Sonic boom (3 marks)

Dear student,

When an object travels through the air, it creates a series of pressure waves. If the speed of the object is greater than the speed of sound (that is, supersonic), the pressure waves are more congested and merge to form a single shock wave. These shock waves produce enormous amount of sound energy, like an explosion. This phenomenon is known as the sonic boom.
