In acoustic tubes, we again work with
Pressure Plane Waves:
Longitudinal Volume-Velocity Waves:
where is the cross-sectional area of the tube. In an acoustic tube, it is volume velocity that is conserved from one tube section to the next.
Ohm's Law for Traveling Plane Waves in an Acoustic Tube:
is the wave impedance of air in terms of mass density , sound speed , and tube cross-section area .
