What is the measure of loudness?

Loudness refers to how loud or soft a sound seems to a listener. The loudness of sound is determined, in turn, by the intensity, or amount of energy, in sound waves. The unit of intensity is the decibel (dB). As decibel levels get higher, sound waves have greater intensity and sounds are louder.

Consequently, what is the unit of measurement for sound?

A sound unit is any acoustic unit of sound measurement. dB, decibel - noise of sound measurement is called decibels (dB). Ratio of the sound pressure to reference pressure to something. sone - a unit of perceived loudness equal to the loudness of a 1000-hertz tone at 40 dB above threshold, starting with 1 sone.

What is the unit of measurement of light?

The lux (symbol: lx) is the SI derived unit of illuminance and luminous emittance, measuring luminous flux per unit area. It is equal to one lumen per square metre. In photometry, this is used as a measure of the intensity, as perceived by the human eye, of light that hits or passes through a surface.

What is the unit of sound energy?

Sound energy density or sound density is the sound energy per unit volume. The SI unit of sound energy density is the pascal (Pa), that is the joule per cubic metre (J/m3) in SI based units.
