How to use "Footfall" in context?

Footfall is the sound of a person's footfall on a surface. The term is used in a variety of fields including acoustics, psychology, and engineering. When sound waves are produced, they oscillate in an alternating manner. When these waves strike the ground, they are scattered in all directions. If a person is walking on a surface, their footfalls will produce a distinctive sound due to the different lengths and speeds of the waves. This noise can be affected by a number of factors including the type of surface, the size, and the amount of padding underneath the surface.
