This is a story I read about a Sailor who worked around Jets all day for years. This room had some interesting effects!

Wouldn't the room become less quiet with a person in it?

I kinda want to put a bat in there?

How can it be - in decibel? I mean.. well I don't know, just sounds weird to me.   
   
Also, any source on this?

Decibels are measured off of a standard that came up with when they first invented decibels
So 0 decibels is the quietest room they could find when they unit was invented. This room is quieter than that
User avatar #451 to #446 - noket (05/19/2013) [-]
the room is designed to suppress sounds so well that actually a certain level of sound is absorbed
User avatar #454 to #451 - noket (05/19/2013) [-]
okay, actually i searched what a db really is, after reading the other comment, and it turns out that the decibel is a logarithmic unit, so 0db is 1 and negative values are numbers between 1 and 0..

The decibel is commonly used in acoustics to quantify sound levels relative to a 0 dB reference which has been defined as a sound pressure level of .0002 microbar, or 20 micropascals.[17] The reference level is set at the typical threshold of perception of an average human and there are common comparisons used to illustrate different levels of sound pressure. Sound pressure is a field quantity, so the formula used to calculate sound pressure level is the field version

i'm not actually understanding it so well, so if you want to understand yourself here's the link en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decibel#Acoustics

but i just woke up so.. i'm going to make myself a coffee

Simply put, decibels are a relative measurement. If you spoke into a microphone, the recorded volume would be 0dB, because its not relative to anything. If you doubled the volume mechanically, it would be 3dB. If you doubled it again, it would be 6dB and vice versa.

I see.. makes sense now.

Also, I just woke up myself.

How is it -9 decibels?
User avatar #462 to #415 - vondraco (05/19/2013) [-]
I think that when the decibel system was invented, 0 was just the quietest noise at the time but now with science and wizardry we are able to go below that level of quiet..
I actually have no idea, this is just the conclusion I have come to.
User avatar #421 to #415 - fuzziesquirrell (05/19/2013) [-]
the materials used in making the walls absorb sound. thats the way it was set up
#422 to #421 - jewnicorn (05/19/2013) [-]
I understand that, but isn't no noise just 0 decibels? I don't understand how it can be negative.
User avatar #423 to #422 - fuzziesquirrell (05/19/2013) [-]
when the walls absorb the sounds, it can go into the negative, my old ear doctor had a room like this one, it only went to -1 tho, used mainly for testing people that have hearing problems to determine what ear is going bad, and just how bad it is. if a sound is played on one side of your head, the opposite ear wont hear it, triped me out when he tested my hearing to show me how it worked

Aren't decibels a logarithmic value, for example 60 decibels is ten times noisier than 50 decibels. -9 decibels wouldn't mean negative noise, but an amount of noise a million times lesser than whatever is at 50 decibels.
User avatar #442 to #440 - fuzziesquirrell (05/19/2013) [-]
that i sadly dont know, just what little i do remember from what my doctor told me a long time ago. if you find out, let me know tho, i love information.

I actually want to try it. Just once, to really see and feel how it would be inside a room of complete silence.

Would someone be able to explain to me how it is possible to have a minus amount of decibels?

User avatar #58 to #54 - beggy (05/18/2013) [-]
Well, when there is negative amount of decibels, it means that if you`ll make a sound, in this case up to 9 decibels, you won`t hear them.
#83 to #54 - anon (05/18/2013) [-]
There is basically no noise to be heard so the sound frequency is so low. In a normal "quiet" room there is actually sound, whether you can hear it or not. But this room absorbs all the sound
User avatar #57 to #54 - greenhamster (05/18/2013) [-]
db are measured kinda like celsius, so you can have minus, minus bd just means really quiet like how -100 celsius means really cold
User avatar #62 to #57 - nsfwcontent (05/18/2013) [-]
Ah right thanks
User avatar #66 to #54 - swimmingprodigy (05/18/2013) [-]
decibels are measured on a logarithmic scale; something at 100 decibels is 10x louder than something at 80 decibels. Something at 60 decibels is 10x louder than something at 40 decibels. Similarly, something at -20 decibels is 10x quieter than something at 0 decibels.
