Why doesn't sound travel on the Moon?
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. ...
Asked in Physics, Earth Sciences
How far does sound travel through air in 3 seconds?
Depends on the temperature, pressure, and humidity of the air. You can use a figure of roughly 1,030 meters in 3 seconds. ...
Can sound waves travel through wood?
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. ...
Did the sound travel better through the string or through the air Why?
Sound will travel better in string because speed of sound on solids is greater than that in air. As string is a solid so sound will travel faster (or better) in string than in air ...
Asked in Speed of Light, Speed of Sound
Does light wave travel through air at a faster speed than sound?
Yes, light is much faster. Light travels through the air at about 186,000 miles in 1 second, and sound travels through the air at about 1 mile every 5 seconds. ...
How do sound waves travel through the air?
Sound travels through air much in the same way as waves travel through water. Sound must have a medium to travel through and can't travel in a vacuum. The sound vibrates one air molecule which in turn vibrates the next molecule in line, and so on. This happens very fast at around 760 mph in air. ...
