E305 -- De la propagation du son

(On the propagartion of sound)

(based on Clifford A. Truesdell's introduction to Opera Omnia Series II, Volume 12)
Euler analyzes the forces that act on a slice of air that is in a disturbed state at y but was initially at x. This analysis is customary in modern elementary works.

According to C. G. J. Jacobi, a treatise with this title was presented to the Berlin Academy on November 1, 1759.
