Which is louder Moto GP or Formula 1?
Formula 1 race car: 118 decibels
MotoGP bike: 128 decibels
Jackhammer: 104 decibels.
Formula 1, however, wants to upgrade sound technology and increase it to 18,000 revolutions in the coming years. How loud that will be is not yet certain.
What is certain, however, is that it will be the loudest noise in the world:
Tambora explosion (volcanic eruption 1815 in Indonesia)
Tunguska meteor (with infrasound)
Earthquake of magnitude 5 on the Richter scale
Saturn V rocket
Fatal to humans
Most powerful loudspeaker to date
A sperm whale on land
On the deck of an aircraft carrier
Thunder of a thunderstorm
