Assume that Young's modulus for silver is 7.75 × 10^{10} N/m^{2} at 20°C. If it has a density of 1.05 × 10^{3} kg/m^{3}, how fast does sound travel through silver?

(2.67 × 10^{3} m/s)

Copper has a density of 9 g/cm^{3} and a bulk modulus of 1.2 × 10^{11} N/m^{2}. What is the speed of a wave through it?
