Transmission of Sound
Sound travels in waves and can be described by the wavelength and frequency of the waves.
Sound is transmitted more quickly through solids than through liquids and gases because the molecules of a solid are closely packed together. Sound travels most slowly through gases because the molecules of a gas are far apart. Sound cannot travel through a vacuumA vacuum is an area of space containing little or no matter (solids, liquids, and gases). It is a space with nothing in it, not even air. More or space because they need matterScience meaning: Matter is any substance (often a particle) that has mass, and also volume (occupies space). Matter exists in three states, solid, liquid and gas and is made up of... More to travel.
Examples of objects that transmit sound waves are:
i. Paper crumpling.
ii. A ship sending sound waves through water.
iii. A tuning fork producing longitude waves while plucked.
iv. Fireworks popping.
