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.
