Given that,Distance = 20.0 m

Average whisper = 20.0 dB

Sound level = 70.0 dB

We know that,The minimum intensity is

We need to calculate the sound intensity in the distance of 20 mUsing formula of sound intensityPut the value into the formula

If the conversation a sound level of 70.0 dB instead

We need to calculate the sound intensityUsing formula of sound intensityPut the value into the formula

We know that,The intensity is inversely proportional with the square of the distance.

We need to calculate the distanceUsing formula of intensityPut the value into the formula

Hence, The distance from the conversation should be 0.063 m.
