From this, (Square wave / Sine wave is more audible) I now understand that a Square soundwave will be louder than that of a Sine sound wave when played at the same frequency (for example 500 Hz). However, how about a sawtooth sound wave; which order from loudest to quietest is it placed?
I know that the Sine wave is only composed of the fundamental frequency and hence produces the lowest pitch - which is less sensitive to human ears. Square sound waves are composed of infinite odd harmonics, and sawtooth waves are composed of both odd and even harmonics. From experimenting, I have found that square sound waves are louder than sawtooth, which is louder than sine waves. What is the explanation behind this system of order?
Thankyou very much.
