I tried getting some help before... but I couldn't figure out the logs- if anyone could help me (especially with the manipulation of the logs) I'd appreciate it. Here's the problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

11) [3.0/4.0] A tornado warning siren on top of a tall pole radiates sound waves uniformly in all directions. At a distance of 15 m the sound intensity of the siren is 0.39 . Neglect any effects from reflection of the sound waves from the ground. a) At what distance from the siren is the intensity 0.19 ? b) What is the total acoustical power output of the siren? c) At what distance is the sound intensity reduced by 15 dB from its level at 15 m?

Now I did get parts A and B:

a) 21.5 m

b) 1100 Watts

Now.. part C I can not get at all, and the help I have had has not made sense to me. Please help. Thanks!
