Sound Waves

 Sounds also are different in how loud and how soft they are.

The more energy the sound wave has the louder the sound seems.

The intensity of a sound is the amount of energy it has. You hear intensity as loudness.

Remember the amplitude, or height of a sound wave is a measure of the amount of energy in the wave. so the greater the intensity of a sound, the greater the amplitude.
