Other than audiologists and engineers working in industrial noise control, audiologists will almost always use sound level or sound pressure, rather than intensity. When in doubt, use the terms “pressure,” “sound pressure level,” and “SPL” and you will be right 99% of the cases!

When measuring sound or noise we often get immersed in dBA, sound pressures, intensity, levels, etc. Do we need all of those? Most probably, no! It depends what you want to describe/measure, but still you have to know which term to use and when! Alberto Behar will sort it out for us.
