What the terms pitch and amplitude mean.
Posted by The Bitesize Science Teacher (U14392404) on Monday, 18th February 2013
Pitch is the frequency of a sound. It is the number of waves per second that pass a given point. Amplitude is the maximum height or displacement of a wave from its mean position. For light, it's the brightness and for sound it's the volume.
