acoustic wave

A pressure wave transmitted through a gas, liquid, or solid as a result of small displacements of the particles in the medium. The medium has elasticity and inertia; when set into motion it undergoes alternate compressions and rarefactions that travel through the medium with a speed characteristic of the medium.

acoustic wave

[ə′küs·tik ′wāv]
(acoustics)
An elastic nonelectromagnetic wave that has a frequency which may extend into the gigahertz range; one type is a surface acoustic wave, and the other type is a bulk or volume acoustic wave. Also known as elastic wave.
