The a/c compressor is audible and transmits vibration through to the steering wheel, especially near idle.
It makes a noticeable whine as you speed up.
It should be moderate, not huge.
The radiator fan comes on shortly after the a/c is turned on. Some extra noise from that also, but not
a noticeable amount of additional vibration.
A bad motor mount, or a set of stiffer aftermarket motor mounts or mount inserts can increase the
vibration a bit also especially when the a/c is on.
...or, your compressor could be going.
