How Does The Speed Of Wind Affect Sound Waves Travelling Through It?

How Does The Speed Of Wind Affect Sound Waves Travelling Through It?

Yes, the wind does influence the speed of sound through it. A sound wave travels faster in the direction of the wind and slower against it. Apart from a speed bump or boost, wind also alters the path of sound waves by refraction.
Science gets a bad rep for being boring, difficult and for very smart people (see: nerds). But that doesn't have to be the case. At ScienceABC we believe that if science is communicated simply and made relatable and fun, it can be for everyone. As Micheal Jackson said best, as simple as ABC. So far, we've tackled complex and vast topics like Einstein's Time Dilation, the Immune System, Evolution, Quantum Entanglement, while also asking the questions that nag us at night like Is the science in the movies accurate?, Is it possible to have insects the size of humans?, and Why can I hear a thundering sound in my ear?. So, join us for some simple science with a whole lot of fun thrown in! Subscribe to us for your regular dose of science and don't forget to share our work if you liked it.
