The ear is made up of three parts: the outer, middle, and inner ear. The outer ear consists of the pinna, ear canal and eardrum. The middle ear consists of the ossicles (malleus, incus, stapes) and ear drum. The inner ear consists of the cochlea, the auditory (hearing) nerve and the brain. All three parts of the ear are important for detecting sound by working together to move sound from the outer part through the middle and into the inner part of the ear. Ears also help to maintain balance. In the diagram of the ear below, you’ll see the detail of ear’s anatomy.
Sound that we hear causes the eardrum and its tiny attached bones in the middle portion of the ear to vibrate, and the vibrations are conducted to the nearby cochlea. The spiral-shaped cochlea is part of the inner ear; it transforms sound into nerve impulses that travel to the brain. On average, people can hear sounds in the frequencies between 20 to 20,000 Hertz. We also provide you with the worksheet version of the diagram for any evalutional purpose.
