Speed of Sound

Parent Category: Physics
The rate of a sound wave, the speed of sound is calculated at 343 meters per second (1,125 feet per second.
Speed of sound is c ≈ 331 + 0.6 × T. T = Temperature. Speed of sound at 20 °C is c ≈ 331 + 0.6 × 20 = 343 m/s.
It's 343 m/sSpeed of sound in air is c ≈ 331 + 0.6 × T. T = Temperature. Speed of sound in air at 20 °C is c ≈ 331 + 0.6 × 20 = 343 m/s.
Sound waves are like ripples in a pond that radiate around the object. An aeroplane travelling at sub-sonic speed will be travelling behind the sound that it has emitted. When the aeroplane reaches the exact speed of sound, the sound it is producing will accompany it on its journey. This can be very...
SONAR is an application based on the speed of sound. Sound waves are emitted, they bounce off object and some are captured by a receiver. The time taken between emitting the sound and receiving it, multiplied by the speed of sound in that medium, gives the distance that the sound has travelled. The...
  the bell x-1 is the first piloted airplane to fly faster than sound.
Amplitude. An increase in this property will result in an increase in volume of the sound.
Speed of sound in air is c ≈ 331 + 0.6 × T. T = Temperature in °C. Speed of sound in air at 20°C is c ≈ 331 + 0.6 × 20 = 343 m/s.
When the observer is moving relative to the wave source, the observer experiences the Doppler Effect. The motion of the source causes a change in the sound's wavelength. Wavelength is inversely proportional to frequency. The apparent frequency is given by the equation:f = (v-vr)/(v-vs ) * f0where f...
  == Answer ==   It could be a failing speed odmeter cable. remomove the cable from the transmission and see if the noise stops.
The greater the frequency, the greater the pitch. The greater the amplitude, the greater the volume.
Yes could be heard. Because the source of sound is moving but medium through which sound is propagated is stable. "edit from madeuce"I understand you could be heard. There was not enough room to type the question fully. What I want to know is when you heard the sound would it come across as it was...
Astronomers don't use the speed of sound as a basis for measuring  distances for a number of reason, but mainly because the distances  being measured are quite large. The speed of light (300000000 m/s)  is about six times faster than the speed of sound (~343 m/s),  making it a better unit of...

The expression for the speed of sound in a fluid is the square root of the value of the ratio of the bulk modulus of elasticity of the medium to its density. As the bulk modulus of elasticity of water is very much greater than air, the speed of sound is very much greater in water medium.
The medium in which it travels through
if they are in a void no matter how much the object vibrates it  won't produce any sound waves
Not enough information. At what distance from the coconut is the observer of the sound.
antinodes(:
Wave speed is simply frequency multiplied by wavelength. 1.2m * 250Hz = 300m/s
Sound travels at different speeds depending on the medium. Sound will travel the fastest through solids.
The speed of sound is proportional to the density of the transmission medium; In simplest terms, the more dense the medium, the faster sound travels. This is why the speed required to break the 'sound barrier' changes based on altitude; at sea level, for example, sound travels at approximately 761...
Speed of sound in air is c ≈ 331 + 0.6 × T. T = Temperature. Speed of sound at 1°C is c ≈ 331 + 0.6 × 1 = 331.6 m/s.
they go through a medium which makes them break when  they hit the floor a solid
Yes, F 16 fighter jet can travel faster than speed of sound. Its Maximum speed: At sea level: Mach 1.2 (915 mph, 1,470 km/h)At altitude: Mach 2+ (1,500 mph, 2,410 km/h)The speed of sound is around 343.2 metres per second, 1236 km per hour (768mph)
No, if you are born deaf or become deaf later in life, you are unable to hear sounds. However, some deaf people learn to "feel" sound waves, and therefore giving them some perception of sound.
Ultrasound is a sound generated at a frequency above the human hearing range, i.e. above 20,000Hz. Ultrasound is useful as it's high frequency means it is a high energy sound wave, allowing it to penetrate easily through thicker, more dense mediums. The most common use of ultrasound is sonography,...
the speed of light in vacuum is 300,000km / s, the speed of sound  in air is 340m / it s approximately thus dela light speed is far  greater than the speed of sound (in any medium)
Mostly on temperature and composition of the medium it ispropagating through. You may not think temperature, but it doesplay a major role. There is also a weak dependence on frequency(pitch) and pressure. The propagation of sound depends on molecules moving and pushingagainst other molecules....
Wavelength depends on the frequency, or pitch of the wave. Sound travels at about 1125 ft/second at sea level. Divide speed by frequency to get wavelength.
Sound travels at 340.29 metres per second in air at sea level.
It decreases.This is not just apparent. The frequency emitted by the siren is constant, but the frequency arriving at the observer really does change.
Usual variation in air pressure does not change the audibility of sound.
-- bullets -- supersonic aircraft -- the tip of a bull-whip when cracked -- solar-wind particles emitted by the sun -- objects in orbit around the sun -- meteors and returning spacecraft entering the atmosphere
Close! Actually, Mach-1 is the speed of sound. anything above Mach-1 (Mach-(1-5)) is supersonic, all the way up to Mach-5, at which point an object is called "Hypersonic". Sometimes speeds above Mach-10 are referred to as "High-Hypersonic". So, a jet moving at Mach-1 wouldn't actually be traveling...
Sound cannot travel through a vacumNo. Sound waves can not travel in a vacuum. Sound works by having molecules of air knock against other molecules of air. Then those molecules knock against other molecules. The energy is transferred from one molecule to the next. These molecules we hear...
A microphone can be connected to an oscilloscope, and will display the frequency and amplitude of any sound.
S being the symbol for a unit of speed, a unit of measurement is  about 761 mph in air and at sea level it is about 660 mph at jet  altitudes. Which equals to approximately 340 to 295 m/s at aircraft  in SI units.
I don't know exactly but there is time to alter it's directionunlike light and sound can be carried in light in the form of a anaccumulated radiation flash which theoretically can cause adeteriorative point of demarcation to life form cells
See the links below. Remember to distinguish where necessary between the universal gas constant R (joules per mole Kelvin) and the particular gas constant R (joules per kilogram Kelvin)
From air it sounds clear, and from water, it gurgles.
After becoming a Fighter Ace in World War II; Chuck Yeager was a test pilot and flew the Bell XS-1 which was built to try to fly faster than the speed of sound. The Bell XS-1 had what was referred to as a "flying tail" so that the shock wave (caused by flying in the trans sonic region), which...
The Bell X-1 rocket plane first exceeded the speed of sound on 19 January 1946. The piolet reported big problems with serious shaking of the aircraft that we now understand to be as a result of the sonic boom
Bass notes are low in frequency, and since the speed of sound is a constant, then the wavelength will be long. Therefore, the sound wave will look "stretched out" due to the long wavelength and probably tall as bass sounds tend to be larger in amplitude.
Why is produced rarefaction and condensation during the sound travelling in the medium?
Speakers on computers and electronics
work is the product of force and displacement As velocity is rate of change of displacement, so yes, velocity does effect work.
Based on the equation velocity = wavelength * frequency, frequency is dependent on both wavelength and the velocity of the wave. Also, frequency is also directly related to the pitch of a sound.
It depends on temperature, humidity and pressure, but at sea level the speed of sound in air is around 340 metres per second, or approximately a Kilometre in 3 seconds or a Mile in 5 seconds.
Anything that travels faster than 330 m/s (720 mph) at sea level. Objects that break this speed are termed "Supersonic". In liquids and solid materials sound travels much faster than through gases (air). The density of the material and it's restitution coefficient are contributing factors to the...

The formula to calculate either speed, frequency or wavelength for any wave, either transverse or longitudinal is:v=fλWhere:v - Wave velocity (ms-1)f - Frequency (Hz)λ - Wavelength (m)
Sound travels faster through water.
It does. Sound requires matter to move through, and in a gas, the molecules are furthest apart. Sound can travel 17 times faster through steel than it can through air.
The speed of sound has neither to do with the sea level nor with Tucson. Speed of sound has mainly to do with the temperature of the air. Look at the link: "Speed of Sound in Air and the effective Temperature".
Ummmmm, NO.Ignore that.This describes an Echo. Assuming a perfectly smooth surface, the reflected wave travels away from the reflector in accordance with the usual angle of incidence = angle of reflection, diminishing with the square of the distance.Not all the energy is reflected fully. Some is...
Hey Ava==Take it to the garage and find out what is happening. goodluckJoe
You would hear the sound after the plane has passed.
sound moves faster though stone than water because stones  particles are closer together and vibrate faster.  +++ We can add that in general, the denser the material the  higher the speed of sound through it. 
Speed of sound in air is c ≈ 331 + 0.6 × T. T = Temperature in °C. Speed of sound in air at 20°C is c ≈ 331 + 0.6 × 20 = 343 m/s.
Sound travels about 4.3 times faster in water, liquids and non-porous solids (5,120 m/s in iron) than it does in air.
Chuck Yeager was traveling at about 740 miles per hour when he  broke the sound barrier. This speed is also known as Mach 1.
The speed of sound changes with different atmospheric conditions, but is around 340 meters per second. That's equivalent to (340 x 3,600) = 1,224 kilometers per hour
  == Answer ==   After the first aircraft that surpassed the sound barrier (Google X-15) The engineers figured out ways to smooth the transition form sub-sonic to sonic speed. This is mainly done before one is built using computer aided calculations and models in tunnels. Short answer, if...
== Answer ==   This most likely sounds like your water pump is on its way out. HAVE IT CHECKED IMMEDIATELY.
The speed of sound does not travel. In the event that an airplane's airspeed is below Mach-1, the speed of sound is faster than the speed of the airplane. On the occasion and at the moment when the true indicated airspeed of an airship or an airplane is in excess of Mach-1, the airplane is...
Speed of sound in air is c ≈ 331 + 0.6 × T. T = Temperature. Speed of sound in air at 0°C is c ≈ 331 + 0.6 × 0 = 331 m/s. Speed of sound in air at 25°C is c ≈ 331 + 0.6 × 25 = 346 m/s. The difference is 346 m/s − 331 m/s = 15 m/s.
Speed of sound in air is c ≈ 331 + 0.6 × T. T = Temperature in °C. Speed of sound in air at 20°C is c ≈ 331 + 0.6 × 20 = 343 m/s.
Sound waves are produced by vibrating matter (water, air,etc). Sound is detected by by those vibrations coming into contact with a membrane such as an eardrum.
The rebound of a wave is called a reflection, but we often use the term echo to refer to the rebounding sound wave.
Matter can travel at any speed you like, if you can pump enough energy into it. The only limit is the speed of light. If you can supply it with enough energy, then you can make the matter move as close to the speed of light as you want it to, but there is not enough energy anywhere to make it...
It can be calculated in a simple manner. The formula for finding it is: V(t) = Vo + 0.61tThis formula shows that for one degree rise in temperature, the increase in velocity will be 0.61m/s
no, not necessarily. the reason that the sound appears to be coming from way behind the jet is because light travels faster than sound. think of a firework show, the sound always comes after the flash depending on how far away you are. since the jet is far away, by the time the sound reaches you,...
Think mainly of the temperature and a little bit of the humidity. Speed of sound in air is c ≈ 331 + 0.6 × T. T = Temperature in °C. Speed of sound in air at 20°C is c ≈ 331 + 0.6 × 20 = 343 m/s.
sound waves speed 1100 ft per second.
Sound is energy of mechanical vibration transferred through a medium. Commonly the medium is air, but solids, liquids and gasses all transmit sound. Indeed, sound travels faster through liquid and solids than through gas. Sound does not propagate through a vacuum.
Starship Enterprise is a ficticious starship. On the other hand, any interplanetary mission we use nowadays will travel faster than the speed of sound; otherwise it wouldn't be worth much.
The speed of sound is constant, 760 MPH at sea level according to Mach's. The distance of audibility is greater in a colder climate. There may be other factors such as relative quiet- for similar reasons both sound- and radio waves travel better and carry further at night! This has been acknowledged...
In clear unobstructed air sound can be heard very clearly, very far away. When sound encounters glass wool or any other obstruction then sound is slowed down to a great degree or stoped altogether.
An empty room , a cave / tunnel or a big enclosed space
No. Beginning with Maj. Chuck Yeager, every pilot whose aircraft exceeded the speed of sound expired instantly.
About 761 mph at sea level.
The speed of sound, through air, at STP is: 331 m/s . Related Information: The speed of sound changes, most with temperature, slightly with humidity, and slightly with atmospheric pressure because air is not an ideal gas. Pressure has no effect on sound speed in an ideal gas. The speed of...
The speed of sound will never be equal to the speed of light, except perhaps in some very weird materials which slow down the speed of light tremendously.
