  • As a result, audible sound is defined as sound waves with frequencies ranging from 20Hz to 20kHz.
  • If the audible frequency range is present, the human ear is sensitive to every minute pressure fluctuation in the air.
  • Example: Waves produced by vibrating sitar, guitar, organ pipes, flutes, shehnai, etc.
