Acoustic impedance- pressure and velocity

  1. Feb 21, 2013 #1
    I find that the acoustic impedance is given by

    Z= Pressure/ Velocity

    I read that the acoustic impedance of a plane propagating wave is given by

    Z = ρ0c.

    What is ρ0 and c?

    Thanks a lot

    c=speed of sound
    ρ0 = density
