    Shock waves Physics sound

    I am studying from TBR and I'm not sure I understand what the shock wave is. I know that shock waves occur when vobject > vsound but I don't understand what's happening to the pressure why is it increasing and then decreasing? Thanks!

    Why does helium make your voice higher?

    I thought that less dense media made sound travel more slowly, e.g. sound travels slower through water than through a solid. Why, then, would a less dense medium (helium) produce a higher pitch (i.e. faster) sound wave vs. normal air?
