- People with good hearing can perceive sounds as low in level as –8.00 dB at a frequency of 3000 Hz. What is the intensity of this sound in watts per meter squared?
- An 8-hour exposure to a sound intensity level of 90.0 dB may cause hearing damage. What energy in joules falls on a 0.800-cm-diameter eardrum so exposed?
- If the warning tag on a lawn mower states that it produces noise at a level of 91.0 dB, what is this in watts per meter squared?
- An electronic point source emits sound isotropically at a frequency of 5000 Hz and a power of 34 watts. A small microphone has an area of 0.79 cm2 and is located 156 meters from the point source. What would be the sound intensity level at the microphone if the point source doubled its power output?
- A sound wave traveling in 20ºC air has a pressure amplitude of 0.5 Pa. What is the intensity of the wave?
