Example: Audible sound waves have a frequency ranging between approximately 20 Hz to 20 000 Hz. This means that at any point along the path of the sound wave, the pressure will oscilate from high to low 20 to 20000 times every second.

In digital audio the maximum frequency that can be correctly recreated is half the sampling frequency/[[sampling rate]]. So with 44.1kHz [[sampling rate]], frequencies can be recreated up to 22.05kHz.

The frequency of a wave refers to how many times per second the wave transitions from its highest point to its lowest point and back again. This is typically measured in hertz (Hz), or number of cycles per second. The frequency of a wave determines its pitch. High frequency waves have a high pitch, and lower frequency waves have a lower pitch. The average human can hear frequencies from 15 or 20Hz to roughly 20,000Hz (20kHz).
