Best Answer

Some waves can transfer energy only through liquids and solids, but not through gases or vacuum. Some waves, like sound waves, can transfer energy through gases, liquids and solids but not through vacuum. And some waves, notably electromagnetic waves, can transfer energy through vacuum as well as matter.

By which mode of heat transfer heat is transferred in solids?

the process of transfer of heat energy in solids is known as conduction.. For more info-- the process of transfer of heat energy in liquids and gases is known as convection.. And the process of transfer of heat energy without any material medium is known as radiation..


Why do mechanical waves travel faster through solids and liquids than gases?

Mechanical waves involve the physical transfer of vibration from one particle to another within the medium. Denser materials (solids and liquids), have closer particles so this transfer of energy occurs more quickly. :)


What method heat transfer can take place through solids liquids gases?

Convection


What type of energy travels as vibrations through solids liquids and gases?

kinetic energy


Why are solids better heat conductors than liquids?

Solids are better heat conductors than liquids because their particles are closely packed and connected. In solids, heat energy moves easily through vibrations and strong bonds between particles. Liquids, on the other hand, have looser arrangements and weaker connections between particles, making it harder for heat to travel through them.
