G Weighted Overall Level

G weighting purportedly reflects human response to infrasound. The curve is defined to have a gain of zero dB at 10Hz. Between 1Hz & 20Hz the slope is approximately 12dB per octave. The cut-off below 1Hz has a slope of 24dB per octave, and above 20Hz the slope is -24 dB per octave.


On a logarithmic frequency scale this is:
