Question 5. Going back to the sound experiment, can you explain why the sound was louder sometimes and quieter at other times, even though the two sources have the same

frequency? Use the concepts of superposition, interference, and phase difference in your answer. h) As a last example of superposition let's look at a simulation of a sonic boom (the extremely loud sound made by jets or meteors when they travel faster than the speed of sound). Open and select 'Example: Sonic Boom.' If you have trouble getting the program to run properly, try lowering the simulation speed and/or the resolution.
