I was reading some articles about acoustic levitation and I was wondering whether it is possible to lift a 100 kips load off the ground for about 0.5-1 inches with that. If it is, how should I calculate how much energy I need to deliver to a ultrasound speaker and effectively concentrate with a lens that can be used to produce such lift on an object.
I am not very familiar with this subject, so forgive me if I am asking some pretty dum question here. Thanks!!
Edit - Somebody apparently downvoted the question without saying why, I don't exactly know why. But I thought I should put some additional info to help people understand what I am referring to. Showing some "effort".... It is such a new field that there are not a lot of articles on how you calculate something like this and what is realistic.
