Meaning of NOISE in English
Undesired sound that is intrinsically objectionable or that interferes with other sounds being listened to.
In electronics and information theory, noise refers to those random, unpredictable, and undesirable signals, or changes in signals, that mask the desired information content. In radio, this noise is called static; in television, it is called snow. White noise is a complex signal or sound covering the entire range of component frequencies, or tones , all of which possess equal intensity.
