Asked in Musical Instruments
Is the saxophone low pitched or high pitched?
Which ones move faster- high or low sounds?
High pitched sounds move at the same speed as low pitched sounds. The speed of sound is instead determined by such factors as the density of air. Higher density makes sound travel faster. This is because sound is a wave fenomenon that requires the molecules in the air to collide in a wave-like manner, and in air with higher density there are more molecules per volume, and so the collisions happens more often, and the sound-wave can travel faster.
