The Intensity and Loudness of Sound Waves Calculator will calculate the:

- Intensity of sound waves when energy of sound and distance from the source are known.
- Loudness of sound waves when their intensity is known.

The intensity of sound waves when energy of sound and distance from the source are known is W/m^{2} |

The loudness of sound waves when their intensity is known is dB |

Intensity of sound wave calculation |

I = E × v/4π × r^{3}I = × /(4 × ) × ^{3}I = / × I = /I = |

Loudness of sound wave calculation |

L(dB) = 10 × logE × v/4π × r^{3} × I_{0}L(dB) = 10 × log × /(4 × ) × ^{3} × L(dB) = 10 × log / × × L(dB) = 10 × log /L(dB) = 10 × log( )L(dB) = 10 × L(dB) = |

Intensity And Loudness Of Sound Waves Calculator Input Values |

Energy of sound waves (E) J |

Speed of sound wave (v) m/s |

Distance from the source (r) m |

Archimedes constant (π) |
