Abstract: In this paper, the dose range of 20% to 30000000% was considered corresponding to a time-weighted average range of 63dBA to 124.8dBA. This range represents a typical exposure dosage range in most industries/companies in Jos (Chagok, 2010) and possibly Nigeria and other developing countries. The doses and their corresponding time-weighted averages confirm the 3dBA doubling rate and also support the Equal Energy Hypothesis (EEH).
