The intensity of the sound wave from a jet airplane is 9.00 W/m2 at a distance of 4.8 m. At what rate does the jet airplane radiate energy in the form of sound waves? Assume that the sound wave radiates from the airplane equally in all directions.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am having trouble starting this problem.

Would I first start using I/r^2.

where I would equal I = 9.00 W/m2

I'm not sure how I could find r
