What is a pitch (in sound)? It is related to the frequency i.e. if more frequency more pitch and vice versa. so when we talk, if we speak speedily then more frequency but if we speak slowly then low frequency? right or wrong? then how do we know that his voice has high frequency (or pitch) than the other?

Pitch is nothing to do with 'speed of speaking' as you suggest above. It is to do with the number of waves that are 'packed' into the sound - the more waves or cycles per second, the higher the frequency and therefore the higher the pitch. So a higher pitched tuning fork will vibrate faster (and this is where speed does com into it) i.e. there are more vibrations or waves per second. The musical note (middle) 'A' for instance, corresponds to a frequency of 440Hz, or 440 full vibrations per second.

Explanation:
The speed of speaking is not related to frequency though. If you consider someone with a deep voice (low frequency, low pitch), they can be speaking slowly or quickly, but their pitch can be the same. Equally, a person with a high pitch voce (high frequency) can speak slowly, but they will still have a high pitch voice.
Our ear enable us to identify high and low pitch.

In addition to producing images, ultrasound can be used to heat tissues of the body for therapeutic purposes. An emitter is placed against the surface of the skin; the amplitude of the ultrasOund wave at this point is quite large.
When a sound wave hits the boundary between soft tissue and bone, most of the energy is reflected. The boundary acts like the closed end of a tube, which can lead to standing waves. Suppose 0.70 MHz ultrasound is directed through a layer of tissue with a bone 0.55 cm below the surface.
Will standing waves be created?

Two astronauts are 1.5 m apart in their spaceship. One speaks to the other. The conversation is transmitted to earth via electromagnetic waves. The time it takes for sound waves to travel at 343 m/s through the air between the astronauts equals the time it takes for the electromagnetic waves to travel to the earth. How far away from the earth is the spaceship?

For sound waves, the period and the frequency of a pitch are reciprocals of each other: period = s e c o n d s c y c l e and frequency = c y c l e s s e c o n d . Write an equation for each pitch. Let θ = time in seconds.
Use a=1. the lowest pitch heard by elephants: 15 cycles per second.
