The rate at which sound waves travel. This is about the speed of 750 MPH.( 099)

The speed of sound is about 340 m/s or 760 mph at sea level.

The speed at which sound waves travel through a medium (usually air). Since the speed of waves is affected by the density of the medium and the density is affected by the temperature and pressure, the speed of sound through aid varies depending on these (and other) factors. A true measurement must state under what conditions it was measured. The standard reference is 1,130 feet per second at 59-degrees F at sea level (standard barametric pressure). The speed of sound increases with humidity, too.

The speed at which sound waves travel. If you stand a distance away from a friend and say something to him, the sound waves of your voice will travel very quickly to the ear of your friend. The speed of sound is the speed at which those waves traveled.

The speed of sound in still air at 0 degrees Celsius is 331 m/s. It depends on 2 main factors, temperature, and the material. The speed of sound in air can be calculated by taking in to consideration the temperature.

In air, at 72 degrees F (22 degrees C), it is 1131 feet/second, or 345 meters/second. All audio frequencies travel at the same speed. In denser, stiffer materials, sound travels at higher speeds.

The speed of sound waves, about 1130 feet per second in air.

The wave velocity (the time it takes for one point of the waveform to travel a certain distance) of a sound pressure wave, 1130 feet per second at 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

In air it is 1090 feet per second, in water it is 4800 feet per second.

The speed of sound is the speed at which sound moves through air. At sea level and standard atmospheric pressure, the speed of sound is 1116.45 feet per second (340.294 meters per second).

The speed at which a sound wave advances through a medium. It varies widely from one medium to another. At 0o C the velocity of sound in steel is 5000 meters per second, in water at 13Â° C itâ€™s 1441 m/s and in air at 0Â° C the velocity is 1087.8 ft/sec or 331.4 m/s

Sound travels at different speeds in different physical media. For air, the typical speed is 350 m/s (1100 ft/s).

The speed at which sound travels under specified conditions. The speed of sound at sea level in the International Standard Atmosphere is 1,108 feet/second, 658 knots, 1,215 kilometers/hour.

1. (Also velocity of sound.) Usually taken to mean the phase speed of an acoustic (or sound) wave. In an ideal, stationary gas the speed of sound is a thermodynamic property depending only on the equilibrium state of the gas and is given by where Î³ is the ratio of specific heat capacities, at constant pressure and volume, respectively; is the gas constant; and is absolute temperature. 2. In seawater, a function of temperature, salinity, and pressure.

The speed of sound is a term used to describe the speed of sound waves passing through an elastic medium. The speed varies with the medium employed (for example, sound waves move faster through water than through air), as well as with the properties of the medium, especially temperature. The term is commonly used to refer specifically to the speed of sound in air.

"Speed of Sound" is the lead single from Coldplay's 2005 album, X&Y. It made its radio premiere on BBC Radio 1 with Steve Lamacq on the evening of Monday, 18 April 2005. Beginning with a piano riff reminiscent of Coldplay's "Clocks", the song builds into a huge, synth-heavy chorus: "Birds go flying at the speed of sound, to show you how it all began / Birds came flying from the underground, if you could see it then you'd understand."
