Find the number of decibels for the power of the sound. Round to the nearest decibel.
A rock concert, 5.19 10-6 watts/cm2

D= ? db

  • Math -

    Hint: dB = 10 log (I/Io) where

    I = intensity in W/m^2
    Io = Threshold of hearing (use 10^-12 W/m^2)

    Convert 5.19*10^-6 W/cm^2 to W/m^2 and apply the formula.

  • Math -

    step 1 D=log 5.19*10^-6watts/cm2/10^16
    step 2 10log(5.19*10^-6*10^16)
    step 3 (log5.19)=.7151673
    step 4 ^16-^-6=10
    step 5 log10^10=10
    step 6 10(.7151+10)
