Weekly Photo Challenge: Transient

CM Transient Fotor

Sounds of a transient event

I learned something new with this Photo Challenge. The word transient had sad connotations to me so I thought I would learn more about the word and its meanings. I was surprised when I read that there is a “thing” called a transient event in electrical engineering. My husband and son are electrical engineers so this seemed like an interesting thing to try and understand a bit more! This is what I learned:

1.Another word for transient is oscillation.

2. A transient event is a short-lived burst of energy in a system caused by a sudden change of state.

3. The strings of a string instrument is characterized by transients.

4. It is fun to listen to my husband play his guitar in the morning so I could take his picture and post this today!

Lesson over!
