person hear.
