DlmLc6kV4AECJIL.jpg%5CSound travels faster in a denser medium than in a rarefied medium.

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.

How does the temperature of a medium effect the speed of sound through that medium?
The speed of sound increases.

As the temperature of a medium increases the rate of speed of sound through the medium what?
The speed of sound through the medium also increases.

Does the speed of sound depend upon medium?
yes the speed of sound depend upon medium

In which medium does sound travel at the greatest speed?
The speed of sound is greatest in the most dense medium.

Why does the speed of sound change if the temperature of the medium change?
Yes it does. The speed of sound depends on speed at which the molecules of the medium are moving and that is affected by the temperature of the medium.

Why is the speed of sound slower then the speed of light?
The sound needs a medium to be transported. Without that medium (vacuum) there is no sound. The sound is blocked by air mulecules. The light does not need a medium.

Can you change the speed of sound?
Yes you can change the speed of sound. IF you change the medium the speed changes. IF you change the density of the medium it changes. IF you change the temperature of the medium the speed changes.

Speed of sound waves?
Speed of sound depends on the density of the medium in which it travels. In air medium, speed of sound wave is approximately 330 m/s.

Why speed of light is greater than speed of sound?
The speed of light is the speed at which electromagnetic waves propagate through a medium. The speed of sound is the speed at which acoustic waves propagate through a medium. As the speed of sound relies on the medium moreso than the speed of light, sound propagates much slower than light.

When the temperature of a medium increases the speed of sound decreases true or false?
No it is not true. When the temperature of the medium increases the speed of sound in that medium increases.

Why is the speed of sound constant despite changing frequencies?
Speed of sound in a medium depends only on the properties on the medium.

How does medium affects the speed of sound?
Medium causes for the speed. It travels high speed in metals.

Explain why the speed of sound changes if the temperature of the medium changes?
The speed of sound depends upon elasticity and inertia of the medium which in turn depend upon the temperature of the medium.That's why speed of sound depends upon the temperature of the medium.

What is the relationship between density of the medium and speed of the sound wave?
When the density of the medium increases, the speed of the sound wave increases.

What is the speed of sound and what does the speed depend upon?
It depends on the medium and the temperature. The warmer and thicker the medium the faster the sound travels.

What is the exact speed of sound?
The speed of sound changes according to the density and compressibility of the medium; there is no 'exact' speed of sound.

How does the medium through which sound is traveling effect the speed of sound?
The speed of sound depends on the density of the medium. IF the density increases the speed increases. So speed of sound through air is less than that through steel rod.

Is it true that the state of medium heps determine the speed of sound passing through the medium?
Yes it is true, the state of a medium helps determine the speed of sound passing through the medium.

How does the medium affect the speed of sound?
actually medium has amain role in the speed of sound, In air the sound can move faster while comparing to any other medium like liquid ,solid

How does the speed of sound change?
The speed of sound is dependant on both the temperature and the properties of the medium through which it is travelling. In general, the higher the temperature, and the more dense the medium, the faster the speed of sound.

What factors affect the speed of sound in a medium?
Temperature, coefficient of restitution, density are some of the factors that affect the speed of sound in a medium.

What is the name of speed of sound?
The speed of sound is a Mach. 1 Mach for a particular medium is the distance that sound would travel through that medium in 1 second.

Is the speed of sound at its maximum in vacuum?
Sound needs a medium to travel. Vacuum is no medium. Therefore there is no sound in vacuum.

What is speed of sound through a solid medium?
It depends on the medium.

In general how does changing the temperature of a medium affect the speed of sound through that medium?
As the temperature of the medium increases, so does the speed of sound. As the temperature decreases the speed of sound decreases (this is true for air, at least). To calculate speed of sound in air: V = 331 + 0.59T where T is the air temperature in degrees C.

According to the table in which medium does sound travel at the fastest speed?
According to the table the medium that sound travels at fastest speed is the electromagnetic waves.

How does changing the temperature of a medium affect the speed sound through that medium?
Speed of sound is directly proportional to the square root of absolute temperature.

Why does the speed of sound depend on air tempersture?
The speed of sound through a medium depends on the density of the medium and the density of air is affected by temperature.

What two characteristics of the medium affect the speed of the sound wave?
The speed of sound and the wavelength

What is the relationship between the speed of sound and its medium?
The denser the medium, the faster the speed of sound through that medium. Sound travels through rock faster than water, through water faster than air.

How does the speed of sound in air compare with the speed of sound in water or steel?
Sound speed is depend on medium. Steel speed has a great speed when compare to the air.

How does the speed of sound in air compare to the speed of sound in other materials?
As a rule the speed of sound increases with increasing density of the medium.

What is relationship between speed of sound and medium through which it passes?
The speed of sound depends, among other factors, eworldtrade on the density of the medium through which it travels.

Compare the speed of light to the speed of sound?
Assuming you mean the speed of sound in air, the speed of light (in a vacuum) is about 800,000 times larger. However, sound has very different speeds, depending on the medium in which it travels. Assuming you mean the speed of sound in air, the speed of light (in a vacuum) is about 800,000 times larger. However, sound has very different speeds, depending on the medium in which it travels. Assuming you mean the speed...

Which is true about speed of sound in air?
Well speed of sound in air at room temperature is 350 m/s . It depends on the density of the medium. Sound cannot propagate through vacuum. Speed of sound is directly proportional to the temperature of the medium.

Why is the speed of sound is too slow of rubber?
It is depends on medium. Sound has a high speed in air.

What does the type of medium have to do with the speed of sound?
Sound travels at different speeds depending on the medium. Sound will travel the fastest through solids.

What is the effect of temperature on speed of sound?
Speed of sound depends on the density of the medium. As temperature increases density decreases due to expansion in the volume. Hence speed of sound gets affected by the change in temperature. Speed of sound is directly proportional to the square root of the temperature of the medium.

What three properties of a medium affect the speed of sound?
The three properties of a medium that affect the speed of sound are elasticity, density, and temperature. Answered by: Nur _ _ _ _ _ _ Izyani

What determines the speed of sound?
In what medium it is transfered.

When sound travels through high density medium what is the effect on its velocity?
The denser the medium the faster the speed of sound.

How fast subsonic speed?
Less than the speed of sound in that medium.

What is the speed of sound in medium air?
The speed of sound in air at 25 degree Celsius is 343m/s.

How does speed of sound contrast with speed of light?
The speed of sound depends a lot on the medium, and you can't talk about the speed of sound in a vacuum. In any case, the speed of light is roughtly a million times as fast as the speed of sound.

What are airplane mach numbers?
Mach refers to the speed of sound. A plane that travels at Mach 2 means that it travels twice the speed of sound in air. The actual speed will vary a bit depending on the altitude. Mach number is a measure of relative speed. It is the speed of something relative to a medium, usually air, and divided by the speed of sound in that medium: : : is the Mach number : is the...

How does a medium effect the speed of sound and light?
the medium will definitely effect the speeds of both speed and sound...check out the following articles from wikipedia for more information. speed of sound website speed of light website

How does the medium effect sound speed?
The density of the medium determines the speed of sound through any given medium. Water is more dense, therefore sounds moves more slowly through it vs. air.

Why is the speed of sound not always the same?
sound travels faster or slower depending on the medium it is moving through and the temperature of the medium :]

A medium can effect speed of sound by changes in what?
When you change density and temperature you effect the way sound travels through a medium.
