Frequency and pitch
Stella talks about frequency, which is a measure of the number of sound vibrations per second. A high frequency is the same as a high pitch or note. Amplitude, which is different from frequency or pitch, is a measure of the loudness or the size of the sound vibrations. A cartoon is used to illustrate the difference between frequency and amplitude.
