1 Sound Waves Chapter 14 What Is Sound? circle6 Sound is a disturbance that travels though a material medium circle6 Air: Pressure disturbance circle6 Solids: Vibrations of the lattice circle6 v air = (331 + 0.60T C )m/s circle6 Therefore at T = 20 o C we have circle6 v air = 343 m/s = 1125 ft/s = 767 mph Vibrations Make Waves

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
