Wikipedia: A decibel is one tenth of a bel (B). Devised by engineers of the Bell Telephone Laboratory to quantify the reduction in audio level over a 1 mile length of standard telephone cable, the bel was originally called the transmission unit or TU, but was renamed in 1923 in honor of the Bell System's founder and telecommunications pioneer Alexander Graham Bell. In many situations, however, the bel proved inconveniently large, so the decibel has become more common.
The log of a number a is the power to which you must raise 10 to get the number a.
Intensity I: the power per unit area
Double the distance, intensity reduce by 4, sound level reduced by 6 dBIntensity, radiation and dB
