In February 2019, a team of Scientists from Columbia University experimented and published the results of an experiment that showed that sound waves can carry gravitational mass. During the experiment, scientists found that sound waves can generate or create a small gravitational field.
It was evident that sound waves can carry a tiny negative mass, which means that in the presence of a gravitational field, such as that of the Earth, their trajectory will bend upward. Researchers have found that sound waves can generate a small gravitational field,” the study said.
For years, scientists believed that sound waves could carry energy, waves caring mass was not yet established.
However, the scientists found proof that their earlier findings were incorrect, reports Phys.org.
The team of researchers discovered that sound waves traveling through superfluid helium carry a small amount of mass. They established this fact mathematically, but did not measure the mass carried by the sound wave.
They found that phonons (quasiparticles) interlink with the gravitational field in a way that causes them to transfer mass as they move through the substance.
Scientists have proposed various ways to test their discovery in the real world. One such possibility would be to use devices that detect gravitational fields to study earthquakes. Since the earthquake sends sound across the land, the devices could definitely detect “billions of kilograms of mass” carried by the sound.
In 2020, researchers constructed an algorithm to detect earthquake signals that deform gravity, changing the density of rocks or stones for a short time. These waves of gravity send signals at the speed of light, allowing earthquakes to be detected before destruction begins or earthquake actually happens.
Co-founder of string theory Michio Kaku says: “It turns out that under certain conditions, sound waves can actually start to rise rather than fall. And this anomaly seems to be consistent with the laws of physics so that some vibrations, instead of falling down, can actually fall up. ”
Researchers and Historians studying ancient civilizations believe that this study suggests how ancient people were able to move massive stones. It is definitely possible that they might have used sound waves and vibrations to move such huge blocks of stones.
According to ancient advance technology theory, sound was part of the Ancient Civilizations, and people built magnum structures, such as the pyramids in Egypt, using sounds waves of a specific frequency.
Researchers hope that perhaps a time will come, when they will unravel the mystery of sound waves and structure built by ancient people.
