A sound wave has an intensity level of 49 dB. What is the pressure amplitude of this wave?
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)
