(a) What is the intensity in watts per meter squared of a just barely audible ZUD—Hz sound? (b) What is the intensity in watts per meter squared of a barely audible 4000—Hz sound?

To determine

(a)

What is the intensity in watts per meter squared of a just barely audible 200-Hz sound?

College Physics, Chapter 17, Problem 67PE

Explanation of Solution

Given info:

  f=200Hz

Formula used:

Sound intensity level in units of decibels (dB) is

β(dB)=10log10(II0),I0=1012W/m2 is the threshold intensity of hearing.

Calculation:

From graph for 200Hz and 0 phon,

Sound level = 23 dB

Substituting,

23=10log10(I 10

To determine

(b)

What is the intensity in watts per meter squared of a barely audible 4000-Hz sound?
