Info about "Speed of sound"

Definition: If an object travels at the speed of sound in air at 20 degrees Celsius for one second, it travels a distance of 343 meters per second. Actually, it is equivalent to 1.234,8 km/h.

The speed of sound is often illustrated by an example of a thunderstorm: if lightning strikes within 3 seconds of the thunder sound, then the thunderstorm is about 1 kilometer away. Another example, in a 100-meter sprint, the starting shot is fired directly next to the starting blocks. Imagine, if the start shot was fired at the finish line, it would take about 0.3 seconds of time to hear the shot in the start blocks.

Info about "Miles per second"

The length unit "mile" is commonly used in the Anglo-American countries, where speeds are represented in miles (instead of kilometers) per time unit and it should not be confused sea mile.

The units are defined as follows: An object moving at 1 "mph" per hour will cover a distance of one mile. Therefore, 1 mile is equivalent to 1.609344 kilometers.
