Hi I have a question here from a chapter on sound. I'm not sure on how to solve this, so I was wondering if someone here could please give me a hand. Thank You!!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Question: A point source at [tex]A[/tex] emits sound uniformly in all directions. At point [tex]B[/tex], the listener measures the sound intensity to be [tex]50.0dB[/tex]. At point [tex]C[/tex], the sound intensity level is [tex]45.3dB[/tex]. The distance [tex]\overline{BC}[/tex] is [tex]10.0m[/tex]. Calculate the distance [tex]\overline{AB}[/tex].
