What is the difference between loudness and shrillness?
Loudness is a function of the sound wave 's amplitude of the sound pressure. Aour ear drums are moved by the sound pressure.The greater the amplitude, the greater the volume. Pitch is related to its frequency. The higher the frequency, the higher the pitch. Loudness = amplitude of the sound pressure Softest sound Loudest sound Pitch = frequency Lowest pitch Highest pitch
Shrill refers to a very high pitched noise, the sound wave would thus have a higher frequency. Shrillness mean producing a high, thin, piercing tone/high-pitched sound
