Music and everything else we hear is made up of sound waves. Learn how pressure in the air transforms into sound with Groupon's explanation:
Sound Waves: Voices Swimming in the Air
Though humans only evolved ears to make wearing funny glasses possible, the organs happen to bear a key side effect: they are delicately, exquisitely attuned to receive—and translate—sound waves. The dish-like shape of the ear helps direct the waves into the ear canal, where they eventually strike the eardrum—a thin, tiny membrane that vibrates at the same amplitude and frequency as the waves themselves. Next, a trio of tiny bones in the middle ear—in fact, the tiniest bones in the entire body—move in tandem with the vibrations, thereby transferring the pressure waves into mechanical energy.
From there, the wave travels through the fluid contained in a coiled tube known as the cochlea. This tube is lined with microscopic hair cells, each tuned to a specific frequency. When the frequency of the wave matches the right hair cell, a nerve impulse sends a message to the brain to interpret the sound. Through this instantaneous process, the transformation of air pressure to sound is complete, and we finally perceive the invisible miracle of a siren blaring at 3 a.m.
