An underwater micriphone is used to record sounds emitted by porpoises. The minimum intensity level the instrument can record is 23.6dB. Assuming a porpoise emits sound at a rate of 0.0359J/s, what is the maximum distance at which the animal will still be recorded? Neglect sound absorption in water and treat the porpoise as a point sound source.
