A2 Lead is about the least sonorous metal. At earthquake frequencies, it is used to absorb huge quantities of energy. The lead-rubber bearing, consisting of alternate plates of rubber and steel, and with a core of lead, is nowadays used commonly to isolate buildings and bridges from earthquake effects.
Less known are lead extrusion dampers - like giant bicycle pumps, which pump lead from one end to the other. These rely on the fact that lead re-forms almost instantaneously to its crystal form. Both were invented by a New Zealander, W H Robinson.

to absorb vibrations from railway trains
Both will absorb heat, metal better than wood.
Yes, metal can absorb heat. It also conducts heat and reflects it based on the type of metal and situation.
Metal xylophones use metal or rubber mallets. Wooden xylophones use metal mallets due to there slower vibrations. The metal mallets help increase its vibrations and make it sound as bright crisp as metal xylophones.
yes people absorb sound. anything actually, except for a vacuum, which sound vibrations cannot travel through.
The absorb vibrations, and allow the torque of the engine to be absorbed.
It does because of the vibrations
It is a flexible section of pipe in the exhaust system that helps absorb some of the engine vibrations.
they absorb metal poison
Conduction, which is propagated by atomic vibrations.
The comparison is inadequate; wood contain or can absorb water, a metal no.
A material that something passes through. For example vibrations traveling through a metal rod. The metal rod is the medium.
by the vibrations from the stick thing hitting the metal.
They can conduct electricity if that is what you're asking
Flywheel is an object to balancing the engine force and absorb vibrations and also save energy to continue the further cycle operations
because it has more heat so both of them can absorb heat. Thanks!
Yes, since metal plate or any other types of metals have free electrons they can absorb radiowaves since radiowaves travel through free electrons.
A small bell will not continue to "ring" if held or pressed. This is because the continuing ringing sound is caused by vibrations (resonance) within the metal shell. Once struck, the energized metal will continue to give off sound waves for some time. But the resonance can be dampened if a non-vibratory object (hand, cloth, wood, rubber) comes in contact with the metal : these objects do not vibrate well and will absorb the kinetic energy from the metal.
I'd say a metal bat because wood would absorb more energy than metal.
Low specific heats
