Answer :

Given:
Initial sound level

Final sound level



Constant reference intensity




We can find initial intensity
using:




On solving, we get:




Similarly,




On substituting the values and solving, we get:



As the intensity is proportional to the square of pressure amplitude
we have:




Hence, the pressure amplitude is increased by factor.
