When two or more waves interact and combine, they interfere with one another. But interference is not necessarily bad: waves may interfere constructively, resulting in a wave larger than the original waves. Or, they may interfere destructively, combining in such a way that they form a wave smaller than the original ones.

If two sound waves are close in frequency,they can combine so that they interfere both constructivly and constructively at regular intervals the intervals depend on the difference between the two frequencies The repeated changes in loudness are called beats.:)

As the pitch of a sound increases the frequency also increses, so the higher the frequency of a sound, the higher its pitch. Jamezboi

In that situation, what happens is that the pitch of sound seems to change as the sound source moves radially with respect to the observer. When the source approaches the observer, the pitch rises, whereas if the source should recede, then the pitch would fall.

Longer wavelengths of sound correspond to lower pitch.

The pitch lowers as the wavelength of the sound increases. It's called the Doppler effect

If the frequency of a sound is increased, the pitch goes higher.

Along with amplitude, being one of the key measurements of sound, the frequency of a sound wave affects the perceived pitch of the sound. As the frequency increases, the pitch becomes higher.

If the source of a sound is moving towards you, then the pitch of the soundyou hear is higher than the pitch of sound that the source is actually emitting.The rate of speed doesn't matter.BTW ... this also happens if you are moving toward the source.

The Wavelength of the Sound Decreases. The most easily recognized effect is that the Pitch of the sound is Higher to the ear.

When sound waves interact they either produce a timbre or a very unpleasant sound with a very high pitch.

The pitch goes higher. Pitch is one of the three major auditory attributes of sounds along with loudness and timbre, and it represents the perceived fundamental frequency of a sound.
