## How to convert mach to speed of light (Ma to c)

The formula for converting mach to speed of light is: c = Ma × 0.0000011441. To calculate the mach value in speed of light first substitute the mach value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 mach in speed of light we follow these steps:

c = Ma × 0.0000011441

c = 1 × 0.0000011441

c = 0.0000011441

In other words, 1 mach is equal to 0.0000011441 speed of light.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 6 mach to speed of light is:

- Understand the conversion formula: c = Ma × 0.0000011441
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 6 for Ma so the formula becomes: c = 6 × 0.0000011441
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 6 × 0.0000011441 = 0.0000068646 c

In summary, 6 mach is equal to 0.0000068646 speed of light.

## Converting speed of light to mach

To convert from the light speed to Mach number (c to Ma) in a specific medium, you need to know the speed of sound (v) in that medium. The formula to calculate the Mach number for the speed of light, where the speed of sound is being measured in dry air at room temperature is below.### Step-by-step instructions: convert light speed to mach

**1. Determine the Speed of Sound (v) for the Medium of Interest:**You need to find the speed of sound in the specific medium you are interested in. The speed of sound varies depending on factors such as temperature, pressure, and the composition of the medium. For example, at room temperature (around 20°C or 68°F), the speed of sound in dry air is approximately 343m/s. Make sure you know the speed of sound in the particular medium you are dealing with.

**2. Plug in the Values:**Substitute the known values into the formula M = (3 × 10

^{8}m/s) ÷ v. Replace v with the speed of sound in the specific medium.

**3. Calculate the equivalent Mach Number for the Speed of Light value in question:**Perform the calculation to find the Mach number. For example, if the speed of sound in the medium is 343m/s (which is the speed of sound in dry air at room temperature), the Mach number for an object moving at the speed of light in this medium would be:M = (3 × 10

^{8}m/s) ÷ 343 m/s ≈ 874,317.91So, the object moving at the speed of light in dry air at room temperature would have a Mach number of approximately 874,318.This calculation assumes the object is traveling at the speed of light in the given medium. In reality, objects with mass cannot achieve the speed of light according to our current understanding of physics.
