    I am in need to calculate the ultrasound (20MHz) absorption of particles (polystyrene of size 15 microns) in water. I tried to search in the internet, but couldnt find any simple analytical expressions. Can someone please help me !

    Not sure that it has the information, but there is a Dover book on the basic topic: A. B. Bhatia, "Ultrasonic Absorption: An Introduction to the Theory of Sound Absorption and Dispersion in Gases, Liquids and Solids."
