At Cape Canaveral, on blastoff a rocket produces an intensity level of 160 dB as measured 10 m from the rocket. What would be the intensity level at 100 m away? (Assume no energy is lost due to reflections, etc.) Two sound sources have intensities of and 10-6 W/m2, respectively. Which source is more intense and by how many times more? What is the intensity level of a 23-dB sound after being amplified (a) Ten thousand times, (b) A million times, (c) A billion times? A 1000-Hz tone from a loudspeaker has an intensity level of 100 dB at a distance of 2.5 m. If the speaker is assumed to be a point source, how far from the speaker will the sound have intensity levels (a) Of 60 dB and (b) ...Two identical strings on different cellos are tuned to the 440-Hz A note.
