How to Calculate Mach number?
Mach number calculator uses mach_no = Fluid Velocity/(sqrt(Specific Heat Ratio*Universal Gas Constant*Final Temp.)) to calculate the Mach Number, Mach number formula is defined as the ratio of velocity of flow after shock to the product of square root of the specific heat ratio, universal gas constant and temperature of fluid after shock. Mach Number and is denoted by M symbol.
How to calculate Mach number using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Mach number, enter Fluid Velocity (u_{f}), Specific Heat Ratio (γ), Universal Gas Constant (R) and Final Temp. (T_{f}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Mach number calculation can be explained with given input values -> 0.027418 = 1/(sqrt(1.6*8.314*100)).
