Do sound waves lose energy more quickly in stiff mediums or in less stiff mediums?

in stiff and not stiff mediums stiff mediums are too strong to let the sound wave molecules pass through, whereas less stiff mediums eventually leave the sound waves to loose energy as they pass through. the atmosphere would have to be just right from mediums, no more, no less.

What type of mediums do sound waves travel trough?

All matter. However, sound waves cannot pass through vacuums, such as space.

What are 3 mediums that sound waves pass through?

Anything made up of atoms will allow sound to pass through. You can classify such materials any way you wish.

How do you know that light is an example of electromagnetic waves rather than mechanical?

Light does not travel as a mechanical vibration. It can pass through some mediums, but through a vacuum as well.

When do waves bend traveling through a medium?

Waves bend when they pass from one medium to another. This phenomenon is called refraction. It occurs due to the differences in molecular density between the two mediums.

Shear waves will not pass through the?

Shear waves will not pass through the molten outer core of the Earth.

Do secondary waves travel through solids but not through liquids?

Secondary waves are transverse or shear waves which are able to pass through solids, but are not able to pass through liquids.

S waves cannot pass through?

S waves can only pass through solids. They cannot pass through liquids (e.g. water, molten rock).

What waves can pass through a vacuum?

Electromagnetic weaves can pass through a vacuum.

How do sound waves travel differently than light waves?

Sound waves must have a medium to pass through, such as air. Light can pass through a vacuum such as space.

What is the difference between P-waves and S-waves?

P-waves are faster than s-waves. Both can pass through solid rock, but only p-waves can pass through gases and liquids === ===

What happens when electromagnetic waves encounters an object?

The waves ALWAYS do one, two, or all threeof these three things:pass through the object,get absorbed by the object,bounce off of the object.

How are seismic waves change as they pass through soft soils?

When the waves pass through soft soils (sediments) they slow down and amplify.

Why speed of sound is different in different mediums?

Sound waves cause vibrations in the medium's atoms travel through it. When the mediums atoms are held closer together (higher density), they can pass the energy from the sound wave to nearby atoms much more easily and much more quickly!

Can mechanical waves pass though a vacuum?

Mechanical waves can't pass through a vacuum. Mechanical waves need something to pass through. Space is generally considered a vacuum, with nothing in it to transmit a mechanical wave.

Does a wireless signal pass through water?

yes electromagnetic waves can pass through water

Can radio waves pass through a vacuum?

Long answer: Radio waves, like all EM radiation, can pass through a vacuum. Short answer: Yes.

When part of earth's crust breaks what waves pass through the earth?

Seismic waves pass through the earth when part of earth's crust breaks.

Can p waves travel through the mantle?

Yes. Compressional waves (P-waves) can travel through solids, liquids, and gases. They can propagate through every layer of earth's interior. In contrast, shear waves (S-waves) can pass through solids but not liquids or gases. As they propagate toward the center of the earth they pass through the crust, refract through the crust-mantle interface, pass through the mantle, but cannot pass through the mantel-outer core interface because the outer core is liquid.

What waves pass only through solids?

Transverse waves only travel through solids. These are also known as S waves.

Why p waves can't pass through liquid?

Sure they can. It is the transverse waves (s waves) that can't travel through liquids.
