Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Kyle on Friday, May 4, 2012 at 9:37pm.

A fan at a rock concert is 45.0 m from the stage, and at this point the sound intensity level is 108 dB. Sound is detected when a sound wave causes the tympanic membrane (the eardrum) to vibrate . Typically, the diameter of this membrane is about 8.40 m in humans


I solved for the intensity using Beta = (10 dB) log I/I_0

I got I to be 3.11*10^-5 W/m^2 45m away.

Then I found the energy to be 17.22*10^-11J

The answer wants it in micro joules but I'm not even sure if I've done the problem correctly.
