# Sound Intensity and Distance

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
