Several integral identities related to acoustic scattering are presented. In each case the identity involves the integral over frequency of a physical quantity. For instance, the integrated transmission loss, a measure of the transmitted acoustic energy through an inhomogeneous layer, is shown to have a simple expression in terms of spatially averaged physical quantities. Known identities for the extinction cross section and for the acoustic energy loss in a slab with a rigid backing, are shown to be special cases of a general procedure for finding such integral identities.
