A loud speaker having a circular opening of diameter 20 cm is emitting sound waves uniformly. The intensity of sound at the opening is 0.2 milli watt/m^2. What is the power radiated by the source?
I solved it in the following way:
Intensity = power/Area
Here Area = (pi)R^2
= 3.14 x 0.01
= 0.0314 m^2
Power = 0.2 x 0.0314 milli watts
= 6.28 x 10^(-6) watts
Is it right?

Amith, No one is responding to this because it is trivial. You are saying:

A/B = x

And then asking:

Does A = Bx?

This is hardly advanced physics.

Power radiated by a sound source

I think what he is saying is:

Does A/B = x ? In other words, does A = bx ??
