Sound is always slower than light. That’s why sometimes we see lightning first and then hear thunder “lag” after. Scientists have agreed that the speed of sound in the normal environment falls between 339 – 343 m/s (ie about 1220 – 1235 km/h). However, this number can completely change depending on the sound transmission environment.
Sound can travel through solids, liquids, and gases, and cannot travel in a vacuum. Theoretically yes. But in reality, each different material has a different ability to transmit sound, with the speed of sound also having many changes.
The speed of sound falls between 339 – 343 m/s.
So if we “visualize”, what will the mobility of sound look like? That’s exactly the experiment that the group of YouTuber Corridor Crew did with a number of substances such as rubber, air, water, steel and diamond, to see how the sound transmitted through these substances would be different.
