What is supersonic sound waves?

That's a sonic boom. Sound waves are never supersonic in themselves, objects can be supersonic ... which causes a pressure wave (which moves at "sonic" speeds) and which can be heard (firing a gun will do it).

What is the difference between ultrasonic and supersonic waves?

Ultrasonic waves are those, whose frequencies are above the frequency range of human ears (normally 20kHz). Whereas supersonic waves are those, which travel faster than sound, i.e. whose velocity is more than the velocity of sound waves.

What is a hartman generator?

A Hartmann generator is an electronic device that produces shock waves. It does this on the edge of a nozzle using a supersonic gas resonate.

Why can bat hear much higher sounds than humans?

bats can hear sounds of higher frequency than humans (supersonic) because they produce them and these sound waves echo back to them by bouncing of items so that they can see how far something is. Just like in submarines. therfore they need to 'hear' these 'supersonic' waves to see.
