When would sound travel the fastest?
Asked in Energy
What state of matter does sound energy pass through?
What can't sound waves travel through?
Sound waves cannot travel through a vacuum. They must travel through a medium, such as a gas, liquid, or solid. Sound waves travel the fastest through a solid. Sound waves are made of vibrating material be it a liquid a gas or a solid There is no material in a vacuum so there is nothing to pass the vibration through.
Asked in Genetics
What substance allows heat to pass through it the fastest?
What kinds of matter can sound travel through?
Does sound travel faster through molecules that are far apart?
No. Sound waves travel fastest through mediums that have tighter or more densely packed molecules. Longitudinal waves need a conductor (i.e. molecule) to transmit sound. The closer the molecules are, the faster a sound wave is able to pass from one to another. Therefore, sound travels fastest through solid mediums (densely packed molecules), then liquids (less densely packed), then gases (least densely packed).
Asked in Physics
Would sound travel more quickly through wood air or juice?
Sound travels through air the fastest since air has the least amount of particles(thus having the most space for the sound to travel) in it than wood and juice. The particles of wood are tightly packed together, meaning that there is hardly any space for the sound to pass through. The particles in the juice (and any liquid) roll over each other, thus having some space for sound to pass through.

How do sound waves travel differently than light waves?
Asked in Physics
Can ultrasonic wave pass through 1Cm thick iron plate?
What mediums do sound move through?
Can sound wave pass through in vacuum?
No - sound wave cannot pass through "vacuum". It was Robert Boyle, English scientist who proved in 1960 that sound waves need to pass through a medium to transmit sound. This can be tested as follows: Place a bell inside a chamber and slowly start evacuating air from the chamber. It can be seen that sound of the bell is slowly becoming softer, until there is absolutely no sound.
