Answer to Question #68834 in Electromagnetism for Chloe
If the power of a source remains constant, by what factor does the intensity of sound change if an observer moves 4 times as far from the source. No units required.
The intensity depends on distance as r^(−2). Hence, if you increase distance in 4 times, the intensity decrease in 4^2 = 16 times.
