Breaking the "sound barrier" causes a shock wave in the air that may be perceived by those on the ground as a sonic boom.
Breaking the Sound Barrier won the Oscar for Sound in 1952.
It was referred to as breaking the sound barrier.
The sound barrier is a term associated with the speed of sound in air. In that light, breaking the sound barrier is done with speed and not with a loud (many decibel) sound. We don't see anyone breaking the sound barrier by exceeding "x" number of decibels, but by exceeding the speed of sound in air.The speed of sound in air is about 343 meters per second, which is about 1,126 feet per second. That's about 1,236 kilometres per hour, or about 768 miles per hour. To break the sound barrier, a speedster would have to be moving faster than that figure. And because of the shock waves that the vehicle would have to pass through when breaking the sound barrier, that speedster would probably "feel" vibrations in the vehicle when passing through the sound barrier.
he did this by breaking the sound barrier (also known asthe sound of speed)
The noise results from the tip of the whip breaking the sound barrier.

Breaking the sound barrier means that an object is moving faster than the velocity of sound. The speed of sound is 343 meters per second or 1,125 feet/second. When an object moves just below the speed of sound the sound it makes builds up preassure waves. When it reaches the speed of sound these pressure waves can not compress any more. They effectively create a "Wall of Air." "Breaking the sound barrier" means that an object has enough force to push through this barrier. Once this has been accomplished sound waves no longer build up in front of the object.
The F-86 Canadair Saber is breaking the sound barrier at supersonic speed.
Breaking of the sound barrier unless subsonic ammunition is used is one.
Because breaking the sound barrier requires exceeding the speed of sound. The speed of sound is approximately 761 miles per hour at seal level at an the air temperature of 59 degrees Fahrenheit.

Yes. Some vehicles such as the ThrustSSC can go faster than the speed of sound, breaking the sound barrier causing the "sonic boom."
It is the adjective form of sound, although it is sometimes used as a synonym for something very fast (breaking the speed barrier). It is also the name of the video game character, Sonic the Hedgehog.
The duration of The Sound Barrier is 1.97 hours.

Breaking the sound barrier was an important milestone because it meant that various technical challenges of flying at high speed had been mastered. The Bell X-1, like other aircraft would buffet greatly, malfunction or explode as they approached the sound barrier. The Bell X-1 was the first known aircraft able to successfully fly in level flight at Mach I which is term for the speed of sound. This achievement is considered by many to be the first step of the Space Age.
When chuck Yeager broke the sound barrier he proved that it was possible to go faster than sound. Also because of him we have satellite TV. , some cellphones, computers, weather reports and more. Plus we can now go into outer space.
"Breaking the sound barrier" means that you go faster than the speed of sound. The speed of sound varies depending on various circumstances; in air, it is typically about 340 meters per second.
Exceeding the sound barrier refers to speed of travel, not loudness of sound. A speaker cannot "exceed the sound barrier".
