Two waves of the same pitch have amplitudes in the ratio 1: 3 What will be the ratio of their (i) loudness, (ii) pitch? - Physics

Short Note

Two waves of the same pitch have amplitudes in the ratio 1: 3 What will be the ratio of their (i) loudness, (ii) pitch?

Solution

(i) Loudness ∝ (amplitude)2

Loudness is proportional to amplitude square Ratio of loudness  =`"L"_1/"L"_2 =((a_1)^2)/((a_2)^2)=(1)^2/(3)^2=1\/9=1:9`

 

(ii) Frequency of the sound wave has no effect on amplitude.
so, frequency remains the same if the pitch is unchanged. 

∴`"Pitch of first wave"/"Pitch of second wave"`=`1/1`=1 :1.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
