Solving For Sound Pressure Level SPL
Sound Pressure Level SPL

Inputs:

sound wave pressure (P)
reference or hearing threshold pressure (Pref)


Conversions:

sound wave pressure (P)
= 0
= 0
newton/meter^2
reference or hearing threshold pressure (Pref)
= 0
= 0
newton/meter^2

Solution:

sound pressure level (SPL)
= NOT CALCULATED

Where
SPL=sound pressure level, decibels (db)
P=sound wave pressure, newtons/meter2
Pref=reference pressure or hearing threshold, newton/meter2
IL=intensity level, decibel (db)
I=sound intensity, watt
I0=reference intensity or least audible sound level, watts
PAV=average power, watt
NPL=noise pollution level, decibel (db)

Notes:
- Usually, I0 is set to 10-12 watts
- Usually, Pref is set to 0.00002 newtons/meter2
