A Trivia Quiz On Waves, Light And Sound! - Quiz

What do you know about waves, light, and sound? Waves are due to vibrating layers or particles of the medium through a vacuum, but sound cannot travel through a vacuum, but sound cannot travel through a vacuum. Vibrations in light waves are perpendicular to the direction along which the light travels, while the particles' vibrations in sound waves are in the same order. Try this quiz and learn more.
