Problem 29E

What two physics mistakes occur in a science fiction movie that shows a distant explosion in outer space, where you see and hear the explosion at the same time?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 29E Step 1 of 2: For the wave to travel from the outer space, first the wave should be able to travel or propagate through the space which is essentially vacuum(no medium). Since sound waves are mechanical waves, they require material medium to propagate. So we would not be able to hear the explosion.This is the one mistake.

Step 2 of 2
