Consider the following statements:
- Speed of sound increases with increase in density of the medium
- Speed of sound increases with increase in temperature of the medium
Which of the above statements is/are correct?
When the elasticity of the medium increases the density decreases and it increases the sound speed. Higher temperatures lower the density of a medium, which puts less resistance on the sound waves.
