Boojho saw a cracker burst at night at a distance from his house. He heard the sound of the cracker a little later after seeing the cracker burst. Give
reason for the delay in hearing the sound.
The light travels faster than sound. So, the light from the cracker reaches faster than that of sound of the cracker.
Speed of light in air = 3 x 108 m/s
Speed of sound in air = 330 m/s
