The decibel scale intensity for busy traffic is 80 dB. Two people having a loud conversation have a deci bel intensity of 70 dB. What is the approximate combined sound intensity? Answer in units of W / m 2 . 002 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points Two sound sources radiating in phase at a fre quency of 560 Hz interfere such that maxima are heard at angles of 0 ◦ and 20 ◦ from a line perpendicular to that joining the two sources. The velocity of sound is 340 m/s. y L d S 1 S 2 θ listening direction θ δ Assume: L ≫ d Find the separation between the two sources....
