## Does sound travel faster in water or solid?

Sound waves travel faster and more effectively in liquids than in air and travel even more effectively in solids. This concept is particularly hard to believe since our general experiences lead us to hear reduced or garbled sounds in water or behind a solid door.

## Does sound travel faster in water?

While sound moves at a much faster speed in the water than in air , the distance that sound waves travel is primarily dependent upon ocean temperature and pressure.

## Does sound travel faster in cold?

In terms of temperature, sound waves move faster in warm air and slower in cold air. So as sound moves through the atmosphere, some parts of the wave will be moving faster than the rest.

## What is the speed of sound in ice?

The shear modulus of ice is given as 3.8×109 newtons per square meter. It can be shown that the speed of sound through ice is given by √[(bulk modulus plus 1.333333333 times shear modulus) divided by density] or √[(8.8E9+4×3.8E9/3)÷920] which reduces to 3882.327108 meters per second.

## Where does sound travel fastest?

Sound travels more quickly through solids than through liquids and gases because the molecules of a solid are closer together and, therefore, can transmit the vibrations (energy) faster. Sound travels most slowly through gases because the molecules of a gas are farthest apart.

## What does sound travel the slowest through?

As a rule sound travels slowest through gases, faster through liquids, and fastest through solids.

## Which of the following would sound most likely travel fastest through?

Sound travels fastest through solids, slower through liquids and slowest through gases.

## In which one of the following sound travels fast?

The correct answer is Solid. In solid the speed of sound is maximum. Sound requires a medium to travel, therefore it cannot travel through a vacuum. Of the three phases of matter (gas, liquid, and solid), sound waves travel the slowest through gases.
