As sound is a mechanical wave (unlike light, an electromagnetic wave), it requires a medium in which to travel, therefore, it cannot travel through a vacuum.

Can Sound waves can travel in a vacuum?

No. Since there is nothing sound can travel through, sound cannot travel.


What can sound not travel through?

Since sound is a mechanical wave (it needs a substance to travel through) it cannot travel through a vacuum.


Why can't sound travel easily through some materials?

Sound needs a medium to travel. It cannot travel through a vaccum.


What materials will sound travel through?

Sound waves will travel through gases, liquids, and solids. Sound waves cannot pass through a vacuum.


What can't sound travel through and why?

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.


Can sound travel through vacuum tube?

Sound cannot travel through vacuum, but unless there is sufficient insulation, sound might travel through the material the tube is made of.


Which do not travel through empty space?

sound cannot travel through empty space.


Which of these can sound not travel through?

Sound cannot travel through vacuum. It needs a medium, such as air, water, earth, etc.


Is a sound travel ina vacue?

No, sound cannot travel in a vacuum. Sound moves by vibrating particles of a solid, liquid, or a gas. Since there are no particles in a vacuum, sound cannot travel through it.


Can you hear sombody scream in space?

No there is no Air in space therefore sound cannot travel. Sound cannot travel through a vacum.


Can sound travel through solids and liquids?

Yes, sound can travel through most mediums including solids and liquids. However, it cannot travel through a vacuum.


What types of materials can sound not travel through?

Sound needs a medium in order to travel. Thus, it cannot travel through vacuums, like space.


What are three materials through which sound can travel?

The mechanical vibrations that can be interpreted as sound are able to travel through all forms of matter: gases, liquids, solids, and plasmas. The matter that supports the sound is called the medium. Sound cannot travel through vacuum.


What can sound not travel in?

Sound cannot travel through nothing. There must be something in order to support its propagation.


The velocity of sound in vacuum is?

It is told that sound cannot travel trough vacuum. Sound can only travel through medium.


What is it that cannot sound travel through?

Sound can travel through any medium. If you remove the medium you would end up with a vacuum. It is in vacuums that sound cannot travel as it needs a medium to travel (it travels as a compression wave or shear wave). Space is almost a perfect vacuum so sound is unable to travel through space.


Do sound waves travel in vacuum?

Soundwave cannot travel through a vacumm.


Which waves travel through a medium?

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


Where can sounds not travel?

Sound cannot travel in a vacuum. Sound is mechanical energy, and it travels by the transfer of mechanical energy through the medium through which it is traveling. If there is nothing to transfer the mechanical energy, like there is nothing in a vacuum, sound cannot travel there.


What type of wave can't travel through space?
