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.
All matter. However, sound waves cannot pass through vacuums, such as space.
Anything made up of atoms will allow sound to pass through. You can classify such materials any way you wish.
Light does not travel as a mechanical vibration. It can pass through some mediums, but through a vacuum as well.
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 molten outer core of the Earth.
Secondary waves are transverse or shear waves which are able to pass through solids, but are not able to pass through liquids.
S waves can only pass through solids. They cannot pass through liquids (e.g. water, molten rock).
Electromagnetic weaves can pass through a vacuum.
Sound waves must have a medium to pass through, such as air. Light can pass through a vacuum such as space.
P-waves are faster than s-waves. Both can pass through solid rock, but only p-waves can pass through gases and liquids === ===
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.
When the waves pass through soft soils (sediments) they slow down and amplify.
horizontal waves only
Transverse / shear waves.
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!
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.
yes electromagnetic waves can pass through water
Long answer: Radio waves, like all EM radiation, can pass through a vacuum. Short answer: Yes.
Seismic waves pass through the earth when part of earth's crust breaks.
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.
Transverse waves only travel through solids. These are also known as S waves.
Sure they can. It is the transverse waves (s waves) that can't travel through liquids.
