The concepts of continuum mechanics will be applied to the propagation of a plane, longitudinal, simple, acoustic wave of finite amplitude in an arbitrary medium. In this way a relationship will be found between the characteristic (∂x/∂t) v and the equation of state of the sound conducting medium, p = p(ϱ), v = v(ϱ). This relationship holds for any physically existing medium. In this relationship two parameters will figure: C 0, the velocity of sound and α. α represents the nonlinearity of the wave propagation and it is a measure of the distortion of the wave in the medium. The equation of state will be defined of a linear medium, i.e. a medium propagating without any distortion. This medium will be called isomorphium henceforth.
