This time, we will bridge the gap between physics and mathematics by studying another application of logarithmic functions. We will learn about the dB Scale and explore how this logarithmic scale can be used to compare the loudness of sounds.

Basic concepts: Exponents: Rational exponents,

Related concepts: Derivative of inverse trigonometric functions, Derivative of logarithmic functions,

dB scale (loudness of sounds)

${{I_1}\over{I_2}} = 10 ^ {({{dB_1 - dB_2}\over10})}$

${{I_1}\over{I_2}} = 10 ^ {({{dB_1 - dB_2}\over10})}$

- 1.A piano playing (65dB) is __________ times as loud as a whisper (30dB).
- 2.A whisper (30dB) is __________ times as loud as a piano playing (65db).
