Sound travels more slowly through a medium when it is at a low temperature because in a low temperature the molecules move slower and in a high temperature the molecules move faster. For Example: ice that is frozen and boiled water in ice the water doesn't move as fast so the molecules were slower than in the boiled water. HOPE I HELPED YOU!!

Sound travels faster through dense material. This is because molecules in a dense(solid) medium are much closer together than those in a liquid or gas(thin), allowing sound waves to travel more quickly through it.

What temperature does sound travel faster in?

That depends on the nature of the medium through which it is traveling and how that medium's density is affected (if it is affected at all) by its change in temperature. The denser the medium, the faster sound travels through it. For example, in a sealed chamber containing a gas, the speed of sound is not affected by temperature unless it gets cold enough for the gas to condense to a liquid. As long as it remains a gas, changes in temparature only affect its pressure, not its density.


What factors are necessary for a sound wave to travel through a medium?

well sound actually always needs a medium so it can travel, in space there's is no sound because there isn't a medium it can travel through. but just about anything is a medium for sound. air is also a great medium, that's why were able to hear one another

What type of wave can only travel through a medium?

A deshawn wave!


Waves require a medium in order for energy to be transferred. waves can either travel through a medium or through empty space?

E.M. waves require no medium. Sound waves require a medium.

Why does sound move more rapidly -or slowly- through one medium than another?

Generally, the density of the transfer medium and its temperature determines the rate of transfer of sound energy. The more dense the medium and the higher its temperature, the faster sound will travel through it.


When the temperature wave that travel through a medium the molecules of the medium vibrate?

B. at right angles to the direction in which the wave travels


Does sound travel faster through space or room temperature?

Nope, sounds doesn't travel faster on space because a medium is needed a region to another


What material can sound energy travel through slowly?

The more closely packed molecules are in a medium, the faster sound travels through the medium, so sound travels slowest through a gas under low pressure.


Does light have a medium to travel through?

No, apart from "spacetime". But it CAN travel through a medium such as air or glass.


Why does speed of sound depend on the temperature of a medium through which sound waves travel?

Speed of sound increases with the increase in temperature of the medium .In fact the speed of sound is directly proportional to the square root of absolute temp. of the medium.
