Ultrasonics is the study and application of the energy of sound waves vibrating at frequencies greater than 20,000 cycles per second, which is beyond the range of human hearing. Sound is transmitted from one place to another by means of waves. The general method involved in generating ultrasonic waves is the rapid vibration of a dense material. The vibrations produced by this material then cause air surrounding the material to begin vibrating with the same frequency. These vibrations then spread out in the form of ultrasonic waves. There are numerous practical applications of ultrasonics. The first widespread use was in underwater exploration.

Ultrasonic waves proved to be an excellent method for determining the depth of water. Ultrasonics also are used to map the shape of lake and ocean floors. Submarines use ultrasonic waves to maintain secret contact with each other. In industry, ultrasonic waves have been used in the testing of machinery and machine parts. With ultrasonic technology, flaws in machinery can be detected and repaired without having to take the machinery apart. Ultrasonic methods have also been used to diagnose problems in the human body. Because they can vibrate the particles through which they pass, ultrasonic waves are often used to shake, or even destroy, certain materials. An example of this procedure is ultrasonic emulsification. In this technique, two liquids that normally do not mix with each other (such as oil and water) are made to vibrate until they are blended. This technique is also used to remove air bubbles from molten metals before casting so that the finished piece will be free of cavities. Doctors use ultrasound to break up kidney stones and gallstones, thus avoiding invasive surgery.

Ultrasonic vibration also can be used to kill bacteria in milk and other liquids. Some inventors are attempting to perfect ultrasonic laundering, using high-frequency vibrations to shake dirt and other particles out of clothing. Ultrasonic whistles, which cannot be heard by human beings, are audible to dogs and are used to summon them.
