Answer:

The energy will be increased by a factor 16

Explanation:

Mathematically, we have it that the energy carried by the sound wave is directly proportional to the square of the amplitude

So we have it that;

E = k * A^2

where E is the wave energy

K is the constant value

A is the amplitude value

So;

If E1 = k * (A1)^2

E2 = k * (A2)^2

But A2 = 4A1

E2 = k * (4A1)^2

E2 = k * 16(A1)^2

Divide E2 by E1

E2/E1 = k/k * 16(A1)^2/(A1)^2

E2/E1 = 16

E2 = 16 * E1

so simply, the energy will be increased by a factor of 16
