Determine the level of sound (in decibels) for the given sound intensity.
(a) I=10^-3.5 watt per m^2 (jet 4 miles from takeoff)
(b) I=10^-3 watt per m^2 (diesel truck at 25 feet)
(c) I=10^-1.5 watt per m^2 (auto horn at 3 feet)
Problem: Determine the level of sound (in decibels) for the given sound intensity.
