The sound intensity of 1.2x10-12J/m2s is the threshold of hearing for humans. What is the amplitude of the motion of the air molecules if the speed of sound in the air is 343m/s and the density of air is 1.28kg/m^3? Take the frequency of the air molecules as 1000 Hz

Sound intensities, I, are often compared with the threshold of human hearing, I_0, which is about 10^-12 watts per meter squared. The relative intensity, R, of a sound is given by the equation: R = 10log(I/I_0) i. The intensity of
