In a previous article we reported on the standardization of normal hearing for bone conduction. All of our findings were reported in force units. Because many international users of this information express such findings in units of acceleration, we have, at the Editor’s request, converted our force units into acceleration units to increase the scope of our results and to enhance their comparison with other investigations. This note presents data which may be useful to organizations concerned with the development of standards for normal hearing by bone conduction.
