    Sound Intensity of a Whisper

    I tried using 10^-10 as the power emitted (got that from a website) and this is what I did: I= 10^-10/ 4pi*3^2 I= 8.8*10^-13 That was wrong, so I'm really at a loss here.

    Sound Intensity of a Whisper

    Homework Statement What is the sound intensity of a whisper at a distance of 3.0 m, in W/m^2 ? What is the corresponding sound intensity level in dB? Homework Equations I=P/4*pi*r^2 The Attempt at a Solution I tried looking up what the power of a whisper was and I can't find...

    Unit conversion difficulties on simple problem

    oh! The equation I have for work is W=Fx, but all that is given to me is two velocities and a mass. Force is m*a so w=m*a*x. I guess I'm still at a loss here.

    Unit conversion difficulties on simple problem

    I tried that- It gives me an answer of 3.74, but that is wrong. This doesn't really make sense to me.

    Friction and a skier

    ok. The work energy theorem is basically saying that since energy is always conserved, something had to provide energy and its done through work. So in less words it is the relationship between the work done and the change in energy. I think gravity is doing most of the work by pulling the...

    Friction and a skier

    Homework Statement You are a member of an alpine rescue team and must get a box of supplies, with mass 2.20 kg, up an incline of constant slope angle 30.0 degrees so that it reaches a stranded skier who is a vertical distance 2.80 m above the bottom of the incline. There is some friction...

    Locomotive, friction, and speed question

    Honestly, I had no idea what I was doing. I tried looking at how someone solved the same problem with different numbers and just plugged my numbers in but it didn't work.
