Default Ultimate Sound Pressure Level Decibel Table

THIS IS ALL FROM another website.

I AM JUST RETOASTING THIS HERE
enjoy!

Ultimate Sound Pressure Level Decibel Table , COPYWRITE WILLIAM HAMBY 2004

Decibel’s ( db ) are units of ratio’s and in this table are expressed in atmospheric decibels and in this table are REPRESENTATIVE OF THE OBJECT (N), and not neccesarily what the listener or sound level meter experiences (P).

(N) = NORMALIZED TOTAL AIR POWER ENERGY LEVEL SOUND PLUS ANY WIND, WATTS OR JOULES PER SECOND.THESE LEVELS HAVE BEEN CONVERTED

(P) = ACTUAL PEAK PRESSURE METER READINGS i.e. A FORCE PER UNIT AREA

(NP) = NORMALIZED PRESSURE USED IN EXPLOSIVE MEASUREMENTS, BLAST WIND IS NOT INCLUDED

(Q) = BLAST WIND DYNAMIC PRESSURE CREATED BY THE PEAK SHOCK FRONT OVERPRESSURE (P)

REF. = REFERENCE NUMBER OF DATA SOURCE AND YEAR IN APPENDIX BELOW

DECIBEL LEVEL (N = NORMALIZED)( P = ACTUAL PRESSURE) (NP = BOMB PRESSURE) CAUSE OR EFFECT

320 (N)VOLCANO ERUPTION, TAMBORA INDONESIA,1815, EJECTED 36 CUBIC MILES.APPROXIMATELY EQUAL TO
14,000 MEGATON NUCLEAR BOMBS OR A 14 GIGATON BOMB BASED ON EJECTED VOLUME,CHANGE IN MEGATONS TIMES 1.345 EQUALS VOLUME EJECTED CHANGE.IF WAS A NUCLEAR BOMB IT WOULD CREATE A CRATER ABOUT 12.4 MILES WIDE AND 1.33 MILES DEEP.INTERNAL PRESSURE IS BELIEVED TO BE ABOUT 47 MILLION P.S.I. = 347 DB (P) -REF.1.3.

Specifics are included for actual calculations at original website IE: WHAT IS A DB??::
a Decible is:

As a PRESSURE force:
P = PRESSURE OR SHOCK OVERPRESSURE
0 db = 2 * 10 E-5 n / m * E +2 = 0.00002 newtons per square meter = 6.76 * 10 E-6 ounces /square foot
6 db = 2 times the pressure
DB CHANGE = 20 * LOGBASE10 (PRESSURE CHANGE)

-----------------------------


As an SPEAKER IN A AIR TIGHT SEALED BOX (ref.1.):

db(H) = HYDRAULIC, HYDRODYNAMIC OR STATIC PRESSURE i.e. CLOSED OR SEALED BOX WHERE THE PRESSURE IS ESSENTIALLY UNIFORM INSIDE THE BOX OR CHAMBER, I.E. INSIDE THE BOX

ADIABATIC IS WHEN THE COMPRESSION IS FAST LIKE SOUND WHICH IS USUALLY AT LEAST 1 HERTZ, i.e. IT IS SO FAST ESSENTIALLLY NO HEAT IS ALLOWED TO ESCAPE OR TRANSFER

ADIABATIC ISENTROPIC EXPONENT IS 1.4 FOR NORMAL AIR WHICH IS RESPONCIBLE FOR THE "WIERD" 28.0 LOG INSTEAD OF THE USUAL 20 LOG, I.E. 20 * 1.4 = 28.0

CHANGE IN DB(H)= -28 LOGBASE10 (CHANGE IN VOLUME BOX).i.e. +8.43DB PER HALFING
CHANGE IN DB(H)= 28 LOGBASE10 (FREQ. HIGH / FREQ. LOW) .i.e. +8.43DB PER HALFING
CHANGE IN DB = 20 LOGBASE10 (CHANGE IN ELECTRICAL AMPERAGE)
CHANGE IN DB = 10 LOGBASE10 (CHANGE IN ELECTRIC POWER INPUT)
(H) PRESSURE INSIDE BOX = (101325 NEWTONS/SQUARE METER) *
((VOLUME START-VOLUME FINISH/VOLUME FINISH))TO THE POWER OF 1.4
DB = 20 LOGBASE10 (PRESSURE / 0.00002)


120.05 DB(P) = 1 ACOUSTIC WATT PER SQUARE METER, OUTSIDE BOX
132.4 DB(H) = 1 ACOUSTIC WATT INSIDE BOX, ONLY BASS BELOW CRITICAL FREQUENCY OR VOLUME
146.1 DB = 404 WATTS/meter square = 404 NEWTONS/meter square
146.1 DB = 1 METER/SECOND AIR PARTICLE OR SPEAKER CONE VELOCITY = U = 1 METER/SECOND
U = 2 * (PI) * (F) * (AMPLITUDE) = (PRESSURE = newton per meters)/(1.18 * C)
BL WOOFER = NEWTONS / AMPERES OR TESLA METERS I.E. UNIT FORCE PER UNIT ELECTRIC CURRENT
BL(MAX)= SQUARE ROOT (1/ AREA FACE) * SQUARE ROOT (OHMS)* 14.21 NEWTONS / AMPERE
N(EFFICIENTCY)= ((BL WOOFER/BL MAX))SQUARED. ABSOLUTE MAX. AT OR BELOW RES. F. LIKE D.C.
N * WATTS ELECTRICAL = WATTS ACOUSTIC
N = 1.0000 IS JUST THE AIR FORCE ONLY, THE SPEAKER ITSELF HAS ESSENTIALLY "DISAPPEARED"
AMPLITUDE=SQUARE ROOT ((ELECTRIC WATTS*N/AIR DENSITY*C*AREA*4*PI*PI*F*F))
AIR DENSITY = 1.18 KILOGRAMS PER CUBIC METER
C = SPEED OF SOUND = 343 METERS PER SECOND
PI = 3.1415926
F = FREQUENCY
V = CRITICAL VOLUME
FC = CRITICAL FREQUENCY

----------------------------

also some useful info:

so, many loud sounds like gun fire or explosives the peak sound level has an extremely short duration usually 1 millionth to 1 hundredth of a second, so to a human being it may not seem as loud as it actually is, some advanced sound meters have a setting to alter the sound to an automatic duration of 1 second regardless of how short the actual duration was, so for a rough example 160db for 1 hundreth of a second is like 140 db for 1 second, this is also known as the "crest factor", here it is about 10, or the db peak minus the average divided by 2, 160-140=20, THEN 20/2= 10.

I dont know how old it is, however I had this same exact reference about 6 years ago.

I actually came across that guys site last week, it maybe about 10years old based on that data.

For those of you that find spl ratings interesting, you should read up on the Tunguska event, in a nut shell, its an "unidentified" explosion that took place over Siberia right about 100years ago and the spl was estimated at 300-315 db (this was up in the atmosphere), loud and powerful enough to create a crater in the ground (now a lake) and make people 60 miles away think their clothes were about to catch on fire from the energy.

Made me laugh again.
