What part of a wave determines the pitch of sound?
The "pitch" of the sound is determined by its frequency. (It would be much more elegant to call that a "characteristic" or a "property" of the sound, not a "part" of it.) ...
Asked in Science, Sound Waves
What characteristics of a sound wave determine the loudness and pitch that we perceive?
We perceive the loudness of a sound wave as a consequence of its amplitude. The frequency of a sound wave determines the pitch we perceive. ...
Is it the speed or the size of the vibration that changes the pitch of a sound?
Neither. Speed of sound waves doesn't change unless there is a change in the medium (substance through which the wave moves). the size of the vibration determines how loud the sound is. the length of the vibration is what determines the pitch. ...

Which part of the ear determines the pitch of a sound?
The pitch of a sound is determined long before it reaches a person's ear, and for that matter, even if it never impinges on a single ear. ...
