A sound wave is a type of pressure wave caused by the vibration of an object in a conductive medium such as air. When the object vibrates, it sends a series of waves that can be interpreted as sound. For example, when someone hits a drum, causes the membrane of the drum to vibrate, and vibration is transmitted through the air, where it can reach the ear of a listener. Not all sound waves are in the audible range. Humans hear about 12 Hz to 20 kHz, which means that sounds above and below this range
Wave is the one of important thing that needed to objects but based on the researchers before by their observation in basic acoustic levitator has two main parts ; transducer, which is a vibrating surface that makes sound, and a reflector. Often, the transducer and reflector have concave surfaces to help focus the sound. A sound wave travels away from the transducer and bounces off the reflector. Three basic properties of this traveling, reflecting wave help it to suspend objects in midair.
