How are sound and light alike?
Sound and light are VERY Different. They are both waves... But light can travel through a vacuum and sound requires a medium (matter... Ex. air or water) to travel through. Also they are 2 different kinds of waves (Light~ Transverse, and Sound~ Longitudinal) Though there are some similarities. Both are waves. Therefore they have wavelengths, frequencies, amplitudes, and speeds. They both can be measured also.
