Ultrasonic reverberation measurements in liquids II

  • C. E. Mulders


A formula is given for the ultrasonic reverberation in a vessel, filled with a liquid. The contributions of the different causes of absorption of energy to the total attenuation of sound are discussed. The formula has been checked experimentally and is used for the determination of the absorption of sound in aqueous solutions of several salts, especially MgSO4.
