Which travels sound or light?

Both light and sound travel. Light travels the fastest.


What can light travel through that sound cant travel through?

light can travel through a vacuum whereas sound cant


Can light travel though a vacuum?

Yes, but sound can not.


What does sound go faster through a vacuum or a solid?

Sound does not travel in a vacuum. It needs a medium in which to travel (unlike light) and so sound cannot travel in a vacuum. However, in a solid sound travels faster than in air.


Why do light waves travel through a vacuum but a sound wave can't?

sound waves are vibrations that travel though air. Light is a spectrum of colours this means that light can go through a vacuum but sound cant Wazzupp Niggaaaa!!!!!


In what media do sounds move fastest?

vacuum answer 2 Sound is a vibration of molecules, and thus cannot travel in a vacuum, where there are no molecules.


Why light travel in vacuum but not sound?

Light requires nothing more than a source for transmission. sound requires a source and a medium to conduct it. In vacuum, there is no conductor for sound.


Can light travel in a vacuum?

Yes. Light waves are electromagnetic waves, which do not require a medium to travel through.Mechanical waves (such as sound) do require a medium to travel through, so sound waves cannot travel through a vacuum.Space is a vacuum. The light from the stars (including our own sun) travel across a great distance in a vacuum to get to us.The accepted speed of light is its speed in a vacuum, which is 299,792,458 m/s.


In which order does sound travel fastest in air space water or rock?

The order is as follows with the fastest first:Rock (fastest)WaterAirSpace (vacuum so sound cannot propagate).


Why does the sound not travel through vacuum?

The sound not travel through vacuum because sound need a medium to travel.


What objects are difficult for sound to travel through?

sound travels the fastest in solids and slower in liquids and even slower in gases and cannot travel in vacuum..so its most difficult for the sound to travel in gases


How is light different from sound?

Sound is the vibration of molecules and atoms. Light is made up of things called "light quanta" or "photons." This means that sound cannot travel through a vacuum (there are obviously no molecules or atoms in a vacuum to transmit sound) but light can.


What are a list of mediums in which sound travels slowest to fastest?

It travels fastest in solids, then liquids, and slowest in gases. It doesn't travel through vacuum.


How do you differentiate light waves from sound waves?

You can see light waves (or particles . . .) but you cannot hear them. sound must travel thru matter , light can travel thru vacuum


Which medium will sound travel fastest vacuum or metal?

Sound requires a medium in which to travel. Sound cannot travel in a vacuum. Sound travels pretty well in a metal, and will diminish in intensity according to how much is dampened in the material. The metal with the highest sound velocity is Beryllium, in which its velocity is almost 13 km/sec.


Can radiation travel in a vacuum?

Yes. Light and electromagnetic radiation (like radio waves) can travel in a vacuum. Sound waves, which require air to travel, cannot.


How fast can sound travel through a vacuum?

Sound cannot travel through a vacuum.


Where can light travel but not sound?

In a vacuum. Light can travel through outer space (Moon to Earth), but sound cannot because sound requires air to transmit the vibrations that we recognize as sounds.


Why light can travel trough vacuum but not sound?

This is because sound works through vibrations in the air so when there's no air, no sound, Light does not need this.


Why can light waves travel in vacuum but sound waves cannot?

Because sound waves are waves in material media, but light waves are not.


Does light require a physical medium in which to travel?

No. Proof: There's no physical medium between the sun and earth. Light waves are different from sound waves, so light waves are able to travel without matter. That's why sound can't travel in space (a vacuum) but light can travel from the sun to earth through the vacuum of space.



Does sound waves travel faster than light waves?

No! because light is the fastest thing on earth.


Light can travel through a vacuum as is evidenced when you see the sun or the moon. Can sound travel through a vacuum also?

No, sounds cannot travel through a vacuum. This is because sound requires a medium to travel through because it requires the vibration of particles to travel and there need to be particles to vibrate for it to travel through.
