The sound of a vacuum cleaner has an intensity at the position of the ear of the person using the cleaner of 17.5 µW/m2. What is the loudness of the sound?
Would an increase in the velocity of a sound wave increase or decrease the intensity of the sound wave?
Would an increase in the pressure at a point in the medium that the sound wave moves through increase or decrease the intensity of the sound wave?
The intensity of a sound wave is the average power in the wave per unit area that the wave is incident on. Which of the following is the base SI unit that corresponds to the ratio of power to area?
