FAQ

What is Speed of Sound?
The speed of sound is defined as the dynamic propagation of sound waves and depends on the characteristics of the medium through which the propagation takes place and is represented as 𝒶=sqrt(γ*[R-Dry-Air]*T) or Speed of Sound=sqrt(Specific Heat Ratio*[R-Dry-Air]*Temperature of Gas). The Specific heat ratio of a gas is the ratio of the specific heat of the gas at a constant pressure to its specific heat at a constant volume and The temperature of Gas is the measure of hotness or coldness of a gas.
How to calculate Speed of Sound?
The speed of sound is defined as the dynamic propagation of sound waves and depends on the characteristics of the medium through which the propagation takes place is calculated using Speed of Sound=sqrt(Specific Heat Ratio*[R-Dry-Air]*Temperature of Gas). To calculate Speed of Sound, you need Specific Heat Ratio (γ) and Temperature of Gas (T). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Specific Heat Ratio and Temperature of Gas and hit the calculate button. You can also select the units (if any) for Input(s) and the Output as well.
