Hi everyone, Apologies for what may be a relatively obvious question for you but I'm struggling to understand a concept that was discussed in my introductory Physics class. I would really appreciate any help you could offer. During an explanation of sound, we were told today that a sharp sound tends to be more intense than a low sound. Rather than just assuming so, I'm trying to understand why. If I'm not mistaken, pitch (if a sound is sharp or low) is related to the wavelength (a high pitch and therefore sharp will have a longer frequency than a low pitched, low wavelength sound). Loudness is related to amplitude. I kind of get lost from here trying to draw this link back to why we perceive sharp sounds as being more intense. Am I on the right track or completely left-field? Many thanks in advance!
