Explain why sound can not travel in a vacuum Sound is the vibration of molecules since there is absolutely nothing in a vacuum there are no molecules to vibrate
How does the type of matter(solids, liquids, and gasses) affect the volume? The higher the amplitude of the sound wave the louder the sound. The frequency and amplitude are the sound wave is the highest in a solid.
