What is Meant by the Mach Number?
In Physics, Mach number is a dimensionless quantity. It is defined as the ratio of flow velocity and speed of sound in the surrounding medium. The Mach number formula is given by:
Mach Number, M = u/c
“u” is the local flow velocity
“c” is the speed of sound in the medium
The Mach number can be classified into different types, namely
- Re-entry speeds
