In case of duplicate ques- j tions, the author will decide the winner. Today's winner is: Carol Schinella, .East Northport, N.Y. Why are we able to hear things? We can hear because our ears pick up sound waves. These sound 'waves are vibrations, and when they reach the brain they are turned into sound. '•../: : I Vibrations set the air in motion, and the air travels in sound waves. If you strike a key ort the piano and then feel its i string, you will feel the vibra- i tions. Your ears catch this as a | tone. i A tone is a sound with a def- jinite pitch, or given rate of vibration. The human ear can hear vibrations ranging from 15 or 16 a second (very low pitch) to 20,000 a second (very shrill). Sound waves travel outward from a source in ever widening circles. We are able to hear when these waves reach our ears. So it is very important to have those waves reach our ears. And that is why we have ears on the outside of the head. They have very little to do with he actual "hearing." They act as cups that catch the sound waves. The parts of the ear that hear lie inside the head. The outer ear bounces sound nto the canal that leads into the head. About an inch inside, he sound waves meet a thin, ight, sheet of tjssue called the eardrum The ; sound waves make tho eardrum vibrate. •The vibration is passed on to. three tiny bones that fit together in a rhain about a quarter of an inch 'ong. The eardrum and hese littJe bones make up the middle ear. Then the vibrations pass on to the inner ear. This is called the cochlea The inner ear is filled with flu'd and the vibrations set this fluid in motion. The inner ear also contains thousands of tiny hair cells. The moving fluid masses the sound message on ihrough the tiny hairs to the nerves. The nerves carry it to toe brain — and the brain turns it into sounds. The brain tells you-what you are hearing.
