Instantaneous driving force of acoustic streaming in the thermoviscous medium is the subject of investigation. Dynamic equation of the Eulerian streaming velocity is a result of splitting the hydrodynamic equations into acoustic and non-acoustic parts. The acoustic force represents a sum of three parts, one is the classic one, which being averaged over the sound period coincides with the well-known expression. The second one is connected to the periodicity of the sound, it becomes exact zero after averaging for the strictly periodic sound but is not zero for other acoustic wave. The last term originates from the sound divergence. All terms are nonlinear and proportional to the overall attenuation. The consistent comparative analysis of both formula for quasi-periodic and modulated sound is proceeded.
