Define the following related to sound waves: (i) Pitch (ii) Loudness and softness (iii) Intensity (iv) Quality
(i) Pitch -Pitch is the sensation (brain interpretation) of the frequency of an emitted sound.
(ii) Loudness and softness – Loudness or softness of a sound wave is the sensation that depends upon its amplitude.
(iii) Intensity– Intensity of a sound is the sound energy transferred per unit time per unit area placed perpendicular to the direction of the propagation of sound.
