Particles that have a density and compressibility comparable to those of the surrounding medium (weak scatterers) are often modeled as spherical scatterers of equivalent volume. The simplicity and symmetry of the spherical model does not however account for the effect of the angle of incidence of the incident field onto the particle. By performing a comparative study of scattering models for the case of a fluid sphere, it is shown that models derived using the Born approximation closely match...Expand abstract
