In 1543, Nicolaus Copernicus fomented a revolution whilst he debunked the geocentric view of the universe, proving as an alternative that our planet wasn’t significant to the universe. virtually years later, the revolution he set in movement is sort of whole. simply as earth isn't the middle of items, the lifestyles on it, apparently, isn't really targeted to the planet.

Does sound travel faster at the foot or at the top of a mountain ? The density and elasticity of the air vary in the same proportion hence if the temperature were the same on the top of a mountain that it is at the foot, the velocity of sound would ; be the same, but as 15.
