Solution

The differences between the sounds are caused by intensity and the pitch of the sound.Intensity is the amount of energy over an area. The sound appears to be more intense when we hear it in a small room. Whereas Pitch depends on the frequency of a sound. Frequency is the number of wavelengths per unit of time.
