Sound travels in mechanical waves of energy through different media, such assolids, liquids or gases. Waves cause the molecules of a medium to collide as itpasses through the medium. Because the molecules of a solid are closer togetherthan those of a liquid or gas, the molecules of a solid collide at a faster rate.
