Best Answer

Sound is an energy wave, and as the wave hits the atoms or molecules of a medium (liquid, gas or solid) a very slight amount of the initial energy is expended at impact. This impact slams the atoms or molecules into others, spreading out the wave and eventually dissipating the energy originally produced.
