Acoustic power is the total energy radiated by the ultrasonic source per unit of time; it can be calculated from acoustic intensity and the area of the radiating surface [47].
The intense cavitation was induced close to the probe tip for high acoustic power and might absorb a great part of the acoustic wave energy, resulting in preventing the sound from penetrating deeply in the liquid.
