How does sound travel through sound waves?

Sound waves are the sound. The waves cause vibrations in the objects that they collide with, and then the vibrated objects create more waves with their vibrations. An example of this would be listening to someone on the other side of a door.


How do vibrations create sound waves?

Vibrations don't create sound waves. Rather, sound waves are vibrations: specifically, they are air molecules vibrating against your eardrum in response to changes in air pressure, caused (and provided) by the energy radiating outward from the source of the sound.

Why does sound travel in vibrations?

Because sounds are formed by vibrations, therefore there is no sound without vibrations. Furthermore, there is no vibrations without air. Consequently, sound needs air to vibrate forming waves of sound.


Are sound waves a transverse wave?

No , sound waves are longitudinal waves ,their vibrations are along the direction of travel of wave.
