The Attenuation of Sound and the Constant of Radiation of Air A. WILMER DUFF 129 | THE NUMBER 3 PHYSICAL REVIEW A JOURNAL OF EXPERIMENTAL AND THEORETICAL PHYSICS XXXII MARCH 1898 THE intensity of sound spreading in spherical waves from a source would if no part of the energy of vibration were lost in the passage, vary inversely as the square of the distance. It is certain, however, that a considerable proportion of the vibrational energy must in every second be converted into heat, though no attempt seems to have been made to determine experimentally how large this portion is. The chief purpose of the present paper is to describe some observations made by the author with a view to obtaining a rough estimate of this important quantity.
