 Annual Appeal: Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. In 2018 we replaced the server with a faster one, added 20000 new sequences, and reached 7000 citations (often saying "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). Other ways to donate

 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS Radius of a sphere with surface area 1. According to Fouad (2004), to simulate the distance of a sound source under free field conditions, one can multiply "the waveform directly by a gain factor that is the square root of the intensity," which can be computed with the formula D = sqrt(1/(4 * Pi * d^2)) = 1/(3.55 * d), where d is the distance between the sound source and the listener and 3.55 is approximately 10(sqrt(Pi)/5) (A019707) (equation 15 in the chapter), though "in practice we usually drop the constant multiplier" (4 * Pi). If the distance is one unit, then D works out to this number. - Alonso del Arte, Jun 10 2012 REFERENCES Hesham Fouad, "Spatialization with Stereo Loudspeakers: Understanding Balance, Panning and Distance Attenuation" in Audio Anecdotes II: Tools, Tips, and Techniques for Digital Audio, K.
