what will have a greater effect on the intensity of a sound, doubling its power or halving its distance? Explain your answer.

  • Physical Science -

    Halving the distance will increase the intensity (power per area) by a factor of four.

    Doubling the power while keeping the distance the same will only double the intensity.
