Logarithims and Exponents

If the amplitude ratio, N in decibels, of an electrical system is given by the formula;-

N=10log(Po [output]/Pi [input])

and the power is given by;-


Show that for matched input and output resistances the output voltage V[output] is related to V[input] by ;-

Vo[output]=Vi [input] 10^(N/20)

If N is increased by 6dB, show that the output voltage is approximately doubled for the same input.
