Answer and Explanation: Light travels much faster than sound, partly because it does not need to travel through a medium.
Light can travel through a vacuum at the rate of
Which travel faster sound or light?
The speed of sound through air is about 340 meters per second. It’s faster through water and it’s even faster through steel. Light will travel through a vacuum at 300 million meters per second. If you have light that’s going through a media, it can travel slower than that.
Do sound waves travel as fast as light waves?
Light travels faster than Sound. Light travels at a constant speed of 299 792 458 meter per second, but the speed of sound is only 343 meter per second.
How fast does a light wave travel?
299,792 kilometers per second
Why does light travel so fast?
A magnetic field cause the attraction between the North and South poles of a magnet. In light, the strength of these fields changes with time and place. Albert Einstein showed that light is the fundemental speed limit in the universe. Nothing with mass can move as fast as light.
