  1. Jul 9, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    the sound intensity level at a rock concert is 115 dB, while that at a jazz fest is 95 dB. By what factor does sound intensity increase?


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    115-95= 20

    10log(rock/jazz)=20
    log(rock/jazz)=2

    Rock/Jazz=100
