Question

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

A
True
B
False

Solution

## The correct option is A TrueSound 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.Physics
