Finally, the presence or absence of an attenuator or other sensitivity control is not known. 20 for an explanation of VU. 138 0 Ϫ15 Musical instruments The power output of Boulder Dam is said to be approximately 3,160,000,000 W. 16 ϫ 109 ϭ 125 dBm. 5 The Decibel in Acoustics—LP, LW, and LI In acoustics, the ratios encountered most commonly are changes in pressure levels. First, there must be a reference. 00002 N/m2 (20 μN/m2). 00002 N/m2. 0002 dyn . 17) This means that if the pressure is measured in pascals, LP ϭ 20 log xPa .

22) At sea level, atmospheric pressure is equal to 2116 1 b/ft2. Remember the old physics laboratory stunt of partially filling an oil can with water, boiling the water, and then quickly sealing the can and putting it under the cold water faucet to condense the steam so that the atmospheric pressure would crush the can as the steam condensed, leaving a partial vacuum? 00002 ϭ 194 dB. LP ϭ 20 log This represents the complete modulation of atmospheric pressure and would be the largest possible sinusoid.

20: (a) Ohm’s law: the power developed in a resistor is proportional to the square of the voltage. 775 V. With a sinusoidal alternating input (b), the power is a sine-squared function, which can be averaged over one cycle. A DC voltage that delivers the same power has a value that is the square root of the mean of the square of the sinusoidal input to be measured and the reference. The Bel is too large so the decibel (dB) is used in practice. (b) As the dB is defined as a power ratio, voltage ratios have to be squared.
