    Reading:
    Intensity:
    Intensity of sound is the amount of energy incident per unit area per unit time normal to surface. The unit of intensity is W/m2.
    From a point source the emitted energy will distributed uniformly in all direction and will fall uniformly on a spherical surface with source at center. If a point source emitting power P, then at a distance r from the source the intensity will be

    Solution Summary

    The relation between Intensity and loudness is established and loudness in dB is calculated.
