Which waves travel through a medium?

Mechanical waves, such as sound waves travel through a medium. They cannot travel through a vacuum.


Why do waves travel through mediums?

Waves need not require medium to travel through. Only Mechanical waves like sound waves require medium to travel through. Electromagnetic waves travel in vaccum like light waves. Some waves transmitted in a medium due to disturbances in the medium .


Can sound waves travel through gas liquid and solids?

Yes, yes, and yes. Sound can travel through any compressible medium. The denser the medium, the faster sound will travel.

Are electromagnetic waves medium waves?

No. Waves that require a medium to travel in are called mechanical waves. Electromagnetic waves are not mechanical waves and do not require a medium.


Does sound travel faster in solids or in liquids?

Sound travels faster in a medium that that has no or less interference. In other words we can say that it will travel faster in solid practically thinking that sound is echoced by the solid objects better than the liquid medium and as a result the sound waves travel with faster velocity and travel greater distance.

Why do light waves travel faster then sound waves?

Electromagnetic waves travel independently of the medium through which they travel -- while transparent matter can impede its passage, no transfer of energy from molecule to molecule is required as with sound waves and other vibrations. The speed of sound is limited by the motion of molecules, which is faster in denser materials.


Do sound waves travel faster in air than in any other medium?

The speed of sound depends on the density of the medium the waves are traveling through. The denser the medium the higher the speed. For example, sound travels faster through water than it does through air.
