How Speakers Work?
The mechanism of a speaker is quite simple; speakers are air pistons move back on negative cycle of the signal and forth on the positive cycle creating different degrees of air pressure at different frequencies. Technically what happens in a speaker or loudspeaker is that alternate current from an amplifier runs to the speaker and through the voice coil and voice coil turns it into electromagnet. That makes a cycle and makes a magnetic field between it and permanent magnet in the driver. As the current alternates between positive and negative the magnets are attracted and repulsed which makes the cone to move back and forth and emits the soothing sound of Bach or Korn.
Its not like that when you hear the word “speaker” that it will be a box having circles in it and hole also. Its different from that actually is a loudspeaker system and having more than one kind speakers in it, those are called its drivers.
We all know how useful internet is in today’s world. It’s your ultimate source of pretty much everything you need information on, your medium of staying in touch with friends and relatives across the globe, it is what you use to express your feelings and opinions on anything and everything you feel strongly about, and it may even be your bread and butter. In short, in this era where technology has pretty much taken our lives over, it’s impossible to imagine what life without internet would be.
But you must remember that though it connects you to the world, it can expose you to the world as well. What most innocent web users don’t realize is that anonymity is the best policy when using the internet. Initially, it’s a great feeling to see your name pop up when you search it on Google, but what you don’t realize is that, that Stumbleupon photo blog that was automatically generated when you added your ratings to that nude photo has also made it to all the search engines. Similarly, your funny home movies, your age, your personal information that you carelessly added to your MySpace or Facebook or other social networking profiles all becomes public information for anyone who wants to see it.
