Sound waves transmit sound through a solid, as well as air and water. Sound waves cannot be transmitted through a vacuum.
Water- It is denser, and sound travels better through a denser substance.
Sound travels better through wood than water
Sound does not tansmit or absorb water. But water both transmits and absorbs sound.
Sounds travel better through denser objects and since water is denser than wood, sound travels through it better.
I suppose it would just like water all liquid transmits sound.
Yes... because the detection of sound waves transmits pressure waves more efficiently in water.(pg. 903 from 8th edition Biology by Raven, johnson, Losos, Mason, & Singer)
mist. the sound reflects off the water drops.
Sound can travel better through denser objects, so since stone is denser than water and air, sound can travel faster through it.
Yes. Sound depends on the medium it is in. Sound vibrates that medium to produce waves at different frequencies. Sound travels better the more dense the medium. Sound travels faster in water than air and better in steel than in water.
Sound conductance is in part a function of density. Water conducts sound much better than air does.
Because it is less compact.
First let me say that the transmission of light is not better through any media. The best transmission is best when in a vacuum. All other media slows light down or divides the frequencies by refraction. Sound however is transmitted better the denser the media it is traveling in. As air transmits sound better when it is cold or wet (getting denser) it travels faster as it enters water and rock. It is a matter of the number and closeness of atoms that move the energy along by virtue of momentum transfer between atoms as they collide.
Sound travels better and faster in air because air has a lower density than water and the sound vibrations can travel faster through them and with more accuracy, whereas in water the vibrations slowly die out and do not travel well because the density of the water will likely muffle and obstruct the sound waves. sound travels better in air than in water as sound travels in vibrations.. it travels faster in water than in air but it travels better in air.....
Because sound needs an median to pass through and in space there is no median. In explanation: sound can actually be heard better through some objects than others, such as through water rather than air.
Waters' density is higher than air. Therefore it transfers the sound energy better. Steel being more dense still transmits sound through it even better. I would like to add -- try this - have someone hit two stones together in the air - and hear the sound then repeat the exercise with your head under water and have your friend hit the two stones together under water the results will be SO different as the water transports the sound so much more efficiently and faster than air Reason? Easy - water molecules are closer together than the molecules that are in air (another way of saying water is denser than air)
Sound travels through water much better than it travels through air. In air, sound travels at about 330 m/sec (metres per second). In seawater it travels at about 1,490 m/s (better 1.49km/sec). Sound also travels much further through water than it does though air. This is the way humpback whales can communicate over very long distances with their singing.
Sound travels faster through water.
Water, the denser the substance, the better it is at carrying sound waves.
sound travels faster through water than air.
sound can travel through wood and water like if you are in the pool you can make sound of bubble with your mouth under water
Yes sound can go through water because when you say hi under water you are producing air buble that make sound.
An aquifer transmits ground water freely.
I am not sure about wood, but sound travels through water VERY well.
Sound moves faster through water because cork has lots of air pockets in it and sound travels a lot slower through air.
