Related to Acoustic Resistance: acoustic impedance
acoustic resistance[ə′küs·tik ri′zis·təns]
a quantity that appears in the study of the vibrations of acoustic systems. It is the real component of acoustic impedance, which is the complex ratio of sound pressure to sound flux (volume velocity). The imaginary component of acoustic impedance is called acoustic reactance.
