Term Category: Acoustics

Attenuation refers to the gradual reduction in intensity or strength of a signal as it travels through a medium or encounters an obstacle. In the context of sound, attenuation results in a decrease in sound energy as it propagates, leading to a quieter or less audible sound. This phenomenon is influenced by factors such as distance, absorption, scattering, and obstacles in the sound path.
