1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A sound wave has an intensity level of 49 dB. What is the pressure amplitude of this wave? Po= 2x10^-5 2. Relevant equations β=10log(I/I0) I≈P^2 3. The attempt at a solution I can't figure out why I'm getting this problem wrong. So I set it up, 49=10log(I/I0) -> 4.9=log(I/I0) -> 10^4.9=(I/I0) From there, I replaced the intensity for pressure amp (equation 2) -> p=(2*10^-5)√(10^4.9) Pamp=.0056Pa ??
