Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Intensity on Friday, January 22, 2010 at 12:53am.

At a distance of 30 m the noise from the engine of an jet has an intensity of 130 dB.

At this level, you will be in pain and your ears will hurt. That's why this intensity is know as the "pain threshold".

How far do you have to be from a jet (total distance), in order for the noise to drop down in intensity to 62.2 dB, a level comparable to that of a spoken conversation?
