  1. What do you mean by musical sound?

 

  1. Give examples of noise and musical sound.

 

Answer:

  1. Ears

 

  1. The outer part of the ear is called pinna. It is funnel shaped.

 

  1. A thin and stretched membrane is called ear drum.

 

  1. The vibratory motion is also called oscillatory motion.

 

  1. The number of oscillations in one second is called frequency.

 

  1. The unit of frequency is hertz.

 

  1. A frequency of one hertz is one oscillation per second.

 

  1. Amplitude and frequency.

 

  1. The time taken by a vibrating body to complete one oscillation is called time period.

 

  1. amplitude

 

  1. The characteristic of sound which depends on its frequency is called pitch of a sound.

 

  1. Hearing range of human ears is 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz.

 

  1. Less than 20 Hz and more than 20,000 Hz are inaudible.

 

  1. Higher is the amplitude, louder is the voice.

 

  1. The sound of a baby is feeble due to its small amplitude.

 

  1. The dogs can hear up to 40,000 Hz frequencies while cats can hear up to 70,000 Hz frequencies.

 

  1. The sound having frequency more than 20,000 Hz is called ultrasound.

 

  1. The loud sound which produces unpleasant sensation is called noise.

 

  1. The sound which produces pleasant sensation is called musical sound.

 

  1. The sound in classroom is noise while sound of any musical instrument is musical sound.
