How does sound travel through wires?
Sound, in terms of the vibrations that we actually hear, does not travel long-distance through wires. For phone calls and such, the "sounds" are encoded as electrical signals, which then pass through the wires, to be translated into sounds at the other end.
However, actual sound could travel short distances through wires. For example, if you tap your headphone cord right now, you may or may not hear it, depending on what kind of cord and headphones you use. This is an example of actual sound, not electrical signals, passing through a wire.
It is important to realize that the sound you hear when you tap your cord does NOT come from the speakers. They can only interpret signals, and cannot amplify actual vibrations in the wire.
It paseses through this thing called air. Sound wave can only travel in air and in current wires
Sound does not travel on the moon because there are no air molecules for the sound to travel through. Sound only can travel if there's a medium for it to travel through, like air molecules, a liquid, or solids. Sound travels through vibrations. If there is nothing for sound to travel through, the sound can travel.
air,water and some other materials like stone,glass,wires.
No, sound cannot travel through a vaccum, since there are no molecules/atoms for the sound to travel through... -.-
Sound will not travel through a vacuum.
sound can travel through any substance that has the ability to vibrate, so pretty much sound can travel through everything.
light can travel through a vacuum whereas sound cant
sound can travel through metal.
sound can travel through air liquids and solids
Sound wave do not travel through vaccum as it need medium to travel.
sound needs a medium to travel through, it could be air, a gas ,solid,or liquid sound cant travel through a vacum
Both light and sound can indeed travel through glass. These are substances in which light and sound often travel through.
Sound cannot travel through a vacuum, such as in outer space. "Sound" refers to waves of compression which travel through matter. When there is no matter, there can be no such waves, and therefore no sound.
Since sound is a mechanical wave (it needs a substance to travel through) it cannot travel through a vacuum.
sound does not travel through space because sound needs medium to travel..
sound can travel through any medium ,except through vacuum
sound cannot travel through a vacum
Sound cannot travel through vacuum, but unless there is sufficient insulation, sound might travel through the material the tube is made of.
Sound waves travel through matter, whether solid, liquid, or gas. They do not travel through vacuum.
An electrical current - and the energy it carries - can travel through any conductor. Quite often, these conductors will be wires.
Sound does not travel through a slinky. This is just a science experiment to SHOW how soundwaves travel.
No. Since there is nothing sound can travel through, sound cannot travel.
sound can travel through air , water and lots more
yes sound does travel through rocks because of the vibration.
yes., sound can travel through plasma because it is matter.
Yes, sound waves can travel through clouds.
Sound waves will travel through gases, liquids, and solids. Sound waves cannot pass through a vacuum.
Sound can't travel through a vacuum because a vacuum does not contain air, and sound needs air to travel.
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 needs a medium through which to travel. It will not travel in a vacuum.
No, but sound can travel at 4,540 m/s No, sound travels fastest through solids.
there is no air in a vaccum. and sound needs air for the sound waves to travel through.
sound can not travel though space hope this helps
Sound needs a medium to travel. It cannot travel through a vaccum.
If by "land lines" you mean electrical wires, cables, or optical fibers, then sound doesn't travel through these. They're used to carry electric currents or light beams from place to place, which are continuously being changed in pre-arranged ways, to carry information that make it possible to construct a copy of the sound at the receiving end.
nothing A sound wave is a mechanical wave that can travel through any gasses, liquids, or solids. sound waves can not travel in outer space because there is nothing for the wave to travel through. Sound is vibration. Thus, it travels through anything that has mass. While it can travel through the air, the travel time and the clarity get better and better as the object gets denser and denser. Seeing as space has no… Read More
Sound can't really travel through light.
sound can't travel through a vacuum. or a place without air.
Sound will not travel through a vacuum as it needs a medium which will allow vibrations.
Sound needs a matter based medium, so it will not travel through vacuum.
Why is visible light considered to be radiant energy and can travel through empty space but sound waves cannot travel through a vacuum?
Well light is an electromagnetic wave and it pushes itself through space ,but sound requires particles to travel through and if there are no particles for it to travel through you have no sound
Because sound requires a medium to travel through, sound cannot travel through space because space is a vacuum. Therefore a sound produced on the moon could not travel to earth.
Yes, sound can travel through most mediums including solids and liquids. However, it cannot travel through a vacuum.
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
No, sound requires a medium to travel. No it must travel through matter
Yes, sound can travel through a carpet but at lower speed than in air.
Sound can travel through most substances but the loudness depends on the substance.
False sound can travel through solid.
Absolutely. Sound can travel through any medium with some restoring force.
You'd have to say that the speed of sound waves in vacuum is zero, because sound can't travel through vacuum at all. Not even an inch. Sound needs a material substance to travel through.
