  1. pompa says:

    Sound is a form of energy, it starts a molecule to vibrate and that molecule passes most of its energy to an adjoining molecule, eventually this energy diminishes to zero.

  2. disuniformity says:

    Sound is propogated by the vibration of the atoms and molecules in the medium. Because different mediums contain different types of molecules, the sound transmission will be different. Dense material like steel have the fastest rate of transmission. A vacuum cannot transmit sound. When you change media, like going from water to air, the sound gets muffled because of the natural resonance frequency differences of the two media.
