Seven Things About the Ear

  1. The ear is classified into three parts: outer, middle, and inner

  2. The outer ear is designed to funnel sound in a way to make us aware of direction from which it is coming.

  3. The middle ear actually increases the volume of the incoming sounds

  4. The three smallest bones in the human body are located in the middle ear

  5. The inner ear produces and sends the electrical signal to the brain

  6. The ear processes energy through four modes: acoustic, mechanical, hydraulic, and electrical.

  7. The ear is designed to process sound 24/7 for an entire lifetime.
