The results of some experimental measurements, made to determine the hydrophone‐size correction factor, are presented and compared with the theoretical results of Corcos. The measurements agree with Corcos' theoretical hydrophone‐size correction factors over the range of Strouhal numbers, from 0.01 to 4.0, covered by the experiment. In addition, a practical method of determining effective hydrophone size is presented.
