Homework Help: Shock wave experiment

  1. Mar 3, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Anyone know of any experiments I can do show demonstrate a shock wave or supersonics flow ?

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Closest thing I can think of is whipping a whip, because the end moves supersonic
