Give one example of a high-pitched sound and one example of a low-pitched sound.

An example of a high-pitched sound is a whistle.  An example of a low-pitched sound is thunder.

Explain the relationship between vibration and volume.

Vibration is a series of small, fast movements back and forth or from side to side.  The more vibrations there are, the sound created by the vibrations will become louder, which will make the volume increase.
