## How to convert

1 mach (M) = 2041700 centimeter per minute (cm/min). Mach (M) is a unit of Speed used in Metric system. Centimeter Per Minute (cm/min) is a unit of Speed used in Metric system.

## Definition of Mach

Mach, commonly denoted 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. It is named after the Austrian physicist and philosopher Ernst Mach, who studied gas dynamics and shock waves. Mach number is used to classify the flow regimes based on the effects of compressibility and shock waves on the flow.

## How to Convert Mach

To convert mach to other units of speed, we need to multiply by the local speed of sound in the medium, which depends on the temperature and pressure of the gas. For example, to convert mach to meters per second, we need to multiply by the speed of sound in air at sea level, which is about 340 m/s. To convert mach to kilometers per hour, we need to multiply by the speed of sound in air at sea level and by 3.6, since there are 3.6 seconds in one hour.

Here are some examples of how to convert mach to other units of length in the US Standard system and the SI system:

• To convert 1 M to meters per second (m/s), we multiply by 340: 1 M x 340 = 340 m/s
• To convert 2 M to kilometers per hour (km/h), we multiply by 340 and by 3.6: 2 M x 340 x 3.6 = 2448 km/h
• To convert 3 M to miles per hour (mph), we multiply by 340 and by 2.2369362920544, since there are 2.2369362920544 miles in one kilometer: 3 M x 340 x 2.2369362920544 = 2285.714285714 mph
• To convert 4 M to feet per second (fps), we multiply by 340 and by 3.2808398950131, since there are 3.2808398950131 feet in one meter: 4 M x 340 x 3.2808398950131 = 4465.306122449 fps
• To convert 5 M to knots (kn), we multiply by 340 and by 1.9438444924406, since there are 1.9438444924406 nautical miles in one kilometer: 5 M x 340 x 1.9438444924406 = 3316.326530612 kn
• To convert 6 M to centimeters per second (cm/s), we multiply by 340 and by 100, since there are 100 centimeters in one meter: 6 M x 340 x 100 = 204000 cm/s

## Where Mach Is Used

Mach is used in various fields of science and technology where the speed and direction of movement of objects or phenomena are measured or applied in relation to the speed of sound in the medium. For example:

• In aerodynamics and aeronautics, mach is used to measure the speed and performance of aircraft, rockets, missiles, and other flying vehicles, as well as the effects of air resistance, drag, lift, and thrust on them.
• In acoustics and sound engineering, mach is used to measure the intensity and frequency of sound waves, as well as the effects of reflection, refraction, diffraction, interference, and Doppler shift on them.
• In meteorology and climatology, mach is used to measure the speed and direction of wind, storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, and other weather phenomena, as well as the effects of temperature, pressure, humidity, and density on them.

## History of Mach

The concept of mach number was first introduced by Swiss engineer Jakob Ackeret in his doctoral thesis in 1929. He proposed it as a convenient way to express the ratio of flow velocity to speed of sound in gas dynamics problems. He also named it after Ernst Mach, who had conducted experiments on supersonic projectiles and shock waves in the late nineteenth century.

The term mach number was later popularized by German-American engineer Theodore von Karman, who used it extensively in his research on aerodynamics and supersonic flight in the early twentieth century. He also established the first supersonic wind tunnel at Caltech in 1939.

The first human-made object to break the sound barrier was a rocket-powered plane called Bell X-1 piloted by Chuck Yeager in October 1947. He achieved a speed of about Mach 1.06 at an altitude of 13,000 meters.
The first human to travel faster than sound was Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, who orbited the Earth at a speed of about Mach 25 in April 1961.
The fastest manned aircraft ever flown was the North American X-15, which reached a speed of about Mach 6.7 in October 1967.

The fastest unmanned aircraft ever flown was the NASA X-43A, which reached a speed of about Mach 9.6 in November 2004.

• To convert 6 M to centimeters per second, we multiply by 340 and by 100: 6 M x 340 x 100 = 204000 cm/s
• To convert 7 M to millimeters per minute, we multiply by 340 and by 1000, since there are 1000 millimeters in one meter, and multiply by 60, since there are 60 minutes in one hour: 7 M x 340 x 1000 x 60 = 142800000 mm/min
Mach speed can be marked as Ma and Mach number. At Standard Sea Level conditions (temperature of 15 degrees Celsius), the speed of sound = 1 Mach = 340.3 m/s (1225 km/h, or 761.2 mph, or 661.5 knots, or 1116 ft/s).

## Centimeters per minute: A unit of speed

Centimeters per minute (cm/min) is a unit of speed or velocity in the International System of Units (SI). It measures how fast an object is moving by calculating the distance traveled in centimeters divided by the time taken in minutes. For example, if a snail travels 6 centimeters in 3 minutes, its speed is 2 cm/min.

## How to convert centimeters per minute

Centimeters per minute can be converted to other units of speed or velocity by using simple conversion factors. Here are some common units and their conversion factors:

• Meters per second (m/s): To convert from cm/min to m/s, divide by 6000. To convert from m/s to cm/min, multiply by 6000. For example, 1 cm/min is equal to 0.000166667 m/s, and 10 m/s is equal to 60000 cm/min.
• Kilometers per hour (km/h): To convert from cm/min to km/h, divide by 100000. To convert from km/h to cm/min, multiply by 100000. For example, 1 cm/min is equal to 0.0006 km/h, and 50 km/h is equal to 833333.333 cm/min.
• Miles per hour (mph): To convert from cm/min to mph, multiply by 0.000372823. To convert from mph to cm/min, divide by 0.000372823. For example, 1 cm/min is equal to 0.000372823 mph, and 30 mph is equal to 80467.2 cm/min.
• Knots (kn): To convert from cm/min to kn, multiply by 0.000323974. To convert from kn to cm/min, divide by 0.000323974. For example, 1 cm/min is equal to 0.000323974 kn, and 15 kn is equal to 46296.296 cm/min.
• Feet per minute (ft/min): To convert from cm/min to ft/min, divide by 30.48. To convert from ft/min to cm/min, multiply by 30.48. For example, 1 cm/min is equal to 0.0328084 ft/min, and 10 ft/min is equal to 304.8 cm/min.
• Inches per minute (in/min): To convert from cm/min to in/min, divide by 2.54. To convert from in/min to cm/min, multiply by 2.54. For example, 1 cm/min is equal to 0.393701 in/min, and 20 in/min is equal to 50.8 cm/min.

## Where centimeters per minute are used

Centimeters per minute are mainly used in science and engineering to measure the flow rate of fluids and gases.

For example, the standard cubic centimeter per minute (SCCM) is a unit used to quantify the flow rate of a fluid at standard conditions of temperature and pressure.

The flow rate of blood through a capillary is often measured in centimeters per minute.

The flow rate of air through a wind tunnel is often measured in centimeters per second, which is equivalent to centimeters per minute divided by 60.

## Definition of centimeters per minute

According to the SI definition, one centimeter per minute is the speed of a body that covers a distance of one centimeter in a time of one minute.

Mathematically, it can be expressed as:

where v is the speed or velocity in centimeters per minute, s is the distance traveled in centimeters, and t is the time taken in minutes.

## History of centimeters per minute

The concept of speed or velocity has been studied since ancient times by philosophers and scientists such as Aristotle, Galileo, Newton, etc.

The centimeter was originally derived from the French centimeter which was defined as one hundredth of a meter.

The meter was originally derived from the French meter which was defined as one ten-millionth of the distance from the equator to the North Pole.

The minute was originally derived from the Babylonian sexagesimal system which divided an hour into sixty minutes.

The combination of these two units resulted in the centimeter per minute as a unit of speed or velocity.

The centimeter per minute was officially adopted as part of the SI system in 1960.
