Find the ratios of
a. the intensities,
b. the pressure amplitudes, and
c. the particle displacement amplitudes for two sounds whose sound levels
differ by 37dB.
a. The ratio is
The difference between the two sound levels
In our case
that is the pressure amplitude is proportional to the square root of the
b. The ratio is
c. The ratio of
the displacement amplitudes is equal to the ratio of pressure amplitudes.
c. The ratio is
