where is the intensity of a barely audible sound (about watts per square meter). An artist in a recording studio turns up the volume of a track so that the sound’s intensity doubles. By how many decibels does the loudness increase?

10–12

EXAMPLE 5

Use properties of logarithms in real life

For a sound with intensity I (in watts per square meter), the loudness L(I) of the sound (in decibels) is given by the function

L(2I) – L(I)
