Example of Sound Energy

Sound energy is a form of energy derived from vibratory energy inherent in sound. This energy creates vibratory waves, which transfer resonance to materials and through the atmosphere. Sound energy can actually break glass and destroy buildings at the right frequencies. The most powerful sound energies are largely within the audible and infrasound (low frequency sound, inaudible) but very high frequencies are the ones that break hard, brittle structures like glass. Infrasound, in the form produced by woofers, can physically damage human tissue. (Note: Industrial high cycle noises and noisy amplified music have been proven to damage hearing.)
