seismic wave travels faster through solid rock and slower through water, but i dont know why!
Mechanical waves (like seismic waves) will travel faster through a solid than a liquid.
why can s-wave can't travel but p-waves can
Seismic waves travel faster when they travel through the core
a seismic wave traveling through a solid will go slower than traveling through a liquid a seismic wave traveling through a solid will go faster than traveling through a liquid (that is the real answer)
They travel fastest through solid rock.
The velocity of seismic waves is controlled by the density and elastic properties of the material through which they travel. Solids tend to have larger elastic modulii than fluids. As the speed of a seismic wave increases as the elastic modulii increase, this means that they tend to travel faster through solids.
Water has a higher density than rock. -Gordon Crocker
it travles faster in a solid
P-Waves are seismic waves that travel through solid, liquid and gas.
Seismic waves are the earths crust vibrating. there are two types of waves P-waves and S-waves (Primary and Secondary) Primary waves travel faster than s waves and can travel through solid and liquid, S-waves can only travel through solids
Solid, because that kind of wave goes fastest through solids
p waves are seismic waves that travel through solid,liquid,gas.
They travel faster through solids
They travel through solid rock faster than water because, theseismic waves squiggle and since it uses more energy and is slower than primary waves, it stops altogether, unlike the primary waves that only slow down briefly.
sound travels faster through a solid than through air
sound travel faster through soled because of tighter packed particles
The denser the faster. ie: it will travel faster through quartz than sandstone.
yes they can but they travel through air faster
