Energy \alpha a^{2} n ^{2} \Rightarrow \frac{a_{B}}{a_{A}} = \frac{n_{A}}{n_{B}} \Rightarrow \frac{a_{B}}{a_{A}} = \frac{8}{1}

[\because energy is same ]

 

Pitch -

The brain interprets frequency primarily in terms of a subjective quantity called pitch. Pitch is related to frequency. Higher is frequency higher is pitch.

- wherein

A pure note of high frequency is interpreted as high - pitched sound and a pure note of low frequency as low pitched sound.
