Name and define the characteristic which enables one to distinguish two sounds of same loudness, but of different frequencies, given by the same instrument. - Physics

Short Note

Name and define the characteristic which enables one to distinguish two sounds of same loudness, but of different frequencies, given by the same instrument.

Solution

Sounds of different frequencies but of same loudness and timbre can be distinguished by the property called 'pitch' of sound.

The sensation of a frequency is commonly referred to as the pitch of a sound. A high pitch sound corresponds to a high-frequency sound wave and a low pitch sound corresponds to a low-frequency sound wave.
