Question

Consider iron and water. In which of the given media does the sound travel faster?___


Solution

In common everyday speech, the speed of sound refers to the speed of sound waves in air. However, the speed of sound varies from substance to substance: sound travels most slowly in gases; it travels faster in liquids; and faster still in solids.The speed of sound is faster in iron because it is a solid (denser) medium in comparison to water.
