You are standing 7.0 meters from a sound source that radiates equally in all directions, but it is too loud for you. How far away from the source should you stand to experience one third the intensity that you did at 7.0 meters? answer in meters

You have to clarify this: Are you speaking of intensity as in power, or db?

Folks use the term intensity in many ways.

yes i am talking intensity. sorry.
