RE: The Magic of Echolocation

in #science2 years ago

the speed of sound in water is 1531 m/s. This value is more than five times the speed of sound in air at 300 m/s.

I’d like to know the physics behind this. Echolocation. Learned something today for real.
A very interesting read man

Sort:  

That was an interesting question, the molecules in water are more tightly jammed together which makes for an easier transfer of energy as the sound travels. Thank you.

Oh makes a lot of sense then. But how do you explain people who scream under water while drowning but are still not heard easily ?

You know its hard to scream when your lungs are filled or getting filled with water.
