How do sound waves travel between a boat and a submarine in sonar technology?

A. Because of water particles.
B. Because of water waves.
C. Because of water ripples.
D. Because of water currents.

Is it A?

  • Science -

    Someone else said that it wasn't B.

  • Science -

    the movement of the sound energy is in waves in the water.

  • Science -

    Ok, I'm really confused. Sometime ago, PSYDag said that B wouldn't apply if the water was quiet.

  • Science -

    I am thinking DAG was thinking of waves on the surface, like surfing. Sound waves are not like that, they are pressure waves underwater.

  • Science -

    To be honest, the teacher here did not give good choices. A good choice has no ambiguity.
