- Homework Statement
- When a vibrating source moves through a medium with speed V, speed of propagation of wave is v. A conical wavefront is set up independent of time. What happens when the source is not vibrating?
- Homework Equations
- Sin(theta) = v/V
So when the source is not vibrating, it is not setting waves due to vibration? But it is moving so it is still causing disturbance in the medium .... And I happened to read that if the source is moving faster than the speed of sound, a shock wave is set up. How ?
