# What factors does sound depend on?

## What factors does sound depend on?

What are the factors on which sound depends?

• Density of the medium-the speed of sound is inversely proportional to the density of the medium.
• Humidity of the medium-More humid the air is,greater is the speed of sound.
• Temperature of the medium-The speed of sound is directly prop.

## What are the factors on which pitch of a sound depends explain?

The pitch of a sound depends on the frequency while loudness of a sound depends on the amplitude of sound waves.

On what factors does the loudness or intensity of sound depends?

Loudness of sound depends upon its intensity and sensitivity of the ear. of the amplitude of the sounding body. i.e. if amplitude is greater then sound will be louder. surface area of the sounding body.

What medium does sound travel through slowest?

gases
As a rule sound travels slowest through gases, faster through liquids, and fastest through solids.

### What do you understand by low pitched sound and high pitched sound?

The sound an object makes changes depending on how fast it is vibrating. When an object vibrates quickly, high-pitched sounds are heard. Low-pitched sounds come from things that vibrate more slowly. Humans can hear sounds of different pitches, but there are sounds that they cannot hear.

### What are the two factors on which sound depends?

The density of the material through which sound travels. The nature of the medium through which sound travels.

What determines the loudness of sound?

The loudness of the sound is directly proportional to the square of the amplitude of vibration. Thus, the loudness of a sound depends on the amplitude which determines its loudness and volume. ∴ Loudness of the sound depends on its Amplitude.

What makes a sound higher or lower?

Volume is dependent on how hard the air is pushed through. Sound travels more slowly than light. 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.

#### Why does sound travel slowest in gases?

Sound travels more quickly through solids than through liquids and gases because the molecules of a solid are closer together and, therefore, can transmit the vibrations (energy) faster. Sound travels most slowly through gases because the molecules of a gas are farthest apart.

#### What is a low sound?

Also called infrasound, low-frequency sounds stand for sound waves with a frequency below the lower limit of audibility (which is generally at about 20 Hz). Low-frequency sounds are all sounds measured at about 500 Hz and under.

Which sound wave has the lowest pitch?

Figure 10.2: Pitch and loudness of sound. Sound B has a lower pitch (lower frequency) than Sound A and is softer (smaller amplitude) than Sound C. The frequency of a sound wave is what your ear understands as pitch….10.3 Characteristics of a sound wave (ESADD)

lower frequency (Hz) upper frequency (Hz)
Elephants 5 10 000

Which of the sound depends on what?

The loudness of a sound depends on the amplitude of the wave. The loudness of sound is proportional to the square of the amplitude. The loudness of sound also depends on the sensitivity of the human ear.

## Which is factor on which loudness and softness of sound depends on?

Name the factor on which loudness and softness of sound depends on. The loudness and softness of sound depend on the amplitude of the wave. More the amplitude more is the loudness. The loudness of sound is directly proportional to the square of the amplitude of vibration producing the sound.

## What makes a sound have a high or low pitch?

1 This depends on the frequency of vibration of the waves. 2 If the frequency of vibration is higher, we say that the sound is shrill and has a high pitch. 3 A bird produces high-pitched sound whereas roaring of a lion is a low-pitched sound. 4 The Voice of a woman has a high pitch than that of a man.

What makes a Sound said to be loud?

Loudness of sound. This phenomena of a sound depends on the amplitude of the sound wave. If the amplitude of the sound wave is large, then the sound is said to be loud.

What are the three main characteristics of sound?

The characteristics of sound are as follows: 1 Pitch 2 Loudness 3 Quality
