The purpose of this article is to provide an analytical solution for the acoustic field in a duct with sinusoidal area variation along the length. The equation describing the acoustic field in a variable area duct is a second-order partial differential equation. It is converted into a second-order ordinary linear differential equation, whose solution is dependent on the choice of area variation. The solution for the differential equation is obtained in terms of the area and is obtained neglecting the mean flow. Therefore, it is applicable in the absence of mean flow or in cases where the effects of mean flow are insignificant.
