Acoustic impedance

Esta entrada también está disponible en: French, German, Spanish, Portuguese

Interference with the passage of sound waves by objects in the path of those waves. It equals the velocity of sound in a medium multiplied by the density of the medium. The acoustic impedance of bone may be nearly five times as great as that of blood. Testing middle ear acoustic impedance is part of audiological evaluation batteries used to detect middle ear problems.
