Hint: dB = 10 log (I/Io) where

I = intensity in W/m^2

Io = Threshold of hearing (use 10^-12 W/m^2)

Convert 5.19*10^-6 W/cm^2 to W/m^2 and apply the formula.

step 1 D=log 5.19*10^-6watts/cm2/10^16

step 2 10log(5.19*10^-6*10^16)

step 3 (log5.19)=.7151673

step 4 ^16-^-6=10

step 5 log10^10=10

step 6 10(.7151+10)

Answer 107 dm

hard to explain but that should be your answer
