Which wave property determines loudness?

The power, or loudness, of sound is measured on a scale of increased by a factor of $100\left( { = {{10}^2}} \right)$, the sound is called twice as loud and when it increases $10,000\left( { = {{10}^4}} \right)$ times it is called four times as loud. The exponent of ten is called a bel and one decibel is one-tenth of a bel. Zero decibels is chosen as the intensity of the slowest sound which is just audible or is on the threshold of hearing whereas the intensity of the loudest sound is about 170 decibels. A sound of 60 decibels is ___ times more intense than a sound of 40 decibels:

A. 20

B. 100

C. ${10^{20}}$

D. None of these

A. 20

B. 100

C. ${10^{20}}$

D. None of these
