A subjective term for the perceived frequency of a tone, that attribute of auditory sensation in terms of which sounds may be ordered on a scale extending from low to high.
Pitch depends primarily upon the frequency of the sound stimulus, but it also depends upon the sound pressure and waveform of the stimulus. The pitch of a sound may be described by the frequency or frequency level of that simple tone having a specified sound pressure level which is judged by listeners to produce the same pitch.
