Problem 1DQ

When sound travels from air into water, does the frequency of the wave change? The speed? The wavelength? Explain your reasoning.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 1DQ Step 1 of 3 : When atoms or molecules in the given medium are closely or tightly packed, sound waves can transmit with greater speed. In other words, sound travels faster in denser medium than in rarer medium.Hence speed of sound will be faster in case of water than air because water is more denser than air. Therefore, the sound speed changes when it travels for air to water.
