Problem 15.26

Threshold of Pain. You are investigating the report of a UFO landing in an isolated portion of New Mexico, and you encounter a strange object that is radiating sound waves uniformly in all directions. Assume that the sound comes from a point source and that you can ignore reflections. You are slowly walking toward the source. When you are 7.5 m from it, you measure its intensity to be 0.11 W>m2 . An intensity of 1.0 W>m2 is often used as the threshold of pain. How much closer to the source can you move before the sound intensity reaches this threshold?

If the object is moving in a straight line and the displacement and the force are known, the work done by the force can be calculated as ⃗ ∣ ∣ W = F ⋅s = F s c∣ ∣ ∣ ∣⃗
