1000 times louder. Every 10 decibel, the intensity increases by a factor of 10.1000 times louder. Every 10 decibel, the intensity increases by a factor of 10.1000 times louder. Every 10 decibel, the intensity increases by a factor of 10.1000 times louder. Every 10 decibel, the intensity increases by a factor of 10.

Use the definition of decibel. The factor can be calculated as is 10(83-70/10). = 101.3.

A sound that measures 30 decibels is how many times louder than the threshold of hearing? 1000

30 dB louder = 1,000 times as much power.

The sound of a normal conversation is 60dB (decibels) and a close range jet is 140dB. This makes a jet at close range over 2 times as many decibels than a close range jet. The sound of a normal conversation is 60dB (decibels) and a close range jet is 140dB. This makes a jet at close range over 2 times as many decibels than a normal conversation. The above answer is FALSE: The decibel scale is logarithmic and thus a 140 dB sound would be 10^14 above 0 decibel; the 60 dB sound would be 10^6 above 0 decibel. Thus the close range jet is around 10^(14 - 6) = 10^8, or 100,000,000 times the loudness of a normal conversation.

50dB - 20dB = 30 dB = 1,000 times as much power

A heartbeat has been measured at 1 decibel, the measurement of sound. 1 decibel is the lowest range of sound. This is also the quietest sound that can heard by a human being.

D. 1000

40 dB gain change should give about the ratio of 16 for sensed volume and loudness, 40 dB gain change gives the ratio of 100 for measured voltage and sound pressure and 40 dB gain change gives the ratio of 1000 for calculated sound power and acoustic intensity. Go to the link: Subjectively perceived loudness (volume), objectively measured sound pressure (voltage), and theoretically calculated sound intensity (acoustic power).

8 times louder

It depends on how close at the car you measure the sound with a sound pressure level meter.

80dB is 40dB more power than 40dB.40dB more power = 104 = 10,000 times more
