Acoustic Wave Motion
When analyzing acoustic systems, the primary variables of interest are
is defined as force per unit area. It can also be interpreted as energy density.
In acoustic systems, velocity can be expressed either in terms of
In enclosed air ducts, it is more typical to consider
or particle velocity times the cross-section area
