Textbook Problem

Calculate the reflected percentage of an ultrasound wave passing from human muscle into bone. Muscle has a typical density of 1.06 × 103 kg/m3 and bone has a typical density of 1.90 × 103 kg/m3.

To determine
The reflected percentage of ultrasound wave.

Explanation

Given Info: Density of a muscle is 1.06×103kg/m3 and density of a bone is 1.90×103kg/m3 .

Formula for reflected percentage of ultrasound wave,

PR=(ρiρtρi+ρt)2×100

  • ρi is the density of the muscle.
  • ρt is the density of the bone.

Substitute 1.06×103kg/m3 for ρi and 1
