A sound wave with intensity of 80.1 dB is incident on an eardrum of Area = 0.7x10^-4. How much energy is absorbed by the eardrum in 4 minutes??? I know this much..... Power = (Intensity)(Area)..so...P=(80.1)(0.7x10^-4) and Energy = (power)(time) so....E = (80.1)(0.7x10^-4)(240 sec) = 1.35 However, this is not the correct answer. Am i not doing the right conversions or what?? What looks wring here? (the correct answer is 1.72) I know it probably has something to do with converting dB to something....im just not sure how..
