Clapping is the percussion element in many forms of music. There are many ways to clap depending on how we align one hand with the other and the sound we make will depend on how fast we strike our hands and the force with which we do so. When we clap our hands we push away the air that is between our hands, this increases the air spaces near our hands. More air molecules are temporarily compressed into less space and this high air pressure wave reaches our eardrums causing us to hear the sound called a clap. This happens because our ears are sensitive to pressure waves and hence the clap of your hands.
