How fast does sound travel through solids liquids and gases?
approximately 6000 metres per second
Does sound travel better through solids liquids or gases?
Solids are packed together tighter than liquids and gases, hence sound travels fastest in solids. The distances in liquids are shorter than in gases, but longer than in solids. Gases are the slowest because they are the least dense: the molecules in gases are very far apart, compared with solids and liquids.
What type of wave travels faster through a gas than a solid?
What state of matter does sound travel fastest through?
Of the three phases of matter (gas, liquid, and solid), sound waves travel the slowest through gases, faster through liquids, and fastest through solids.
