  1. The property of a material that changes acoustic energy into (usually) heat energy. A material or surface that absorbs sound waves does not reflect them. Absorption of a given material is frequency dependent as well as being affected by the size, shape, location, and mounting method used. Source: Church Audio & Acoustics Glossary
