Loudness of Sounds of Different Frequency and Intensity: the Generalized Weber Law for Hearing
Aim — rigorous scientific and theoretical substantiation of the Weber law for determination of loudness of sounds of different frequency and intensity.
Objects and methods. E.H. Weber's experimental results on subjective perception of objectively measured parameters of external irritants, their theoretical substantiation for sounds of the standard frequency 1 kHz, biophysical and biomathematical modeling of loudness of sounds with different parameters.
Results. The Weber law by author for determination of loudness of sounds of different frequency and intensity is evidence based.
