Name an insect which makes high pitched sounds creating almost 1000 sound waves per second?
Was this answer useful?
Thanks for the feedback!
The speed of sound at sea level is 340.29 meters per second.
See if you can phrase that question in the form of a complete sentence.
Answer High frequency sound waves can shatter glass if powerful enough. This happens because the glass vibrates at the same frequency as the sound waves o…n the outer surface of the glass, but at lower frequencies inside the glass. This causes interference in the waveforms moving through the glass, which stress the glass, causing it to break. This is a different effect than when a single sharp sound, such as an explosion, pushes the glass beyond its breaking point.
At sea level in air sound travels approximately 1125 ft/s, however it changes depending on the material in which it travels. For instance, it travels faster in water.
As sound gets higher, sound waves get closer together.
The kind of sound waves that cause the highest sounding pitch would the the really thin and fast moving ones. There is, however a difference between big waves that are thin an…d fast, making a high pitched sound louder. This fact also applies with low, and thick slow moving waves as well. I'm 13 and hope this helped.
High pitch: . baby's scream . piccolo . bird's sound . top guitar string . top piano key . fingernails on a blackboard . squeaky hinge on a cabinet or car door . Low… pitch: . lion's roar . bass drum . bottom piano key . tympani . earthquake .
toothed whales (dolphins etc) that echo-locate and bats thats echo-locate. Mice are pretty high pitched but not as high as the echo-locators.
The pitch a guitar makes is totally dependent on how it is tuned and where it is played. But in standard tuning the lowest pitch of a guitar (Low E) as around 82Hz and the hig…hest pitch (4 octaves above middle C) is 1050Hz. Cosidering the Human hearing range is 20Hz-20,000Hz, the guitar makes relatively low pitch sounds. It makes pretty much both low and high notes some keys are high notes and others are low.
High pitch = high frequency = short waves = comes from something moving fast Low pitch = low frequency = long waves = comes from something moving slower
Pitch is affected by the frequency and wavelength of a sound wave. When the frequency is lower there are not as many waves per second, and the wavelength becomes longer. A low… pitch is made by the low frequency and long wavelength of a sound wave.
Compared to a tuba, it's higher. Compared to a piccolo, it's lower.
Sound is made when air is forced through the vocal chords at the top of the larnyx. The chords sit atop the trachea. When they are constricted, you make a squeeky sound. Whe…n they are relaxed, you make a lower pitch sound. This is done subconscienously.
