How to convert feet per second to mach (ft/s to Ma)
The formula for converting feet per second to mach is: Ma = ft/s × 0.000889. To calculate the foot per second value in mach first substitute the foot per second value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 foot per second in mach we follow these steps:
Ma = ft/s × 0.000889
Ma = 1 × 0.000889
Ma = 0.000889
In other words, 1 foot per second is equal to 0.000889 mach.
Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 8 feet per second to mach is:
- Understand the conversion formula: Ma = ft/s × 0.000889
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 8 for ft/s so the formula becomes: Ma = 8 × 0.000889
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 8 × 0.000889 = 0.007112 Ma
In summary, 8 feet per second is equal to 0.007112 mach.
Converting mach to feet per second
In order to convert the other way around i.e. mach to feet per second, you would use the following formula: ft/s = Ma × 1124.85939257593. To convert mach to feet per second first substitute the mach value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 mach in feet per second we follow these steps:
ft/s = Ma × 1124.85939257593
ft/s = 1 × 1124.85939257593
ft/s = 1124.85939257593
Or in other words, 1 mach is equal to 1124.85939257593 feet per second.
