Frequency Recognition

The purpose of this portion of the project is to see how many wavelengths of a tone it takes for a human ear to recognize that it is a tone.

Subjects were played 3 related tones for five seconds each. Then they were played selected number of wavelengths of those tones and asked if they could identify them. The test tones began at 1 wavelength and got increasingly longer.

Results:

For the low range, the average was 9 wavelengths. For the middle range, it was 6. For the high range, it was 15.

Overall, the average number needed was 11 wavelengths.

time delay with ears
Time Delay with Ears
  • Distance between ears is about 9-14 cm
  • .12m / 340m/s = .0035 sec
  • Used Audacity to simulate this time delay between ears
  • Time delay creates the illusion of the sound being louder in one ear.

  • Slowly increased the time delay starting from zero to find the threshold for the recognition of this time delay for the human brain.
  • Found that the brain is extremely sensitive to time delay.

  • Did extensive studies on three individuals.
