How fast is the sonic boom?


1 Answer

741 miles per hour at sea level. It varies slightly due to the density of the atmosphere. That is the speed of sound. When something that creates a lot of noise is traveling at that speed, the sound waves bunch up and arrive at the listeners location in a large noisy boom.
