[Request] How accurate is this?(i.redd.it)

It's a logarithmic scale. Each additional cat, (or jet) adds less power to the sound.

The same way 70 dB cat * 2,000,000,000 cats is not more than 3x the dB value than one cat!

Thanks for the explanation! But a thing I still dont get... How exactly does (log) work? If you have 70 + (10*log) wouldnt it be greater than 20.000.000.000.000 dB?

I am so sorry for spamming questions I am just so confused about simple arithmetics :((

It is the power of one cat plus 10 times the log of 2 trillion.

Log (2,000,000,000,000) = 11.3

Power = 70 [dB] + 10 [db] * (11.3) = 163 [dB]

The logarithm is a function, log (2 trillion) is equivalent to: 10^(x) = 2 trillion, or ten to the power of x is 2 trillion, where x is log(2 trillion).

Ten times the cats increases x by one. So if instead of 2,000,000,000 cats we had 20,000,000,000 it would be 70 + 10 * 12.3.

Does this make sense?
