♠/Slide whistles and harmony/Beats simple
The top and bottom graphs of time versus pressure in this audio signal are related. The graph show two signals. When you add them together you get the bottom graph. When the two signals add together it is called destructive interference. Constructive interference
occurs when the parabola can be seen when the peak
of one signal matches the other's and the amplitude increases is maximized. Since this is a signal of pressure versus time, the constructive an destructive events alternate in time, create a loud-soft repetition known as beats.
