Physics- Sound Waves Simulation Quiz

The sound is basically a vibration that travels through the air that can be heard when it gets to the ear. While you were in school, you might have discovered the different sound patterns and how to measure how high or low it is. Do you believe you have a proper understanding of sound waves? Take up the physics test below and refresh your memory.
