You are trying to overhear a juicy conversation, but from your distance of 16.0 , it sounds like only an average whisper of 20.0 . So you decide to move closer to give the conversation a sound level of 65.0 instead.

How close should you come?

Your school subject is NOT college.

• college -

You need to include the dimensions of the numbers you are quoting. Is the distance in meters? Is the sound level in decibels? Whatever it is, say so.

A 45 dB increase in sound level is a factor of
10^4.5 = 31,620
increase in sound power per area.

Use the inverse square law to see how close you have to get
