math
after passing therough a material t centimeters thick, the intensity I(t) of a light beam is given by I(t) =(4^-ct)Io, where Io is the initial intensity and c is a constant called the absorption factor. Ocean water absorbs light with an absorption factor of c= .0101. at what ...

physics - sound level
The source of a sound wave has a power of 2.50 W. Assume it is a point source. (a) What is the intensity 6.70 m away? I used I = Power / 4*pi*r^2 and found I to be 4.43x10^-9 W/m^2 (b) What is the sound level at that distance? Sound level = 10 dB*log [(Intensity)/(Intensity ...

critical thinking
In 1976 a powerful earthquake hit the city of Tangshan, China. Scientists had failed to predict the earthquake. If people had paid attention to the unusual animal behavior that preceded the earthquake, however, they would have known it was coming. Animals can often sense an ...
