Teaching Sound, Energy, and Change

Sound, Energy, and Change

Sound causes vibrations. These vibrations travel in waves. The sound waves can hit air particles and move them. As air particles bump into each other, the sound energy is transferred, or passed along. Sound waves can also travel through other forms of matter like liquids and solids. As the sound waves move, they transfer energy.
