Sound pressure or acoustic pressure is the local pressure deviation from the ambient (average, or equilibrium) atmospheric pressure, caused by a sound wave. In air, sound pressure can be measured using a microphone, and in water with a hydrophone. The SI unit of sound pressure is the pascal (Pa).<ref name=“engineering toolbox">{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref>
