Hello, I only have 1 question left to finish my physics homework, and it has to do with sound and intensity. I am having some trouble figuring out how to solve it. Here is the question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); At a distance of 17 km, a 177 Hz horn, assumed to be an isotropic point source, is barely audible. At what distance would it begin to cause pain?.

Your help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
