# What produces lower pitch of sound?

## What produces lower pitch of sound?

The frequency of a sound wave is what your ear understands as pitch. A higher frequency sound has a higher pitch, and a lower frequency sound has a lower pitch….10.3 Characteristics of a sound wave (ESADD)

lower frequency (Hz) upper frequency (Hz)
Dolphins 0,25 200 000
Elephants 5 10 000

## What makes a sound pitch higher or lower?

Sounds are determined by how an object vibrates. Sound waves travel at the same speed, but vibrate in different ways. Some vibrate quickly and have a high frequency or pitch, while others vibrate slowly and give a lower pitch.

What causes the pitch of sound to vary?

Pitch is related to frequency. Changing the number of vibrations per second changes the pitch. The pitch that a particular tuning fork generates depends on the length of its prongs. Shorter prongs produce higher pitch (frequency) sounds than longer prongs.

Which frequency has the lowest sounding pitch?

The lowest pitch corresponds to the lowest frequency giving a sensation of TONE, around 20 to 30 Hz. The highest pitch depends on the highest audible frequency, which varies with age and especially noise exposure, but lies generally in the range of 15 to 20 kHz with younger people.

### What is an example of a low pitch sound?

that it can not be heard by human ears. An example of a low pitch is cello, it’s low pitch is how an orchestra doesn’t get too high pitched. The cello averages the pitch.

### What is the relationship between the frequency and the pitch of a sound?

Explain the relationship between frequency and pitch? The frequency of a sound wave is the number of vibrations that occur per second. The pitch of a sound is a description of how high or low the sound seems to a person. The pitch a person hears depends on the frequency of the sound wave.

How can you increase the pitch of sound?

The faster the sound wave oscillates the higher pitch it will have. For example, on a guitar a big heavy string will vibrate slowly and create a low sound or pitch. A thinner lighter string will vibrate faster and create a high sound or pitch. See musical notes for more on what makes up a musical note.

Does pitch change with distance?

Sound waves that are closer together have a higher frequency, and sound waves that are farther apart have a lower frequency. The frequency of sound waves, in turn, determines the pitch of the sound.

#### Is pitch directly proportional to loudness?

Loudness is the phenomenon of the wave of sound which is dependent on the amplitude of the wave. Loudness is directly proportional to the square of the amplitude. The pitch of the sound is directly proportional to the frequency of the sound.
