''Vibration''' refers to mechanical oscillations about an equilibrium point. The oscillations may be [[periodic function|periodic]] such as the motion of a pendulum or [[random]] such as the movement of a tire on a gravel road.

Vibration' refers to mechanical oscillations about an equilibrium point. The oscillations may be periodic such as the motion of a pendulum or random such as the movement of a tire on a gravel road.

The study of sound and vibration are closely related. Sound, or "pressure waves", are generated by vibrating structures (e.g. vocal cords); these pressure waves can also induce the vibration of structures (e.g. ear drum). Hence, when trying to reduce noise it is often a problem in trying to reduce vibration.


Detection

Mechanoreceptors such as the Pacinian corpuscle in the skin help in the detection of vibration by humans
