mediumpower talker

A hypothetical talker, within a lognormal distribution of talkers, whose volume lies at the medium power of all talkers determining the volume distribution at the point of interest. Note: When the distribution follows a lognormal curve (values expressed in decibels), the mean and standard deviation can be used to compute the mediumpower talker. The talker volume distribution follows a lognormal curve and the mediumpower talker is uniquely determined by the average talker volume. The mediumpower talker volume, V, is given by V = V_{o} + 0.115^{2}, where V_{o} is the average of the talker volume distribution in volume units (vu), and ^{2} is the variance of the distribution.
