### When the loudness of a sound and amplitude of a sound increases the amplitude of the sound produced will be?

The loudness of a sound is the same thing as the overall amplitude of a sound. When measuring sound, in general, you have pitch (frequency) and tone (amplitude, the measure of loudness). So, if you increase the amplitude of a sound wave pattern, you increase the overall intensity of the sound (the energy), and that can be measured on the logarithmic scale of decibels, since an unconstrained, undirected sound wave carries its energy outward in all directions, in an increasing volume of air (or other medium).

### What determines the amplitude of a sound?

Usually, people are asking as if there is just "the" amplitude in sound waves in air. The loudness perception of a sound is determined by the amplitude of the sound waves &minus; the higher the amplitude, the louder the sound. Which amplitude of sound (sound amplitude) do you mean? There are: amplitude of particle displacement &xi;, or displacement amplitude amplitude of sound pressure p or pressure amplitude amplitude of sound particle velocity v, or particle velocity amplitude amplitude of pressure gradient &Delta; p, or pressure gradient amplitude. Furthermore, think of the amplitude of the oscillation of a string. The maximum magnitude of the deflection of a wave is called amplitude. Look at link: "What is an amplitude?"

### Amplitude of sound?

The amplitude is related to the loudness of the sound.

### How are the amplitude of sound waves measured?

There is not only "one" amplitude. There is an amplitude of particle displacement &xi;, or displacement amplitude, an amplitude of sound pressure p or pressure amplitude, an amplitude of sound particle velocity v, or particle velocity amplitude, an amplitude of pressure gradient &Delta; p, or pressure gradient amplitude. If the "sound" inceases, the "amplitude" also increases.

### What is an amplitude of a sound?

Amplitude is typically represented as being the "height" of a sound wave. A sound that is louder will have a greater amplitude than a quieter sound.

### What does the amplitude look like for a loud sound?

The amplitude of a sound wave is a measure of its loudness. A loud sound will have a higher amplitude.

### What does amplitude of a sound wave do?

Amplitude is the maximum displacement of a wave. The amplitude determine the loudness of the sound

### What is the difference between amplitude and loudness?

Loudness is a function of the sound wave's amplitude of the sound pressure.Amplitude is the volume of the sound (how loud it is).

### What difference will you hear in a sound if there is increase in the amplitude?

The amplitude of a sound corresponds to its loudness so an increase in amplitude will correspond to a louder sound.

### What is the amplitude of a sound wave a measure of?

The amplitude of a sound wave is the measure of the intensity of the sound, such as loudness.

### What happens if you increase the amplitude of a sound?

As we increase the amplitude then intensity of sound increases. The physical term is intensity. Practically we mean it as loudness. More amplitude then loud sound. If amplitude is less then sound is so soft.

### What is the amplitude of a sound wave interpreted as?

The amplitude of a sound wave is interpreted as volume.

### How amplitude affects sound?

More amplitude means more loudness of the sound.

### How does amplitude relate to sound?

Amplitude relates to sound by being a height of the wave

### If a band is playing loudly will the amplitude of the sound waves be small or large?

The amplitude of the sound waves will be largerbecause the larger the amplitude the louderthe sound.

### What does the amplitude of a sound wave indicate?

Amplitude is the maximum extent of vibration of a body from its mean position. The amplitude of a sound wave indicates the loudness of the sound.

### How does amplitude affect sound and light?

When you increase the amplitude in sound it makes the sound louder. When you increase the amplitude in light it makes the light's intensity brighter.

### What happens to the volume of sound as the amplitude gets larger?

The greater the amplitude of a sound wave the louder the sound.

### Why does sound get louder when amplitude is increased?

Because there is a relationship between the amplitude of a sound wave and loudness of a sound.
