Question

Sound travels faster in water than in air. State whether true or false


A
True
loader
B
False
loader

Solution

The correct option is A True
Sound travels faster in water than it travels in air. Its speed is around 1500 m/s at around 25 $$^0C$$ whereas in air its speed is approximately 350 m/s at 25 $$^0C$$ temperature. This is because the particles of a liquid are much tightly packed than that of gases. So the sound energy gets transferred easily to the next particle.
