The oscillation period (in seconds) for the bubble effect varies as the cube root of the energy and inversely as the power of the pressure.

Rayleigh-Willis relation for representative energy sources. Source depth=9 m. (Courtesy Bendix United Geophysical.)

The relation is

where is the energy in joules, is the depth in feet, and is the depth in meters.
