Pitch may refer to:

Acoustic frequency[edit]

Angle measurement[edit]

  • one of the angular degrees of freedom (mechanics)
  • Pitch or grade (slope), the steepness of a slope or an object confirming to a slope
  • Pitch (aviation), along with roll and yaw, an aspect of aircraft flight dynamics
  • Pitch, or rake, in geology, the angle between a line and the strike of the plane on which it was found
  • Roof pitch relates to the slope and inclination angle

Linear measurement[edit]

"Pitch" is widely used to describe the distance between repeated elements in a structure possessing translational symmetry:

The reciprocal of pitch (the linear measurement) is spatial frequency, measured in cycles per metre or other units of equivalent physical dimensionality.
