### Which travels faster-radio waves or sound waves?

Radio wave travel faster than sound wave. Radio wave is the same as light wave except at different wavelength. It travel at speed of light (3 x 108 m/s). Sound wave travel at only 330 m/s and probably can go up to 3,300 m/s in solid medium which is far slower than the speed of light.

### How far can radio waves travel through space and still be detectable using our latest technology?

The question is too vague for an answer. It depends on the intensity of the radio wave source.

### How far would a electromagnetic wave travel a day in space?

If there's nothing to stop it, any electromagnetic wave, such as radio or light, covers 25,902,068,370 kilometers (16,094,764,800 miles) in 24 hours.

### How far can a radio wave travel in 5 seconds?

Speed of light 3.0*10^8 m/s times 5 seconds = 15*10^8m

3,000

### How far does a secondary wave travel in 10 minutes?

Secondary waves, also known as S-waves, travel at about 3.7 km/s through the Earth's crust and mantle. In 10 minutes, a secondary wave would travel approximately 22,200 kilometers.

### How far does electricity travel in 7 microseconds?

* It depends on how it is travelling. * * An electromagnetic wave, e.g a radio wave would travel about 7,000 feet * * Electricity travelling down a cable would travel at the speed of light multiplied by the velocity factor of the cable. In an averagely good co-axial cable with a velocity factor of 0.8 electricity would travel approximately 5600 feet in 7 microseconds.
