The Speed of Music

October 20, 2020

By Dr. Lawrence Rocks

The speed of music in air increases with increased humidity. The speed is about 761 MPH, or 1100 feet per second for "auditorium conditions". The speed increases 1.2% from 68 F to 85 F, but it only increases 0.1% as humidity rises from 50% to 70%.
