What can light travel through that sound cant travel through?

light can travel through a vacuum whereas sound cant



Why does the sound not travel through vacuum?

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


How fast can sound travel through a vacuum?

Sound cannot travel through a vacuum.


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.


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.


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.


Which environment will sound not travel through?

Sound will not travel through a vacuum.


Light can travel to Earth from a distant star but sound cannot Why is this?

Sound can only travel through air or water, not through a vacuum, it works in stronger waves than light.


Why is visible light considered to be radiant energy and can travel through empty space but sound waves cannot travel through a vacuum?

Well light is an electromagnetic wave and it pushes itself through space ,but sound requires particles to travel through and if there are no particles for it to travel through you have no sound



Can sound travel through vacuum tube?

Sound cannot travel through vacuum, but unless there is sufficient insulation, sound might travel through the material the tube is made of.


Sound cannot travel through what?

As sound is a mechanical wave (unlike light, an electromagnetic wave), it requires a medium in which to travel, therefore, it cannot travel through a vacuum.


Can sound travel easily through a vacuum?

sound cannot travel through a vacum


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.


How does light and sound travel through solids liquids gases and a vacuum?

sound waves can only travel through particles as particles vibrate. this is why solids let sound pass easiest as the vibrations are passed on the easiest. in a vacuum there is no sound because there are no particles


How fast do sound waves travel through a vacuum?

You'd have to say that the speed of sound waves in vacuum is zero, becausesound can't travel through vacuum at all. Not even an inch. Sound needs amaterial substance to travel through.


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.


The velocity of sound in vacuum is?

It is told that sound cannot travel trough vacuum. Sound can only travel through medium.


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.


Can sound travel through steel?

sound can travel through any medium ,except through vacuum


Does sound travel in vaccum?

Sound needs a medium through which to travel. It will not travel in a vacuum.


What type of wave can't travel through a vacuum?

Sound waves cannot travel through a vacuum.


Why cant sound travel through a vacuum?

Because sound 'travels' by vibrating nearby air, since there's no air in vacuum, no sound will travel through it.


What can light travel through that sound cannot?

The answer is nothing, also commonly and incorrectly known as a vacuum
