Use the equation given by:
β = ( 10 d B ) log 10 ( I I 0 )
If l is doubled, use a property of logarithms to get the new value of the intensity level, β . We have:
β = ( 10 d B ) log 10 ( 2 I I 0 ) ( 10 d B ) [ log 10 ( 2 ) + log 10 ( I I 0 ) ]
= ( 10 d B ) log 10 2 + β = 3 d B + 65 d B = 68 d B
Result:
68dB
