    barrier is broken, then a lot changes and the aircraft needs to be as streamlined to do that. To make an engine more streamlined it becomes smaller and more part of the wing of the plane. The engine might be smaller but it has to move more air than a subsonic engine which means the rate at which the engine rotates will be higher, increasing the noise. With hearing protection this might not be a huge deal, but for people who live close to an airport and have to listen to lift off and landing might be cause for complaint. Another problem with noise is a sonic boom. When a supersonic jet exceeds 767 miles per hour they create a sonic boom which is exactly what it sounds like a very loud boom. Even with the plane fly over 35,000 feet above us this boom is extremely loud. The boom from the sonic boom is not the only problem as the plane exceeds the sound barrier. When the sound barrier is broken many things happen, there is the boom that was just talked about, a shock wave is created, temperature around the plane increases, and the most well know trait a vapor cloud appears around the aircraft. Temperature is an issue for supersonic travel because the heat around the plane is well over the boiling temperature of 212 degrees Fahrenheit. Normal subsonic planes use aluminum as the material for the outside of the plane. Aluminum is lightweight, strong, and relatively inexpensive. Aluminum however, does not do well against heat, therefore manufacturers have to use materials…

  • Fossils Chapter Summary

    that the fingers on the side blocked from the ZPA did not create, or created malformed, fingers which proves that something from the ZPA controls the construction of limbs. This molecule was discovered in 1993 by Cliff Tabin’s laboratory at Harvard by using fruit flies. Fruit flies have a gene that controls which side grows into what shape called a hedgehog. With the shape of the gene from the fruit flies, the lab began to search for the same or similar gene in chickens. The chicken version of…

  • Boca Burger Observation

    I am a proud Food Network addict. And lately, I have developed quite a fondness for the reality competition, "Chopped." On this show, four "amateur" chefs compete for $10,000. They are provided with a motley collection of specific ingredients, and are charged with creating an appetizer, entrée, and a dessert; one contestant is eliminated after each course. The chefs are provided all the supplies and ingredients they need to prepare their dishes, while the judges look on. The clock winds down,…

However, this momentum reversed following the end of World War II, as the government implemented policies that heavily favored the resurgent of white men returning from war such as the GI Bill and the discontinuation of the OPA. Congress’ decision to reject the continuation of the OPA in 1946, which women were heavily in favor of keeping in place, was “a slap in the face to the tens of…

  • Concorde: History And Characteristics

    Normally, when a plane is flying through the air, it has to push the air out of the way and fly through the space left. However, the Concorde flying at the speed of sound, so flying faster than the air cannot push the air out of the way in time. As a result, air pressure hits the wings because it cannot move away fast enough. This creates a cone of compressed air that protrudes out form the nose of the plane. Now if a person would stand close enough to where this would happen then the person…

  • Supersonic Essay

    As a result, higher cost will be imposed in the necessity to maintain a supersonic aircraft to ensure its air-worthiness. Due to supersonic aircrafts jet, or ramjet engines, the fuel consumption is higher as compared to subsonic aircrafts. So once again, increased fuel consumption leads to higher cost. The most infamous disadvantage is the sonic boom. It is when an aircraft breaches the sound barrier. Air molecules are pushed away from the aircraft when it is supersonic. This motion forms a…

    when I heard some racket in the woods behind me. I slowly turned my head careful not to make any sudden movements to see what was making the noise.

Breathe slowly and gently squeeze the trigger, BOOM the gun went off. I tried to look through the smoke as it cleared to see where she went and then I saw her on the edge of the green field. I was…
