The motion of an elastic sphere in an acoustic wave field in fluids is determined as function of the elastic constants of the sphere, its radius, and the frequency of the wave field. It is found that the motion differs but little from the motion of an infinitely rigid sphere when the wave length of transverse waves in the elastic sphere is at least as long as the circumference of the sphere. The coefficient of zero order scattering potential in the fluid is determined.
