8,475,774 B2; Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies has patented a composition comprising a continuous water phase; a discontinuous oil phase comprising a UV-absorbing polyester that is formed by a polycondensation reaction of dimerdiol (monomer 1), di-trimethylolpropane (monomer 2), dimethyladipate (monomer 3) and benzenepropanoic acid (monomer 4), in an amount effective to provide the composition with an SPF of about 2 or more in the absence of a UV-screening compound; and an oil gelling polymer.

He discusses how impedance affects the propagation of sound waves; the significance and units of the other physical values of sound pressure, speed, energy, power, and intensity; the reflection and transmission of sound waves on a discontinuous surface; how radiation, scattering, and diffraction depend on the spatial distribution of a discontinuous surface or the pattern by which an impedance mismatch is distributed in space, and how change in sound depends on the size and form of the space propagating it.
