What does acoustic radiation pressure mean as a name of something?
- (acoustics) the pressure exerted on a surface normal to the direction of propagation of a sound wave
Acoustic radiation pressure is the apparent pressure difference between the average pressure at a surface moving with the displacement of the wave propagation and the pressure that would have existed in the fluid of the same mean density when at rest. Numerous authors make a distinction between the phenomena of Rayleigh radiation pressure and Langevin radiation pressure.
