Planet Circumference Correlated to Light and sound :

This data does correspond more or less to standard colors assigned to the planets.

  • Formula: Wavelength (A) = frequency (hz)/ Speed of Light
  • A= Speed of light in Angstroms
  • hz = Frequency of sound in Hertz. 60 hertz is 60 waves per second
  • Speed of light on Earth's Surface 299,727,738 meters per second
  • Color hz is 40 Octaves below the frequency of light
  • Brainwave hz is 46 octaves below Frequency of light
Sidereal Orbit of Planets in Light and Sound :

This is calculated using the time it takes each planet to orbit the Sun. This is heliocentric data, not apparent movement from the earth. Traditional Astrology is based on geocentric (earth based) movements.

Frequencies, Sounds and Noise :

Loudness is measured in decibels (dB) which is measured by a dBA filter, which closely matches how the human ear absorbs sound. Acousticians sometimes use other scales, such as dBC, which includes low and very high frequencies that human ears cannot register.

Type of sound
Level of Decibels (dB)
Human threshold of hearing 0 dB
Very quiet nature sounds 10 dB
Whisper 20 dB
Inside a sound-insulated recording studio registers 20 dB
Living Room 40 dB
Quiet Office 40 dB
Lobby of Office Building 55 dB
Air Conditioning Unit 60 dB
Conversational Speech 60 dB
A loud telephone ring 70 dB
Train Station 64-75 dB
Riding a Train, rumbling 75 dB - 86 dB
Alarm Clock (1 Meter) 80 dB
Hair Dryer 80 dB
Train Braking 95 to 98 dB
Full power earphones 100dB
Front row at Rock Concert 110 dB
A jet engine 120 dB
A loud rock concert 120
Painfully loud 120 dB
Thunderclap 130 dB
Air Raid Siren, 1 Meter away 130 dB
Rocket Launching 180 dB
Threshold of Death [1] 180 dB

"The U.S. Army Medical Department ominously lists 180 dB as the threshold of death, the point at which sound can cause fatal injuries. Pressure waves generated by explosions or weapon noise, for instance, can rupture air-filled organs, such as lungs." Protect your ears OSHA Daily Permissible Noise Level Exposure.

NOTES :

  • One-third of the total power of a 75-piece orchestra comes from the bass drum.
  • High frequency sounds of 2-4,000 Hz are the most damaging. The uppermost octave of the piccolo is 2,048-4,096 Hz.
  • Aging causes gradual hearing loss, mostly in the high frequencies.
  • Speech reception is not seriously impaired until there is about 30 dB loss; by that time severe damage may have occurred.
  • The incidence of hearing loss in classical musicians has been estimated at 4-43%, in rock musicians 13-30%.

Energy and Sound :

The energy of a wave is determined by a unit called intensity of a sound wave. "The greater the amplitude of vibrations of the particles of the medium, the greater the rate at which energy is transported through it, and the more intense that the sound wave is * "Intensity is the energy/time/area; and since the energy/time ratio is equivalent to the quantity power, intensity is simply the power/area.

The intensity of a sound drops drops quickly with distance :

We don't hear sounds at the same decibel level the same way. The rumble of a train is a mixed noise spread over many frequencies that blend together and due to the wave patterns, can even cancel each other out - much like ripples in a pond. With a purer tone, the energy is strong strong with much less interference from other noise. "Intense pure-tone sounds are more annoying."

Continuous sounds over about 85 dB can result in hearing loss over time :

Loud sounds put too much pressure on the cochlear hair cells, which can damage or kill them. Once dead, they do not regenerate, so hearing is permanently affected.

About 10% of Americans have some hearing lost, with one in three of them over the age of 65. Deafness can be across all spectrums of sounds or can be deafness only to certain frequencies - including some patterns with deafness to the higher frequencies of children's and women's voices.

"The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 50 percent of deafness and hearing impairment is preventable."

The human ear is most attuned to frequencies between 1,000 to 4,000 Hz, the range is from 20-Hz to 20,0000 Hz. Younger people are better at hearing the more extreme frequencies.

Table Frequencies Heard by Various Species :

Animal
Highest Normal Frequency heard
Humans* 20,0000
Dogs 45,000 Hz
Mice 91,000 Hz
Bats 110,000 Hz
Dolphins and porpoises 150,000 Hz.
  • Humans hear the best at frequencies of 1,000 to 4,000.
    • People under 20 hear more tones than adults.

Conversion of dB to Hertz :

1kHz 0dB
10kHz - 2.5 db

Sound and Health :

"A sound that is interpreted as noise, as something we don’t want to hear, causes stress which causes problems with the heart, the gut, and other organs."
