Human Ear Diagram
A brief description of the human ear along with a well-labelled diagram is given below for reference. Pinna/auricle is the outermost section of the ear. The external auditory canal links the exterior ear to the inner or the middle ear. The tympanic membrane, also known as the eardrum, separates the outer ear from the inner ear.
Human ear is a sense organ responsible for hearing and body balance. The outer ear receives the sound waves and transmits them down the ear canal to the eardrum. This causes the eardrum to vibrate and sound is produced. The diagram of ear is important from Class 10 and 12 perspective and is usually asked in the examinations.
