The decibel (dB) is defined as

dB= 10log (P2/P1), where P2 is the power of a particular signal. P1 is

the power of some reference signal. In the case of sounds, the reference signal is a sound level that

is just barely audible.How many dBs does a sound have if its power is 665,000 times that of the

reference sound? Round to the nearest tenth.

A) 134.1 dB

B) 58.2 dB

C) 25.3 dB

D) 10.0 dB
