Simple formulas for the dependence of the amplitude of the pressure of sound, generated when laser radiation is absorbed in air, on the frequency of modulation of the laser beam, on the spatial spectrum of the intensity distribution in the beam, as well as on the parameters of kinetic cooling of air are derived.
