Sound produced by human ?
Asked by Renu | 20th Sep, 2019, 03:11: PM
In humans, the sound is produced by the voice box or the larynx.
The voice box is at the upper end of the windpipe.
When we speak, the two vocal cords in the larynx vibrate and produce sound.
These vocal cords are stretched across the voice box or larynx so that there is a narrow slit between them for the passage of air.
The vocal cords are about 20 mm long in men, 15 mm long in women (5 mm shorter) and they are very short in children.

- Sir can you give more qutions theoretical questions about oscillation to me
- How do loudness and pitch of sound depend on amplitude and frequency respectively?
- For a simple pendulum; define:- a) One oscillation b) Time period c) Frequency
- properties of sound
- Pick the odd one out and state the reason for your choice: Time period, Pitch, Shrill, Loudness.
- Give reason why a large drum produces a louder sound than a small drum?
- Why a player does tightens or loosens a guitar wire before he starts playing the same?
