Of the three mediums (gas, liquid, and solid) sound waves travel the slowest through gases, faster through liquids, and fastest through solids. This is because longitudinal waves require collisions between particles to transmit energy - in dense materials, the atoms are closer together, leading to more collisions per second, increasing the speed of transmission. Temperature also affects the speed of sound.

Why do sound waves travel better through solids liquids or gas?

Sound waves are longitudinal waves, meaning they travel through molecules bouncing off each other. Therefore, in solids where the molecules are closer to each other, sound tra

Sound waves travel through gas liquid and solids?

yes it travels through all three medium. infact sound will travle much faster through liquid and solid. remember how they show whale sounds in nature documentries??

How does sound waves travel through solids liquids and gases?

Sound waves travel through vibrations. If one particle starts vibrating it will pass on that movement to other particles that are close by. This means that sound travels quick

Do sound waves travel better through solids liquids of gas?

Sound waves travel fastest through solids as the molecules are tightly paced in solids. While in LIQUIDS and GASES molecules are far apart and there is a lesser chance of mole

Dose sound travel better through a solid a liquid or a gas?

like with many scientific problems, you have to be careful how you ask the question! What do you mean by 'best'? Fastest? Farthest? Loudest? I'll assume you meant fastest.

Does sound waves travel through gas liquids and solids true of false?

Yes sound travels through gas, liquids, and solids. All these passsound waves by vibrating. Sound can not pass through a vacuum sincethere is nothing to vibrate and carry the
