Main Question or Discussion Point
I don't understand the math of the 10 fold system.Decibels are the measuring unit for sound energy. The absolute threshold for hearing is arbitrarily defined as zero decibels. Every 10 decibels correspond to a ten-fold increase in sound. Thus, normal conversation (60 dB) is 10,000 time louder than a 20 dB whisper.
Could someone go into detail of it for me?
I just don't see how that works.
10 db = 100
20 = 1000
30 = 10000?
i don't understand the system here.
