{25.18} How far is the speaker from each observer? The velocity (in m/s) of the body at t=1 second is:

A loudspeaker is placed between 2 observers who are 120m apart, along the line connecting them. If one observer records a sound level of 60.0 dB and the other records a sound level of 90 dB, how far is the speaker from each observer? Hint: use the equation which relates to the difference between the decibel levels to the distance from the source.
