Is there anything inaccurate or plain wrong about the following statement
Vibrating objects create sound. As the vibrating object moves back and forth it bangs into neighbouring air molecules. The air molecules start to move in the same pattern as the vibrating object (back and forth). They then knock into their neighbours. In this way the sound is passed across air as a wave of vibrations.
My main concern is whether it is ok to say it is a wave of vibrations. I think this is intuitive as kids can imagine a vibrating object and then a ripple effect in the air
