The attenuation coefficient and the phase velocity of micrometer-sized polydivinylbenzene particles in water were investigated by ultrasound spectroscopy equipped with 10–30 MHz longitudinal wave transducers. While the surrounding liquid could be assumed to be inviscid for large particles with the size comparable to the wavelength of longitudinal ultrasound, the viscous and thermal waves were considered to have important roles with decreasing the particle size because the particle size becomes comparable with those wavelengths. In this study, these contributions were systematically investigated by changing the particle-size.
