Yes, most bullets travel faster than sound(340m/s). Not fair :smirk:

haha. IF the shooter is far away enough you will see the flash (if any) feel it and then hear the sound...

So then if they travel faster than the speed of sound, why dont they creat a sonic boom?? Too small of an object??

I'M not sure on the specifics of it but a sonic boom has to do with the pressure of the shock wave caused by the aircraft/car traveling faster than the speed of sound. They are also mostly traveling at a constant speed or increasing speed, a bullet is to small to cause such a shock wave as a car or a plane, and is loosing momentum and height as it travels.

They do, but since the bullet is small, the sonic boom is usually masked by the barrel noise.

Speaking of sonic booms, there is only one non-powered object that humans can make exceed the speed of sound. Can you name it?

I'll post the answer in 30 minutes.  :tongue:

a whip.

DING DING DING!

You got it!

The energy is innitially imparted into the mass of the entire whip, but then it propagates as a wave until it reaches the tip where it's concentrated. This raises the velocity of the tip until its speed exceeds that of sound.

How'd you know?

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

I just found that on Wikipedia also. If you look under sonic boom, on related topics they have bullwhip.

So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.
