# Path Loss

The *inverse-square law* for electromagnetic radiation implies a
free space *path loss* proportional to the square of the distance.

The loss is given by the following equation:

` PathLoss(dB) = -32.45 + 20 * Log(Frequency) + 20 *
Log(Distance)`

where Frequency is in MHz and Distance is in km.
