Attenuation : Absorbtion

Please sign up for the course before starting the lesson.

Absorption This is the phenomenon of transfer of beam energy during the compressive part of the cycle, to the material though which the wave is travelling Some of the ultrasound energy as it propagates through a medium is absorbed by that medium it is propagating through. The energy is transformed into heat, raising the temperature Read more about Attenuation : Absorbtion[…]
