notes

Sound cannot travel at the same speed in different mediums. The speed of sound in a medium is affected by three things:

  • The density of the medium. For instance, speed of sound is the maximum through solids

  • The temperature of the medium. As the temperature increases, the sound propagates easily.

  • Humidity in the air also affects the travel of sound. As the humidity increases, so does the propagation of sound.
