what are the three characteristics of sound
- Loudness- The sensation produced in the ear which enables us to distinguish between a loud and a faint sound is called loudness.
Loudness is determined basically by the amplitude of the wave.
- Pitch- It is that characteristic of sound which helps in differentiating between a shrill and a grave sound.
It depends on the frequency of sound wave.
- Quality or timbre- The characteristic of a sound which distinguishes it from another of the same pitch and loudness is called quality.
It depends on the wave-form of the sound wave.
