Note 2: Ambient noise level is usually measured in dB above a reference pressure level of 0.00002 Pa, i.e., 20 Pa (micropascals) in SI units. A pascal is a newton per square meter. Note 3: In the centimeter-gram-second system of units, the reference level for measuring ambient noise level is 0.0002 dyn/cm2. Synonym room noise level.
