The level of sound (loudness) is measured in decibels. The threshold of human hearing is 10-12 watts/m2 and is defined as a level of sound of 0 decibels (dB). All other decibel levels are calculated by comparing the sound intensity with the threshold of human hearing. To do this we follow a simple rule: 1 Divide the intensity measured in watts/m2 by the sound intensity of the threshold of human hearing. For example, normal conversation is measured at 10−6 watts/m2. 10 -6 ------------- = 10-6 − (-12) 10 -12 = 106 This means that normal conversation is 1 million times as loud as the threshold of human hearing. 2 Multiply the index by 10. This is the intensity level in decibels. s Intensity level = 10 × 6 = 60 dB pa ge To convert from decibels to find the sound intensity, we reverse the process. For example, the sound level for a quiet library = 40 dB. To find the sound intensity: 1 Divide the number of decibels by 10. 40 ------ = 4 10 2 Use this number as an index for 10 and multiply by the threshold for human hearing. pl e The sound intensity of a quiet library = 104 × 10-12 = 10-8 watts/m2 (a) Copy and complete the following table. Sa m Source Sound level (loudness; dB) Sound intensity (watts/m2) Jet aircraft, 50 m away 100 Threshold of pain 10 Chainsaw, 1 m distance 110 Nightclub, 1 m from speaker 0.01 Busy traffic 80 Vacuum cleaner, 1 m distance 70 Average home Rustling of leaves in the distance 0.000 000 1 10 (b) If a whisper is 20 dB, how many times as loud is normal conversation? (c) If the intensity of a rock concert is 100 watts/m2 and the level of intensity of the threshold of discomfort is 120 dB, what comment could you make comparing these two measures? (d) Which is louder, thunder at a sound level of 110 dB or a loud TV at a sound intensity of 10-4 watts/m2? 2 • Algebra 61 NSM09_SB_02.fm Page 62 Wednesday, July 17, 2013 6:45 AM 2.2 19 (a) Write at least two expressions involving indices and multiplication that, when simplified, equal 36m4n8.
