My math teachers always say you'll use it in real life, not sure this is what they had in mind.http://img2.mysmiley.net/imgs/smile/characters/character0158.gif (http://www.mysmiley.net/free-angel-smileys.php)

Since dB is not in units of energy (or any units for that matter), it cannot be added to, or subtracted from, any quantity of energy;)...your concept is funny though.

Not my concept, it was graffiti I saw when I went to see a band. I had been talking to the sound guy about whether he used test equipment when he EQd the sound and he said, rather defiantly, "I only use my ears". Judging by the typical sound quality, I had figured that was the case. When I told him about the graffiti, thinking that he would find it humorous, he said "I have no idea what you're talking about".

I just walked away.

"Since dB is not in units of energy (or any units for that matter), it cannot be added to, or subtracted from, any quantity of energy"

Technically no, but if you know the air temp, Baro and too many other parameters to bother dealing with, you could find out how much force a microphone diaphragm was being bombarded with when measuring SPL. Then, it could be converted to some other unit for the sake of over-analyzing it.:D

That guy is fast. I can barely square 1 digit numbers!!

Actually multiplying 2 digit numbers isn't hard, just can't do it that fast. Getting into 3 digit and above, you have to have a pornographic memory.....I mean photographic....I have the other.
