Question 1

Distinguish between loudness and intensity of sound.


Intensity of a sound wave is not a physical quantity which can be accurately measured. It does not depend upon the sensitivity of the ear. Loudness is not an entirely physical quantity. The loudness of a sound is defined by its amplitude. The amplitude of a sound decides its intensity, which in turn is perceived by the ear as loudness.
