    The answer is; pressure

    The sound is a longitudinal wave meaning the particles vibrate parallel to the direction of the wave. Sound waves, therefore, produce compression (akin to the crest in a transverse wave) and rarefaction regions (akin to a trough in a transverse wave) as its energy is propagated in the medium.
