Speed of sound in different medium
Sound of Class 8
SPEED OF SOUND IN DIFFERENT MEDIUM
Sound travels with different speed in different media like solid, liquid and gas. This is because, sound travels in a medium due to the transfer of energy from one particle to another particle of the medium.
Since the particles of solid are close to each other, so the transfer of energy from one particle to another takes place in lesser time (i.e. faster). Hence speed of sound in solids is large.
Speed of sounds in liquids is lesser than in solids since the particles are away from each other as compared to solids.
Speed of sound in gases is lesser than the speed in liquids and solids as the particles are far away as compare to solids and liquids.
