sound waves bounce off of walls. they need air to travel.
Particles. They can't travel through a vacumm
no they do not, they can travel through vacuums and do not need particles to travel as sound waves do. radio waves are transverse waves whereas sound waves are not
Sound waves need a medium in order to propogate. Light waves can travel without a medium. The speed of light is 3*108m/s.
It doesn't. Sound waves need a medium to travel through in order to move beyond the source. Most of space is an empty vacuum, and thus sound waves have nothing to travel through.
Sound waves need a medium to travel in. You cannot hear anything in space because space is a vacuum.
Sound waves need some form of matter as a medium through which to propagate.
Sound wave do not travel through vaccum as it need medium to travel.
Sound travels in waves, these waves need a medium to travel through. Think about water in the ocean, without the water, there would be no waves. Same concept.
A sound wave is essentially fast changing sound pressure. Longitudinal sound waves need a medium to travel through in order to exist.
Sound waves don't just travel the slowest in a vacuum, they don't travel at all. The reason is that sound waves, like all mechanical waves, need a medium to travel through.
They need air.
Sound waves need a physical material to carry them, but electromagnetic waves don't.
Yes.Yes, sound waves do require a medium to travel through.Yes.They are pressure waves - and they need something (medium) to compress and rarefy.Yes. Sound waves are compression waves. If there's no medium, there's nothing there to compress!
Sound waves need to cause vibrations in a medium in order to travel. Vibrations cannot be created in a vacuum, as there is no matter present.
Some waves called mechanical waves e.g sound need a medium to travel through while electromagnetic waves need no medium to travel through e.g light
First of all, it needs a source. But mostly, it needs vibrations. Depending on how strong the vibrations are determine how long the sound wave will travel.
Mechanical waves.For example, sound waves, ocean waves, etc.Many waves need a medium to travel: sound waves, water waves, and seismic waves.Electromagnetic waves do not need a medium.
Since space is a vacuum, sound waves do not travel through space. Sound waves need a substance to travel through, since there is nothing in a vacuum, sound waves have nothing to travel through. Thus, a cymbal struck in space would not make an audible sound.
sound can not travel though space hope this helps
Sound waves need matter to travel through, and wood is matter, so yes, sound waves travel through wood. They travel through wood faster than they do through air, as wood is denser than air.
sound wave need material becuse sound wave formed by compresion and rarefaction
No, ultrasonic wave do not travel at all in a vacuum.
Yes, mechanical waves do need a medium in order to travel. Other waves, such as light, do not (thus they can travel through space).
That's basically what sound waves are all about. Sound waves mean that energy is transmitted, by bumping, from one atom (or group of atoms) to the next.
Yes. Electromagnetic waves, like light, can travel through a vacuum, they need no medium in order to be transmitted. Unlike sound waves, which are compression waves what rely on matter in order to be transmitted.
