We think of the sound made by snapping our fingers as being really fast, but how fast is it? I'm guessing, it must be at least tens of milliseconds in duration.

The level of the heard/recorded sound takes about two milliseconds to decay ...

But the event will be of shorter duration, the decay-period is in part the ear-drum/microphone-diaphragm ringing.

[ I'm assuming there is no reverberation from the room ]
