NEED HELP ASAP PLEASE!!
A high sound level of 120 dB is regarded as the threshold of pain for the average listener. If the threshold of hearing is 10^−12 watts/m^2, then the intensity of the sound corresponding to 120 dB is
____________ watts/m^2.

    This is a standard formula.

    intensity=10log(power/thresholdhearing)

    So
    I get......
    10log(120/10^-12) = 140.7918125
    But its incorrect :(
