A Sound Question

A Sound Question

Does sound travel farther over a cool area like a frozen lake or over a warm area such as a desert?

  • A. It travels farther over a cool area because the sound is refracted toward or along the ground.
  • B. Neither, although sound travels faster in warm air then in cool air, it will travel the same distance in either case.
  • C. Over a warm area. Since the sound travel faster, it has less time to be attenuated or absorbed and will travel farther.
  • D. I saw Julie Andrews in the Sound Of Music. Does that count?
