What Is Noise?

Noise is any unwanted sound. And to control it, we must first understand how it works.

Sound is produced when a vibrating object causes air particles around it to vibrate. It travels in all directions from its source in what are commonly known as sound waves. It's similar to the way ripples move through water when a pebble is tossed into a still pond.
