The influence of intrinsic absorption in a relaxing medium and the resulting three-dimensional diffraction correction of the magnitude of the acoustic pressure averaged over the surface of a receiver is investigated for a tone burst. A rigorous formula for the damped acoustic pressure average at the receiver was obtained for arbitrary pulsed waves in a mono-relaxing medium. Depending on the pulse oscillation frequency, envelope duration, and relaxation frequency of the media, the plane wave burst envelope can be reduced, amplified, or otherwise deformed.
