Abstract:

A modification is proposed in Hirschs equation for determining the range of a sound source of unknown strength H. R. Hirsch, J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 43, 373-374 1968. The modified formula is free of approximations and reduces to Woodworths solution in the limit. Greenes Comments on Hirschs Letter are shown to incorrectly estimate the relative error in human auditory ranging D. C. Greene, J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 44, 634 1968. In a brief experiment two subjects were unable to make distance judgments. Author
