[quote:Anonymous Coward 31036137:MV8yMTQzMTE5XzM2MTkzMjIyXzYwNDE2Mjg0] At some point, enough energy will reach a climax of propagation as a sonic boom. The rest of the energy behind it pushes it further, until the energy available drops below the sonic boom threshold and deteriorates. A pressure ratio of 2/1 will create a flow of air at the speed of sound and no faster. Which is why bottles full of high pressure do not depressurize instantly when released. This means any pressure higher then 29.4 psi will not flow more, it will flow longer. With pressure waves in the air it is similar. The energy put into the atmosphere can only dissipate at a set rate. Excess energy can not pass the barrier and remains until spent pushing the shock wave. Simply put, any pressure ratio higher then 2/1 will power the wave from behind. Increasing the range versus power ratio. [/quote]
Was looking at some video footage of the sonic boom that was recently happening in Russia with the incoming of a meteorite.
Some video showed windows imploded and a large rumbling with small gunfire like pops thereafter.
All of the vids I have seen from jets that have past the speed barrier and the booms happened don't take out windows and imploded shit 300Lm's away. Could this be more of an EMP?
