If you put your smartphone on a washing machine rotating at 1200 rpm, you would see a sharp peak at 20 Hz, for instance.” (supposing you know what an FFT is) Anything could be converted to decibels: at the end it is just a relative data unit for a logarithmic scale. So, if you define a reference value in a (best) fixed frequency experiment you could invent your own decibel scale… ok i think i now able to understand this little bit it would help me a lot if you please mention some place where i can read more on this  thankyou for you generosity and help sir. « Next Oldest | Next Newest »
