The exact solutions to the equations of gas dynamics are given with respect to the axis of slender lifting bodies in a stratified atmosphere. The boundary condition is satisfied by using slender-body theory. The solution predicts the magnitude of the pressure rise of the sonic boom and estimates the nonlinear effects in the vicinity of the cutoff point.
