Ultrasonic sound waves are to _______ for humans to hear high
An ultrasonic device used by battle ships and regular ships is called ______ sonar
sound travels ______ than light slower
Sound is a form of _______ energy
Sound waves _______ travel through empty space cannot
speech is produced by the vibrations of the _____. vocal cords
The ______ ear includes the hammer, anvil, and stirrup middle
