CBSE Class 9 Answered

why infra sound travels through ground but not through air?
Asked by HANNAH BASIL | 20 Jan, 2012, 12:00: AM
Expert Answer
Sound waves, particularly in the atmosphere, whose frequencies of pressure variation and of vibration are below the audible range, that is, lower than about 20 Hz. Earthquake and seismic waves are elastic waves which occur at infrasonic frequencies in the Earth's crust and in the oceans and seas. The physical laws of propagation in the atmosphere are essentially the same as for audible sound. The local speed of infrasound in air at ambient temperatures near 20°C (68°F) is about 340 m/s (1115 ft/s), the same as for audible sound.
