Decibel

+ add to my flashcards
This is simply a measure of sound intensity. When you are at the Smashing Pumpkins concert, standing next to the speakers, banging your head, the volume of the music is measured in decibels. The higher the decibels, the louder the music and the higher the decibel level, the more likely it is to cause damage to your auditory system....What did you say?
