A rocket in a fireworks display explodes high in the air. The sound spreads out uniformly in all directions. The intensity of the sound is 2.89 x 10-6 W/m2 at a distance of 127 m from the explosion. Find the distance (in m) from the source at which the intensity is 1.56 x 10-6 W/m2.



Isn't the intensity inversely prop to the square of distance?

I1/d1^2 = I2/d2^2

Solve for d2

i tried that equation, but it turned out to be incorrect.
can u plz retry to help me out plz.
I appreciate it. Thank You!
