How does sound travel through the air?
A demonstration of how sound travels through the air or any other medium. Sound is transmitted from a source to the surrounding air particles, which vibrate or collide and pass the sound energy along to our ears. Without any particles to vibrate we wouldn't hear the sound. The presenter demonstrates this with a sound source suspended in a vacuum.
