Name an insect which makes high pitched sounds creating almost 1000 sound waves per second?

High pitch = high frequency = short waves = comes from something moving fast Low pitch = low frequency = long waves = comes from something moving slower
Shorter wavelengths, higher frequencies makes high pitched sounds. Take a rubber band and cut part of it; hold it between your fingers and stretch it slightly; strum it. Yo…u will hear a low sound. Pull it tighter, and strum it. It moves faster, and the sound is higher. Low frequencies sounds low. Thus the slower movement of the rubber band. Higher frequencies are faster. ^v^v^v^v^v^v^v
High frequency sound waves.
What is the name of the insect that lives in a tree and it makes a high pitched sound three seconds at a time when it is hot out in the summer time?
I think it may be a Cicada. . Cicadas have large wide eyes apart on their head and possess transparent wings. . There about 2500 species around the world. . They live in te…mperate to tropical climates and are the most widely recognized of all insects due to their size and vocals.
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.
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.
That's the frequency of the sound.
High pitch is the answer
Low frequency = low pitch = long waves

High pitch = high frequency = short wave Low pitch = low frequency = long wave
In Sound Waves
As sound gets higher, sound waves get closer together.
