How does water affect the transmission of sound through air?
A. Amplifies the sound
B. Muffles the sound
C. Redirects the sound
D. Has no effect on the sound
Correct Answer: B. Muffles the sound
When sound waves travel through air, they encounter water droplets or mist which causes the sound to be absorbed and scattered. This results in a reduction of the sound’s intensity, making it sound more muffled.
