Question
What is the acceptable distance(s) from which from intensity and volume of noise from an instrument or an engine be measured? 
Question
I wondered if there is/are any implication for a long (50-100) list of literature consulted, cited and listed in the reference section of the research article of 6-8 pages (excluding the reference list).
Question
Many software applications have been developed and adapted for use on phones. For example I have seen many android application on play store that measures intensity of noise. Likewise advert of some of these noisemeter apps on YouTube are shown to read the same value for noise intensity as noisemeter device itself. This prompted my curiosity to know if it  is acceptable to use such in research work and presentation. Thanks
