Light can travel through a vacuum,as is evidenced when you see the sun or the moon.Can sound travel through a vacuum also?


Question asked by: Rosario

Asked on: 29 May 2010

No, sounds cannot travel through a vacuum.

Ths is because sound requires a medium to travel through because it requires the vibration of particles to travel and there need to be particles to vibrate for it to travel through.

Therefore it is totally different to electromagnetic radiation.
