Acoustical response of hair receptors in insects
A detailed mechanical model is developed to account for the behaviour of hair-like acoustical sensory receptors in insects. For the small hair diameters commonly found, it is concluded that the force acting on the moving hair is caused almost entirely by the viscosity of the air, as analyzed long ago by Stokes. The result of this viscous force is to provide a bending moment about the base of the hair that is proportional to the acoustic particle velocity but that lags behind it by about 135°....[Show more]
