The atmosphere exerts pressure on all objects in it. When a vibrating body moves in air, it creates slight disturbances of the AMBIENT atmospheric pressure. The AMPLITUDE of these pressure variations is called the sound pressure variation, whereas the effective pressure variation is 0.707 the maximum value. The oscillating variations in sound pressure (called the WAVEFORM of the sound) PROPAGATE in the form of a SOUND WAVE.
