The Vernier Sound Level Sensor allows you to easily measure sound level in decibels (dB) in a variety of school settings. Simply connect and collect. No background knowledge of sound-level weighting, response times or the decibel scale is needed to use this sensor.

The Sound Level Sensor is A-weighted, meaning it responds to sound loudness the same way the human ear does. It measures sound level to within 3dB along a single range from 50 to 100dB, with no need to switch between ranges during an experiment. You can monitor classroom sound levels, measure reverberation time and investigate sound insulation.

For in-depth sound studies the SLM-BTA Vernier Sound Level Meter is a better tool for high school or university physics.
If you are interested in collecting sound waves data use the MCA-BTA Vernier Microphone.
