Mach Number Calculator by Mohit Kudal

Mach number is the ratio of velocity of object and speed of sound.

Mach number is categorized by its value:-

M<0.8 Subsonic

0.8<M<1.2 Transonic

M=1 – Sonic

M>1 Supersonic

M>5 Hypersonic

M = V/a

M is the local Mach number,

V is the local flow velocity with respect to the boundaries (either internal, such as an object immersed in the flow, or external, like a channel),

a is the speed of sound in the medium, which in air varies with the square root of the thermodynamic temperature.

Mach number (M or Ma) is a dimensionless quantity in fluid dynamics representing the ratio of flow velocity past a boundary to the local speed of sound – WIKIPEDIA
