How do you describe, simply, the energy in a sound wave. If the loudness of sound is the amplitude and the frequency is the pitch then I am assuming, possibly wrongly, it takes more energy to create a louder sound and a higher pitched sound. Or perhaps you can't equate energy to a sound wave like this`

As a sound travels it gets quieter. Is this because the sound has lost energy or it has been absorbed by air/other materials.

Can sound lose pitch as it travels?
