In which medium Sound travels Faster?

By Mandeep Kumar|Updated : June 29th, 2022

Sound moves more rapidly in solids because in solids the particles are close to each other and, therefore, can transmit the vibrations faster. Sound is produced by vibrations that move through a medium (solid, liquid, or gas) in all directions.

Answer: Sound travels faster in solid than air, fluid or vacuum.

Sound travels most slowly through gases because the distance between the molecules of a gas is more compared to the molecules distance in solids. This makes the solids denser and the gases least dense. Talking about liquid, the distance between the molecules is shorter than in gases but longer than in solids. 

Sound travels second fast in the liquids. The density of liquids is more than gases but less than solids. 

Summary:

In which medium Sound travels Faster?

In solid medium sound travels faster. It is because the molecules in solids are place close to each other than in liquids and gases.
