Best Answer

Pascal means the pressure = force divided by area. Decibels means a logarithmic unit of measurement that expresses the magnitude of a physical quantity relative to a specified or implied reference level. Since it is a ratio of two quantities with the same unit, it is a dimensionless unit. The difference is like between a car and a banana.
