Question 10:Why does the speed of sound wave in gas changes with temperature?


This means increasing the temperature of the gas increases the speed of sound.
Theoretically, when we increase the temperature of the gas the molecules move with high speed. Transportation of energy from one point to another increases and the wave travel with greater speed.
It is experimentally found that speed of sound increases 0.6 m/s for each degree rise in the temperature.
