Question

Select the properties of medium on which speed of sound depends.
  1. Temperature
  2. Density
  3. Elasticity
  4. Colour


Solution

The correct options are
A Temperature
B Density
C Elasticity
Speed of sound depends on the temperature, density and elasticity of medium. Colour of the medium does not affect the speed of sound.
  • Rise in temperature leads to increase in speed of sound and vice-versa.
  • With increase in density of the medium, the speed of the sound decreases and vice-versa.
  • With increase in the elasticity of the medium, the speed of the sound also increases and vice-versa.
