Sound Intensity and Distance

This content was STOLEN from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

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.
================================================
Answers:
a) 3.7, 116.3
b) 4.3, 115.7
c) 6.2, 113.8
d) 8.6, 111.4

A body oscillates with simple harmonic motion along the x-axis. Its displacement varies with time according to the equation x=5sin(3.14t + 3.14/3). pi=3.14. The velocity (in m/s) of the body at t=1 second is:
=========================================
a) +8
b) -8
c) -14
d) +14

How Sound Intensity Varies with Distance from the Source

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?
