Vibration it derivates from vibrating, a Latin language word. Its about process and the consequence of vibrating : make something move, swing, shake or be moved. The concept can be used in different ways according to context .
In the field of physical , a vibration occurs when they propagate elastic waves that cause tension and deformation in a continuous medium. It can be said that vibrations involve movements that are repeated around an equilibrium position (which is the resulting position when the force is zero).
It should be noted that elastic waves are tension disorders that spread through an elastic medium. When a earthquake , a surface vibration is recorded as there are elastic waves (in this case called seismic waves ) that spread.
Earthquakes, also known as earthquake, are phenomena characterized by a strong shaking of the earth's crust that usually lasts a short time, although in some cases it leaves terrible consequences, such as the destruction of towns and cities, in addition to a large number of dead and wounded.
In music, the concept of vibration is essential, since it is thanks to this phenomenon of physics that most instruments can emit sounds; In fact, even those who do not seem to depend on it, such as those of wind, also take advantage of it to enrich the timbre of the sounds every time the air comes into contact with its walls.
As with many other species of animals, we humans have the so-called strings vowels , which are not really strings themselves, but a set of membranous lips or folds that produce different sounds when vibrating. It all starts with inhalation, since the air is in charge of gently rubbing the strings to generate such movement and keep it as long as necessary. The sound also causes the vibration of certain bone parts, which are known as resonators, which function as natural amplifiers.
A molecular vibration is one that affects atoms of a molecule . The vibrations can be of flexion (which modify the angle between two links) or tension (they generate a continuous alteration in the distance that exists between the atoms around the axis of the bond).
The idea of electronic vibration On the other hand, it refers to the movement made by the electrons when they move through the conductors and the components of a system where a potential difference is applied.
In everyday language, vibration is the trembling movement that performs something . A cell phone (mobile) in state Vibration, to name a case, is one that begins to move repeatedly when you enter a call or message.
Video games are also related to this concept, since many of the current controls include motors that vibrate when the program requires it, to intensify game situations such as a crash, a blow or an explosion . The first company that massified these engines was Nintendo, when in 1997 it launched a accessory for your console Nintendo 64 called Rumble Pak , which had to be inserted in the lower part of the remote and required the use of two AAA batteries to function.
It was not long before the other companies copied the idea of the Japanese giant, and soon this function became a fundamental feature of video game controls, so many young people do not know that Nintendo propelled it. At present, on the other hand, it is no longer necessary to use batteries if the remote is connected by cable, since it receives the Energy directly from the console.
