Foolscap Quiz:

What organ, located in the inner ear, is responsible for transforming mechanical vibrations into neural impulses? How does it discriminate different pitches?

The Cochlea. Different places on the Basilar Membrane are excited by different frequencies as revealed by the Nobel-prize-winning work of Bekesy.

1′ Lecture:

The objective relative intensity level of sound is quantified as the Sound Intensity Level (SIL) and is measured in deciBel (dB), where

SIL = 10 Log( I / Ithreshold ) .


Physics 1251 unit 2 session 13 sound intensity level and db12

Physics 1251Unit 2 Session 13Sound Intensity Level and dB

80/20The Intensity of a sound wave is the energy radiated per unit time per unit area. [W/m2]

FYI: Time Averaged Intensity < I >

< I > = 0.0012 pmax2

For air, with [ p ] = [Pa] and [ I ] = [W/m2]

< I >= < p‧ udisplacement >

= ½ pmax2/ ρv

80/20The frequency range of detectability for humans is approximately 20 Hz to

20 kHz.

80/20Humans are most sensitive in the frequency range 2 kHz to 5 kHz.

Physics 1251Unit 2 Session 13Sound Intensity Level and dB

80/20The lowest detectable intensity (the threshold of hearing Ithreshold ) is about 1 pW/m 2 or 1x10 -12 W/m 2 .

80/20The intensity at which one experiences pain (the threshold of pain) is about 1 W/m 2 .

Hair Cell (Stereocilium) is a Neuron


Physics 1251 unit 2 session 13 sound intensity level and db17

Physics 1251Unit 2 Session 13Sound Intensity Level and dB

Hair Cell (Stereocilium) is a Neuron

  • Neuron has threshold for simulation

  • Neuron “fires” (is either on or off)

  • Firing Neurons inhibit neighbors

Mathematical Digression ☠ Peligro ☠

☠ Danger ☠ Logarithms Log(N)

☠ Lebensgefahr ☠ ☠ Attention

Logarithm = “ratio arithmetic”

Log (x) = L,such that 10 L = x.

The power of 10 that will produce a number x when 10 is raised to that power is called the Logarithm (on the base 10) of the number.

Physics 1251Unit 2 Session 13Sound Intensity Level and dB

Some Useful Facts about Logarithms:

Log( x ‧ y) = Log (x) + Log (y)

Log( x / y) = Log (x) – Log (y)

Log( x p) = p Log ( x )

Thus, in scientific notation:

Log ( z ‧ 10 n) = Log ( z ) + n

Physics 1251Unit 2 Session 13Sound Intensity Level and dB

80/20Sound Intensity Level:

SIL = 10 Log ( I / I threshold ).

The Sound Intensity Level is 10 times the logarithm of the ratio of the intensity of a sound and the threshold of hearing.

The units of SIL are deciBel or dB.

I = I threshold 10 SIL/10

80/20Just Noticeable Difference (JND) is the limen of difference that elicits 75% correct answers in a Two Alternative Forced-Choice test (2AFC test).


Physics 1251 unit 2 session 13 sound intensity level and db28

Physics 1251Unit 2 Session 13Sound Intensity Level and dB

Why 75%?

In 2 Alternative Forced Choice:

  • 50% correct means random choice

  • 100% means can always tell the difference.

  • Thus, 75% is halfway between random and certainty.

    80/20Just Noticeable Difference (JND) is the limen of difference that elicits 75% in a Two Alternative Forced-Choice test (2AFC test).

    The limen of intensity is a ratio of about 1.26 which corresponds to a SIL difference of 1 dB.

    10 Log( 1.26 ) = 1.0

    Summary:

    • The objective sound level is measuredby SIL in dB.

    • SIL = 10 Log (I /Ithreshold) .

    • 0 dB corresponds to an intensity of 1 pW/m2.

    • The threshold of pain is 120 dB.
