1.) The average sound intensity inside a busy neighborhood restaurant is 3.*10^-5 W/M^2. How much energy goes into each ear (area = 2.1 * 10^-2 m^2) during a one hour meal?
2.) A member of an aircraft maintenance crew wears protective earplugs that reduce the sound intensity by a factor of 350. When a jet aircraft is taking off, the sound intensity level experienced by the crew member is 88 dB. What sound intensity level would the crew member experience if he removed the protective earplugs.
STEPs please. thanks
