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.

Solution Summary

The solution provides step-by step explanations and full derivations of the equations.

Sound 1 has an intensity of 380.0 W/m^2. Sound 2 has an intensity level that is 2.5 dB greater than the intensity level of sound 1. What is the intensity of sound 2?

A microphone in the ocean is sensitive to sounds emitted by porpoises. To produce a usable signal, sound waves striking the microphone must have an intensity of 10.7 dB. If porpoises emit sound waves with a power of 0.0491 W, how far can a porpoise be from the microphone and still be heard? Disregard absorption of sound waves by

Residents of Hawaii are warned of the approach of a tsunami by sirens mounted on the top of towers. Suppose a siren produces a sound that has an intensity level of 120 dB at a distance of 2.0 m. Treating the siren as a point source of sound, and ignoring reflections and absorption, find the intensity level heard by an observer

A point source of sound that emits uniformly in all directions is located in the middle of a large, open field. The intensity at Brittany's location directly north of the source is twice that at Phillip's position due east of the source. What is the distance between Brittany and Phillip if Brittany is 10.0 m from the source?

Two loudspeakers emit sound waves along the x-axis. The sound has maximum intensity when the speakers are 20 cm apart. The soundintensity decreases as the distance between the speakers is increased, reaching zero at a separation of 60 cm. What is the wavelength of the sound? The answer is not 20 or 60.

Distance Costs Decibels
The general formula for the number of decibels corresponding to a change in soundintensity to relative to the former intensity is
Part A
Suppose that a sound has initial intensity measured in decibels. This sound now increases in intensi

When a helicopter is hovering 1450 m directly overhead, an observer on the ground
measures a soundintensity I. Assume that sound is radiated uniformly from the helicopter and that ground reflections are negligible. How far must the helicopter fly in a straight line parallel to the ground before the observer measures a sound in

Inverse Square Law of Light - Intensity = Power / Area
The law states that everytime the distance light travels is doubled, the intensity of that light is reduced to 1/4.
Question: Demonstrate the reduction of light intensity with distance beginning with 1D equals 10 feet. What is the light density at 14 feet and at 20 fe

Part 1
"Loudness" is measured in decibels, DB. I = I0 * 10 DB/10 (also typed as I =I0*10^(DB/10)) gives the intensity, I, of sound, where I0 is the intensity of the threshold of sound, or the sound that can barely be perceived.
