Calculations are given of the acoustic radiation pressure on compressible spheres suspended freely in a plane progressive or plane stationary sound wave field in a non-viscous fluid. With plane progressive waves the radiation pressure on bubbles shows a prominent peak corresponding to resonance in the pulsation mode. With plane stationary waves, on the contrary, the radiation pressure on the resonant bubble vanishes and the directions of the pressure are such that the bubbles smaller than the resonant are forced towards the nodes and the larger ones towards the loops. On small spheres, of which the densities are of the same order as that of the surrounding medium, such phenomena in the radiation pressure disappear and the formulae contain the density-compressibility factors instead of King's density factors.
