How does the ear work 2?



Continue from previous page point 4th.


1st - When the mechanical signal (movement / vibration) hits / vibrate the oval window - it causes a "WAVE" to flow from the oval window's gate into the deep chamber.


2nd - Flowing through the small hole at the end into the bottom chamber.


3rd - Finally hits the "Round Window" which acts as some kind of a pressure release, but not all.


4th - Some standing motion / wave will flow back and forth the chamber between the oval window and round window. Especially when it is too loud.


5th - During which time, all the motions are picked-up by the hairlike-nerves. There are around 150,000 hairs.


6th - Each hair contains another 140 tiny hairs or so.


7th - The hair(S) will cause the voltage generator to produce signal and sent to the brain through the "Auditory Nerve" - also equivalent to the green line.


8th - The chamber is "FLUID" filled.


9th - It is obvious now that it is the signal generators that are hearing, not the outer ear, nor the drum.
