Relationship Between Distance and Intensity of Sound

How is distance and intensity of sound-related?

In this post, we investigate quantitatively the relationship between distance and intensity of sound, as a part of the Prelim Physics course under the module Waves and Thermodynamics and sub-part Sound Waves.

The following two videos go over the relationship between distance and the intensity of sound, including the formula and how it is used to solve related questions.

Part 1: Sound intensity at a distance

 

Part 2: Sound intensity and distance problems
