Q:

What is the difference between acoustic waves, subsonic waves, and supersonic waves?

A:

Acoustic waves are sound waves, meaning they travel at the speed of sound by compressing and decompressing the medium they travel through. A subsonic wave travels slower than the speed of sound, and supersonic travels faster than the speed of sound. The main difference between the waves is just the speed.
