How does sound travel through solids liquids and gases ?





Sound is the propagation of vibrations, which are patterns of moving electric, magnetic, acoustic or any kind of light. The sound waves create a sound barrier or sound reflection to sound waves traveling at normal speed.
Sound can be classified as either convection or radiation. Convection, where sound waves vibrate on surfaces which are adjacent to each other and break up into little particles, as they move along the surface of a liquid, is called sound absorption.
Convection, where sound waves are warmed by molecules and heat is transmitted, is called conduction. As these molecules move around each other, they are transferred to the energy that they have been given and then recombine in molecules of their own so that they can continue to move.
Radiation, where sound waves are absorbed, converted into heat and conduction is exactly what happens with heat. Heat energy is transferred from warm air into a medium like water when the medium has an opposite charge to the heat energy. We are familiar with the conduction of heat through the water to the water under it.
Convection is when one surface of a fluid vibrates so that the vibrating surface moves away from its surroundings. The speed at which this vibration occurs is dependent on the amount of heat the surface gets from the surrounding gas and also the size of the surface being vibrated.
Sound can be collected, recorded, filtered, amplified and modified and we can hear them. They are also moving relatively fast.
Radiation can be separated into visible, ultraviolet, infrared, sound, infrared or radio waves. There are different kinds of radiation.
In the case of sound, infrared radiation is the most common and it's a part of the electromagnetic spectrum that's hard to see. However, if you look at infrared images on the sun, you will see the signature of infrared radiation, which comes from hot atoms and molecules of gas and stars, reflected off the sun.
Visible radiation, which includes the electromagnetic spectrum as well as X-rays, is made up of photons. These photons are known as "visible" white" light, because they come from objects that are made up primarily of visible elements, such as suns and stars, which is why our eyes can see them.
Radio waves are invisible, as are ultraviolet radiation and sound waves, although they can be seen. An optical wave, such as a hologram, is a wave whose amplitude is less than its wavelength, so the wavelength can be measured to determine its amplitude.
Radiation can be detected, but there are other waves that are not known to the human ear. These are called the Interferometric band, where sound waves, or waves with a very low frequency, can interact with one another to produce interference patterns.
Sound waves traveling through solids will usually reflect or absorb into the solid material. While radiation waves traveling through solids will travel through the solid material without absorbing or reflecting, they will bounce off the solid material to reach you and can interact with the solid material to create noise and are often called static.
