ARC 4620 Environmental Technology 2 Lab Session: Acoustics Sep. 9, 2003 SOUND INTENSITY ( I ): w/m 2 Inverse square law : sound intensity is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the source. 2 4 d W I π = 2 1 2 2 2 1 d d I I = Proof of the second formula : 2 1 1 4 d W I = Æ W ….. (1) 2 1 1 4 d I = 2 2 2 4 d W I = Æ W ….. (2) 2 2 2 4 d I = (1) = (2). Thus, we have 2 2 2 2 1 1 4 4 d I d I = Therefore, we finally equate 2 1 2 2 2 1 d d I I = SOUND INTENSITY LEVEL ( L I ) AND DECIBEL (dB) 0 log 10 I I L I = I = intensity, w/m 2 I 0 = 10 -12 w/m 2 , the threshold of hearing SIMPLIFIED DECIBEL ADDITION METHOD 0 – 1 2 – 3 4 – 8 9 or more 3 2 1 0 1
