The problem of calculating the kinetic energy created by impulsive acceleration of an incompressible continuously stratified fluid is formulated. Solutions are obtained for small density perturbations and a particular profile for various Atwood numbers and length scales. The kinetic energy is reduced when the undisturbed density variation is more diffuse.
