Textbook Problem

Show that the difference in decibel levels β1 and β2 of a sound source is related to the ratio of its distances r1 and r2 from the receivers by the formula

β 2 β 1 = 20  log ( r 1 r 2 )

To determine
The expression for difference in decibel levels is related to ration of distances.

Explanation

Given Info: the ratio of distance r1 and r2

Formula for sound intensity,

β=10log(II0)

  • I0 is intensity constant,
  • I is the total intensity,

Formula for difference in intensity level,

β2β1=10log(I2I0)10log(I1I0)

Simplify the above expression,

β2β1=10log(I2I0I0I1)=10log(I2I1
