I am trying to form a sentence. Would you please help me form it?

Which of the sentences is proper?

1. It is a stick of 5-10 cm and when turned in the air disseminates sound waves.

2. It is a stick of 5-10 cm and when turned in the air gives off sound waves.

3. It is a stick of 5-10 cm and when turned in the air gives out sound waves.

    Disseminates / produces / generates / gives off are all possibilities, but I'm afraid the rest of the sentence has multiple problems.

    I also like sdgraham's suggestion of "emits."
