When a light wave passes from one medium to another of greater density, it slows. It will always travel at constant speed through any given medium that is transparent to it, but different media allow it to pass at different speeds.

The wavelength w, decreases with density. Thus velocity = fw is slower when w is smaller.

The denser the medium through which it is traveling the slower a what wave propagates?

Electromagnetic wave, namely, light as it travels through denser medium its speed decreases from its speed when it travels through air or vacuum.


How does the speed of a wave relate to the density of the medium it is traveling through?

The faster the wave, the denser the medium


What is the method by which the wave travels through a medium or vacuum?

Waves disturb or perturb the medium and this propagates the wave.


Do sound waves travel faster in air than in any other medium?

The speed of sound depends on the density of the medium the waves are traveling through. The denser the medium the higher the speed. For example, sound travels faster through water than it does through air.


Does a periodic disturbance of a medium describe a wave?

No. If it happens that the disturbance propagates through the medium, i.e. spreads out from the disturbed point, then the phenomenon that travels away from the disturbance and through the medium describes the wave.


Why does sound travel faster through denser materials?

sound unlike light requires a medium to travel.sound propagates from one place to other by causing molecules to vibrate, as molecules of solid are closest vibration produced is maximum,hence speed is maximum


What is the medium of speed traveling through air?

Air is the medium (if you are talking about something travelling through it).


What is the effect of medium on sound travel?

The thicker and denser the medium, the slower sound will travel through it. The density of the medium matters because the denser the substance is, the more material the sound has to vibrate per inch it travels through the substance. This forces it to slow down.


Why do sound waves travel faster through iron than air?

Iron is denser than air. Waves travel faster through denser medium.


What is a Mechanical waves?

A mechanical wave is a disturbance (an oscillation) that moves through a medium. The source transfers mechanical energy into the medium itself, and the medium propagates the energy of the wave. Examples are sound and an earthquake, and a tsunami.


Is it necessary to have a denser medium for the reflection of light?

no. if the medium is denser, the reflection of light would not do it.


What does a medium to make the slower a transverse wave propagates?

dense
