Expert Answer:

velocity of sound depends on the elastic properties and inertial properties of the medium. This means it depends on modulus of elasticity and density of the material .

In general, solids have the strongest interactions between particles, followed by liquids and then gases. For this reason, longitudinal sound waves travel faster in solids than they do in liquids than they do in gases. Even though the inertial factor may favor gases, the elastic factor has a greater influence on the speed of a wave, thus yielding this general pattern:
