Description:

This applet shows that if an airplane is flying faster than the speed of sound, it will produce a sonic boom or shock wave. The listener is represented by an ear. The user can change the location of the ear. The program draws sound wave paths to the listener. The order in which the sound paths arrive at the listener are shown.
