Question

Which of the following sound waves shown would move faster in the air medium?

  1. Sound wave I
  2. Sound wave II
  3. Both travel at the same speed
  4. Cannot say

hintHint:

The speed of any waves in the air is the same.

The correct answer is: Both travel at the same speed


    • Air is a vacuum that allows light or sound waves to travel easily through them.
    • The speed of any waves will be the same in the air medium.
    • As it has very less density compared to the solid or liquid medium, the movement of waves is faster.
