Intensity Intensity is the amount of energy hitting a certain area in a certain time Intensity is proportional to the square of the pressure amplitude If we double the amplitude , then we quadruple the intensity I = 0.01 W/m 2 I = 0.04 W/m 2

CQ 6.1 I’ve measured the intensity of sound waves from two sources, A = 1 W/m 2 and B = 9 W/m 2 The amplitude of the sound wave from source B is: a) 3 times larger than that from source A b) 8 times larger than that from source A c) 2 times larger than that from source A

• The intensity of source B is 9 times larger than that of source A • Intensity is proportional to the square of the amplitude, so the amplitude of B is 3 times larger
