Ultrasound is sound above the range of human hearing, Sonic(20 to 20,000Hz) Human Hearing Range Sub-Sonic(20,000Hz) Ultrasonic velocity is the speed in which sound propogates in a certain material. It depends on material density & elasticity. Velocity is constant for a given material. Ultrasound is sound above the human hearing range. Sonic(20 to 20,000Hz) human hearing range, Sub-sonic(20,000Hz). Ultrasonic velocity is the speed in which sound travels through a given material. It is affected by density and elasticity. Velocity remains constant in a given material.
