Question

An object is said to be moving at a supersonic speed when its speed is ____ the speed of sound in a medium.

  1. Less than
  2. Greater than
  3. Equal to
  4. Any of the above

hintHint:

An object is said to be moving at a supersonic speed when its speed is greater than the speed of sound in a medium.

The correct answer is: Greater than


    • A supersonic speed is the rate of speed that is more than the speed of sound.
    • When an object is said to be moving at a supersonic speed, it means it is moving faster than the speed of sound in a medium.
    • The speed of sound in a medium will be less than the supersonic movement of an object.
