Sound waves cannot travel without a medium. Therefore, any big explosions in space cannot be heard. Light waves can travel without a medium.

Yes sound needs a material medium to get traversed


Sound travels through what is called a medium, a medium can be anything made of matter and a vacuum has no medium preventing sound from traveling


anything that cannot move faster than light will fall into a black hole. sound is much slower than light. but sound needs a medium to travel through, as there is no medium in empty space to transmit sound, there will be no sound to fall into the black hole. if there was a medium with sound traveling in it near the black hole, that medium would be what fell in to the black hole carrying the sound with it.


Sound needs a medium to travel. Vacuum is no medium. Therefore there is no sound in vacuum.


Yes. Sound wave is a mechanical wave and needs a medium.


No. Sound needs a medium to propagate.


It Can it needs a medium to travel


The sound needs a medium to be transported. Without that medium (vacuum) there is no sound. The sound is blocked by air mulecules. The light does not need a medium.


Like all waves, sound waves carry energy through a medium without the particles of the medium traveling along.


Sound energy causes the particles in the medium it is traveling through to vibrate. The medium is a solid, liquid or gas.


Sound energy causes the particles in the medium it is traveling through to vibrate. The medium is a solid, liquid or gas.


Because sound is an mechanical wave and all the mechanical waves needs a medium to travel through. sound waves is produced by vibration of particles and it transfers sound to another part.


sound needs a material medium to travel. Sound can travel by compression and rarefactions.attma


The form of energy that needs a medium to travel is known as mechanical energy.For example sound needs a medium to travel,that's why sound can't travel in vacuum,light needs no medium to travel it is non mechanical form of energy.


Sound needs a medium through which to travel. It will not travel in a vacuum.


The speed of sound depends on the density of the medium. IF the density increases the speed increases. So speed of sound through air is less than that through steel rod.


sound needs a medium to travel. moon has no air no winds. hence sound cannnot travel


Sound needs the medium to pass through like air water or other denser medium e.g solid, liquid, gas. Sound waves can't travel through vacuum.


Sound is only produced through vibrations. So if there was no air, there would be no sound. In other words, sound needs a medium to travel through, because it needs something to vibrate. The denser the medium, the faster and farther it travels.


"Sound" is a mechanical wave traveling through a medium. Ultrasound is sound, but its frequency is higher than humans can hear.


Mechanical waves are waves that require a medium in which to travel, i.e., a solid or fluid. As sound needs a medium to travel, sound is a mechanical wave.


Yes, it can. In fact, for sound to move through anything, it has to "enter" it. Sound is mechanical energy, and this mechanical energy is transferred into the medium through which the sound is traveling. The medium itself supports the transfer of the (mechanical) energy of sound.


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.


sound can not be in a vacuum because a vacuum has no air. Sound needs a medium to travel though. :)


well sound actually always needs a medium so it can travel, in space there's is no sound because there isn't a medium it can travel through. but just about anything is a medium for sound. air is also a great medium, that's why were able to hear one another
