Log functions:

A new car has an interior sound level of 70 dB at 50 km h. A second car, at the
same speed, has an interior sound level that is two times more intense than that
of the new car. Calculate the sound level inside the second car.

  1. NEW CAR:

    10LogN = 70db,
    Divide boh sides by 10:
    LogN = 7,
    N = 10^7.

    2ND CAR:

    N = 2*10^7,
    10Log(2*10^7) = 10*(0.3010+7) = 73db.

    Hello! Can someone please help me out for this question? The loudness, L, of a sound in decibels can be calculated using the formula L= 10 log(I/ F) where I is the intensity of the sound in watts per square metre and F= 10^ -12 .

    The sound level in decibels is typically expressed as β = 10 log (I/I0), but since sound is a pressure wave, the sound level can be expressed in terms of a pressure difference. Intensity depends on the amplitude squared, so the
