A tutorial from the Physics Classroom that clearly explains the nature, properties and behaviour of sound waves and music, with good animations.
The first analytical determination of the speed of sound was given by Isaac Newton in Proposition 49 of Book II of the Principia.
A simple program that allows you to calculate the speed of sound according to temperature humidity and pressure.
A great explainer site about how the speed of sound is calculated and how it changes with temperature and altitude.
A website from the record breaking skydive about the speed of sound
Short page of information on the speed of sound in air and some other gases.
A basic explanation of sound: what it is, how it travels, how you characterise sounds (frequency, wavelegth and intensity) and how they are made.
A site to learn about the speed of sound and test yourself afterwards.
Find out how different materials affect the speed of sound.
Describes the early attempts to break the sound barrier. Includes descriptions, information, including the latest attempts to beat speed records on land, water and in the air.
