Refraction of sound

Asked by raghavendran7 | 28th Dec, 2009, 12:44: PM

Expert Answer:

Yes, sound does refract.

Because refraction is caused by sound entering the new medium at an angle. Because of the angle, part of the wave enters the new medium first and changes speed. The difference in speeds causes the wave to bend.
