  • Music And Noise

Section 1 - Objective

Q1. By reducing the amplitude of a sound wave, its:

  1. Pitch increases
  2. Loudness decreases
  3. Loudness increases
  4. Pitch decreases

Q2. Two sounds A and B are of frequencies f and 2f respectively. Then:

  1. Both sounds are identical
  2. B is grave, A is shrill
  3. B is shrill, A is grave
  4. B is louder than A

Q3. Two sounds of same loudness and same pitch produced by two different instruments differ in their :

  1. Amplitudes
  2. Frequencies
  3. Wave forms
  4. All the above

  4. Velocity

Q8. When sound waves travelling in air enter into the medium of water, the quantity which remains unchanged is:

  1. Wavelength
  2. Velocity
  3. Frequency
  4. None

Section 2 - Subjective

  • Q2. Define the term intensity of a sound wave. State the unit in which it is measured
  • Q3. How is loudness of sound related to the intensity of wave producing it ?
  • Q4. State the factors that determine
    1. The pitch of a note
    2. The loudness of the sound heard
    3. The quality of the note
  • Q5. Name the subjective property of
    1. Sound related to its frequency
    2. Light related to its wavelength
  • Q6. Which characteristic of sound will change if there is a change in its amplitude and waveform
    1. Name one factor which affects the frequency of sound emitted due to vibrations in air column.
    2. Name the unit used for measuring the sound level.
