Nothing really apart from that anoying noice the computer makes, its kind of like the sound when you try to connect to the internet .

Its usually really noisey but I'm home alone because my parents are at work and its mid-term break, its really errie at my house right now because I'm not used hearing to near sillance.

I dont think that makes any sense because you cant hear sillance, but I cant word it any different, hopefully you know what I mean because at the momment I dont :?

P.S. can you hear sillance?

Nothing right now. Although a few minutes ago I was watching the 6th season of Gilmore Girls on DVD so I heard the voices of Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Scott Patterson, Edward Hermann, Kelly Bishop, Melissa McCarthy, Liza Weil, Matt Czurchy (sp?), and many others from the cast...

When everything is silent you hear ringing (white noise) so not really. You can hear it as you drift off to sleep as your ears get more sensitive.

Power pylons give off a low frequency sound, due to the massive amount of electronic current moving backwards and forwards. I am guessing that this sound is at 50Hz because this is the A.C frequency of mains supply. As for other forms of electrical sound, i'm guessing different appliances make sounds for different reasons. TV's are good for noticing this - if you put one on mute then there is a noticible high pitched noise emitted from it.

But pylons transfer electricity at much more than 230Volts, isn't it 11,000Volts or something?

The voltage of the current in pylons is 400000 volts and the current is 1000 Amps. You can really hear the current next to a power pylon but normally you can't hear electricity in the home apart from sounds emitted by appliances. (Highest current is around 13amps.)
