# Velocity of sound in air Calculator

## Calculates the speed of sound in air.

 Temperature T ℃ Heat capacity ratio k air:1.403, He:1.66 Molecular mass M g/mol  air:28.966, He:4 Velocity of sound c m/s = km/h = kn
 At 15 degrees C, the velocity of sound is about 340 m/s in air and 997 m/s in helium gas.$\normal\hspace{40}c=\sqrt{\large\frac{kRT}{M}}\\[10]\ heat\ capacity\ ratio\ (air)\hspace{5}k=1.403\\\ molecular mass\ (air)\hspace{10}M=0.028966kg/mol\\\ gas\ constant\hspace{67}R=8.314472\\\ absolute\ temperature\hspace{5}T=273.15+t^{\circ}C\\$
