Is there a formula for all the mach speeds?
Asked in Fighter Aircraft
How fast can a jet aircraft go?
conventional jet engines (using a compressor) will operate at speeds up to slightly less than Mach 1 using an afterburner a conventional jet engine can operate at speeds slightly above Mach 3 ramjet engines will operate at speeds up to about Mach 5 scramjet engines can operate at speeds well above Mach 6 However the maximum speed of of an actual airplane is usually less than the capability of the engines it uses.
How fast are air force jets?
Asked in Kinematics
How fast is mach 1.4 in mph?
There is no finite answer to this, since the term Mach (the speed of sound through air or water) changes based on the temperature of the air itself. In 60 deg F air at sea level, Mach 1 is 761mph. In dry air at 68 deg F, mach 1 is 768 mph. Mach 1.4 is 1.4 x these speeds. Usually Mach speeds are used for objects travelling in air, but not always. Mach 1 in water is 4.3 times faster than air and Mach 1 in iron is 15 times faster than air.
Asked in Speed of Sound
What is the speed lower than the speed of sound called?
Supersonic jets can travel faster than the speed of sound this is called Mach 1?
Close! Actually, Mach-1 is the speed of sound. anything above Mach-1 (Mach-(1-5)) is supersonic, all the way up to Mach-5, at which point an object is called "Hypersonic". Sometimes speeds above Mach-10 are referred to as "High-Hypersonic". So, a jet moving at Mach-1 wouldn't actually be traveling FASTER than sound, it would be traveling AS FAST as sound.
Asked in Physics, Airplanes and Aircraft
What is the fastest Mach speed a human can travel?
Answer "Mach speed" refers to the speed of sound in earth's atmosphere. Mach 1 is the the speed of sound, Mach 2 is twice that, and so forth. A human can travel at any Mach speed at all. Your question fails to specify whether or not surviving the experience is a requirement. Answer A human can travel at any Mach speed he/she wants. In orbit, the Space Shuttle travels at speeds well over Mach 30. It is the G-force which causes people to pass out. G-force is caused due to acceleration, not speed. A force of 5G can make a fit person pass out.

How many decibels are required for sound to travel in a vacuum?
How fast can a fighter plane go?
Different fighter planes have different capabilities, but somewhere between Mach 1 (the speed of sound) and Mach 3 (three times the speed of sound) has been the general norm for fighter planes in the last five decades. Fighter-bombers are capable of supersonic speeds above Mach 1, but fighter-interceptors can do about Mach 2.5.

What do mach speeds have to do with sound?
When something is traveling at the speed of sound, 343 m/s, it is said to be traveling at mach 1. When traveling at twice the speed of sound it is traveling at mach 2 and so on. Wikipedia.org, 'The World's Encyclopedia' has an entire article on Mack Number. Refer to the related link in the Related Links section below.
Asked in Top Speeds
What is the top speed of a fighter jet?
MiG-21 ( Russian ) Mach 2 .. 1960 versions MiG-21 ( Russian ) Mach 2+.. 1970-1980 versions MiG-25 ( Russia ) Mach 2.5.. 1965 ( Can go Mach 3+ but engine will explode ) MiG-31 ( Russia ) Mach 2.7.. 1971 F-16/F-15 ( USA ) Mach 2 .. 1980 versions F-16/F-15 ( USA ) Mach 2+.. 1990-2000 versions Dogfight average flight speeds : Mach 0.5 to Mach 1.2 In Flight training : Mach 1 + Mach 1 is = 1236 km/hr Most modern Fighter Jets can speed beyond Mach 1.7. For an Exotic read "The AURORA Program" sees the stealth aircraft evidence supporting Mach 8 and beyond. It would depend on the jet itself. Each jet has a different engine (thrust production), weight, lift and drag component which all effect the top speed of fighter jets. For example the f18 hornet has a top speed of mach 1.8 (1190 kph) whilst the yet the mig 35 can get to mach 2.25(2400 kph)
