Sound Intensity The Sound INTENSITY is the Power (P) of that sound that passes perpendicularly through a surface dividedby the Area (A) of that surface. P I = A The Intensity of a Point Source emitting 2 spherically uniform is: ; the is 4 the distance from the source where the P Ir r π = intensity of sound is measured.

Decibels The DECIBEL (dB) is a unit used when COMPARING two sound Intensities. The INTENSITY LEVEL (in decibels) is defined by: β 10 0 (10 )log I dB I ⎛⎞ = ⎜⎟ ⎝⎠ 0 where is the Inte I -12 2 nsity of the Reference Level having the value =10 W/m for the human ear.
