A decibel isn't a definite amount of anything. It's a unit used to compare two powers. 1 decibel more = 25.89% more power 3 decibels more = twice as much power 3 decibels less = half as much power 10 decibels more = 10 times as much power 10 decibels less = 0.1 as much power 20 decibels more = 100 …times as much power You don't know how much any number of decibels is until you know what it's compared to.

A machine gun, is a self-loading gun that can fire multiple shots with a single actuation of a trigger. It will fire for as long as the trigger is held pulled or pressed or until the ammunition runs out. Machine guns are also called automatic guns, or fully automatic, to distinguish from semi-auto s…elf-loading guns that fire once per actuation of the trigger. Machine guns can be recoil-operated, gas-operated, or externally driven by hydraulic, electric or other means. Most machine guns have a single barrel, however some have multiple barrels in a rotating assembly. The difference between those and other multi-barrel systems such as volley guns is that only one barrel fires at a time. ( Full Answer )
57 decibels is about the noise that a high speed toothbrush makes or the low setting on an alarm clock or telephone. It can be loud enough to wake you up.

Loudness of stereo speaker measured in decibels varies inversely as the sq of your distance from the speaker At 8 ft from the speaker the loudness is 28 decibels What is loudness 4ft from speaker?
Feelings are different from person to person. So don't talk of "measuring" the "loudness".. You can really measure the sound pressure with a sound pressure level meter.. At 8 ft from the speaker sound pressure level (SPL) is 28 decibels. What is loudness 4 ft from the speaker?. You get 6 dB more …level at half the distance r = 1/2 , that is 34 dB. The sound pressure varies with distance 1/ r from the sound source. There is nothing squared!. Scroll down to related links and look at "Sound pressure p and the inverse distance law 1/r".

A Browning M2 Heavy Machine gun with a 66418 serial would have beenmanufactured around 1958. Over 3 million M2 .50 cal machine gunshave been manufactured.
Fundamentally, 43 decibels is loud. It is probably enough to annoyneighbors, but anything 85 decibels is enough to hurt hearing.
well put it this way you should not use any gun bigger then a .22lr with out ear protection, if you use something as big as a .300, .30-06, .338, and big Cartridge like that you will get ear damage and start to lose your hearing. tho even .308 and .223 will make you ears ring so it is safer to use e…ar protection ( Full Answer )
A sound at 15 decibels is not very load. It is equivalent to thesound that watch makes when ticking.
at close range (person holdin gun) Between 120-160Db Depending on type which is loud enough to blow your eardrums Its Louder than fire crackers . Very Loud- Shooting a 9mm without earplugs- my ears were ringing for a whole week always wear earplugs when shooting..............
That depends how close you measure "the ocean". The closer - the louder! The distance is very important if you measure with a sound pressure level meter.
A machine gun is a firearm that with one pull of the trigger will feed and fire 2 or more rounds in succession. Most machine guns are belt fed and fire high powered rifle ammunition. Similar weapons include Assault Rifles and Sub-machine Guns which fire intermediate and pistol caliber rounds.. An e…xample of a machine gun would be a Browning M1919 or Browning M2. ( Full Answer )
It depends only how close you are to the shouter's mouth.. The closer, the more decibels the sound pressure level will show.
0 dB is the reference for sound pressure. That is the threshold of hearing. So 1 dB is not loud.
120 decibels is the sound of a jet engine, or the volume of loud rock music at a concert.
That depends on you and your sensitivity. 120 dB is terribly loud.\n. \nPeople who run sound for events (other than those where attendees generally both expect and want it to be loud, such as rock concerts) find that typically they begin getting complaints about it being "too loud" somewhere in the… vicinity of 90 dB. ( Full Answer )
\nMany kinds of instruments measure signals in decibels (dB).\n. \nSince dB represents nothing more than a log ratio of two quantities, anything that can be quantized could be measured in dB.\n. \nThe most common things measured that way, however, are:\n. \n . Sound Levels (an SPL Meter) \n . …Electrical power levels (a Network Analyser, a Spectrum Analyser, Power Meters) \n . Light levels (an Optical Spectrum analyser or Power Meter).\n . \nNote that dB is always a relative term, however figures are often quoted with respect to some reference such as 'dB(SPL)" used for sound where the reference is the quietest sound a human can hear, or dBm for electrical power where the reference is 1 mW.

The sound pressure of 45 dB is about a quiet library and 50 dB is about an everage home.
Painfully loud. Almost like the sound from sandblasting or a loud rock concert. 120 decibels is close to the pain threshold in human hearing, and yes sound can be painful.
Nobody was there with sound pressure level meter (SPL meter). It depends really how close you are to the krakatoa. The closer - the louder.
As far as we know, production numbers for the military were never published. Contact browning Customer Service and ask for historical information. Link is below
The weakest sound heard is measured at 0 decibels, while theloudest possible is 194 decibels. The noise levels at 55 decibelswould be fairly quiet, somewhere between whisper and a normalconversation.
Loudness has to do with the sensitivity of the ears of an individial. The question belongs to psycho acoustics and is not easy to answer. Answer Loudness depends on the volume and intensity of the sound. A deaf person cannot hear and thus has insensitive ears. Her ear insensitivity has no eff…ect on the loudness of a nearby boombox. A decibel is a logarithmic scale of loudness used to measure the strength or loudness of a signal. Your noise would need to be measured in order to determine its value in decibels. A whisper is about 20 decibels. A sound measured at around 120 decibels would border on pain. Normal conversation measures at about 60-70 decibels. ( Full Answer )
It is equivalent to the noise of the conversation of a group of 40 or so in a smallish restaurant. Such a level is dangerous for the hearing for more than four hours of exposure: either go outside for a break from time to time or wear earplugs.
Approx: 87 decibells. It would depend on how old the cow is.or 85 to be exact it really does depend on their age but my professor told me most cows moo at that level it's very easy to spot a cow ya know
A few examples are . Telephone dial tone. 80dB. City Traffic (inside car). 85dB. Train whistle at 500', Truck Traffic. 90dB. Subway train at 200'. 95dB. Level at which sustained exposure may result in hearing loss . 90 - 95dB . Power mower at 3'. 107dB. Snowmobile, Motorcycle. 100d…B. Power saw at 3'. 110dB. Sandblasting, Loud Rock Concert. 115dB.

Varies by model. The standard M2 HBAR has a rate of fire from 400 - 600 rounds per minute. The aircraft AN/M2 has a rate of fire from 750 - 900 rounds per minute, and the AN/M3 has a rate of fire of 1200 rounds per minute. The M2 HBAR is standard for ground applications, while the AN/M2 and AN/M3 ar…e intended for mounting in aircraft. ( Full Answer )
The sound you hear when a gun is fired is the rapid expansion of gasses that escape the barrel once the bullet leaves the barrel.
This is a typical wrong believe that a jackhammer has 110 dB, a rock band has 120 dB and a Honda Cr85 must have 130 dB. Every one seems to be content with these wrong numbers. If there is no given distance with the measured decibel value, such numbers are really nonsense. With doubling the dista…nce from a sound source the decibels decrease by 6 dB. So a Honda Cr85sound can be at 12.5 m distance 130 dB. At 25 m distance 124 dB, at 50 m distance 118 dB and at 100 m distance only 114 dB. You see how important it is to tell always the distance with the measured decibel level. Don't believe that only a specific decibel value belongs to noise source, like here the Honda Cr85.

A 50 calibre machine gun can have any length or width. The inside of the barrel is 1/2 inch. Gradually calibre as a gun size is being dropped in favor of metric. For example 9 mm is replacing 38 calibre. A 38 calibre pistol will shoot a 9 mm bullet. Mortars are now 61 mm instead of a calibre.
They range from 80 to 110 db, depending on the type or cap and the distance from the ear its being measured to.
Either an actual machine gun or I'm guessing a exhaust manifold leak. Another possibility can be something rotational hitting metal, maybe check around your drive belt area.
Yes. Noise at this level is described as deafening. Noise past 90 dB can cause damage. 160 dB is 64 times as loud as 90 dB.

It would probably be around 90 decibels, if you were trying to talk over a crowd, a lot more.
The M2, by far. The M2 uses the much more powerful 12.7x99mm (.50 BMG) cartridge, whereas the M1917 uses the much smaller and less powerful 7.62x63mm (.30-06) cartridge.

White noise machines are meant to play soothing sounds (such as rushing air) and are quiet, so as to be relaxing. They are loud enough to block or or take attention away from disturbing noises of neighbors and traffic, but quiet enough as to not disturb others or be bothersome.
Depends on the machine gun. Average somewhere around 154-160 decibels. Wear good hearing protection. That level of sound is associated with pain and hearing loss.
131 decibles is extremely loud. The noise from the loudest sportingevents is about 131 decibles.
A typical box of linked rounds will contain a single 100 round belt. As many of these can be linked together as required.
The wind can have any level from 30 db (breeze blowing around objects) to 60 db (onshore sea winds) and up to 90 db (hurricane winds). Tornadoes can be even louder ( freight train ) within about a hundred yards of the vortex.
Well, with any frequency, you would technically get the same volume, which means that either way, 50Hz \ 89.6Hz/ = 70 dB But with human hearing, it varies, since we cannot hear very high pitches, as you climb the frequency scale, the volume will drop until it becomes inaudible. So it really depen…ds on whether you are going on human hearing or actual volume. ( Full Answer )
At a quarter mile from the launch pad the measured decibels were 160 to 170, far beyond the pain threshold for humans of 120 to 130 decibels. There are even louder events on Earth, e.g. a blue whale under water 188 decibels, a 1-ton TNT bomb at 250 feet even 210 decibels; directly above the epicente…r of a 5.0 Richter scale earth quake 235 decibels; finally the famous Tunguska meteor of 1908 estimated at 300 (comparable to a 1000-Megaton bomb). The decibels scale is logarithmic, which means each increase in 10 constitutes a doubling of intensity. ( Full Answer )
Decibels are really more a measure of sound level. 65 decibels would be about the level of normal conversation or laughter.
it depends on how many people go there if you hade lots around about 70dbs
The loudness of the radio was measured at a high decibel level by the council authorities.
