Matter transporterScience brain teasers require understanding of the physical or biological world and the laws that govern it.
You received a pair of matter transporters from your nerdy friend. It has a screen that you can put matter in and have it come out the other transporter, using science you cannot understand. Assuming no laws of physics change, can sound and light be transported through it?
HintOne can, one can't.
AnswerSound can, light can't. Sound can because it is really just all the particles in the air bumping into the next ones and creating a domino effect. Some will get pushed through the transporter, thus carrying sound. Light cannot because it is not matter and does not use matter to travel.
