How much more intense than the threshold of hearing is a sound of 10 dB? 30 dB? 60 dB?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Stp 1 of 4 The scale for measuring intensity is the decibel scale. The threshold of hearing is assigned a sound level of 0 decibels (abbreviated as dB); this sound corresponds to an intensity of 1× 10 12 W/m 2 I We have relation dB= 10 log ( I0) Stp 2 of 4 If dB=10 I 10= 10 log ( 1012) I=10 11 W/m 2...
