This is my first post, so I really hope I'm not in the wrong area. I'm doing a lab is class and I'm confused as to what formula I'm supposed to use.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Problem: Use the tuning forks to test the difference between perceived loudness and actual intensity. Use the formula to calculate intensity based on distance and your own ranking scale to give a number for loudness.

Tuning Fork 320 Hz.

Distance(m) .2 .15 .17 .1

Intensity(1-10) 2 1.6 1.4 1

Thanks in advance.
