at certain point the intensity of the wave is 5mw/cm. How intense would it be at a distance twice as far away. and find the dB level of the waves loudness according to the first.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For the intensity since it is twice as far away i found out that it is 1/4 as intense so i got an intensity of 1.25mw/cm.

For dB I used the 10log*I2/I1, and got -6.02, or 6.02 depending on how you look at it. Do these answers sound right?? thanx
