NCERT Question 8 Two children are at opposite ends of an aluminum rod. One strikes the end of the rod with a stone. Find the ratio of times taken by the sound wave in air and in aluminum to reach the second child. Taking Speed of sound in air and aluminum from Table 12.1 NCERT Speed of sound in air = 346 m/s Speed of sound in aluminum = 6420 m/s Sound travels for the same distance in both cases.
