Problem 15CQ

Suppose you read that 210-dB ultrasound is being used to pulverize cancerous tumors. You calculate the intensity in watts per centimeter squared and find it is unreasonably high ( 105 W/cm2 ). What is a possible explanation?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 15CQ

Ultrasound can be used medically at different intensities. Lower intensities do not cause damage and are used for medical imaging. Higher intensities can pulverize and destroy targeted substances in the body, such as tumors

Intensity level = 210 dB

Intensity I in w/= ?

We know that   =

= w/  [Audible sound]

= = log

I = w/
