## How to Convert Speed of Light to Speed of Sound

To convert a measurement in speed of light to a measurement in speed of sound, multiply the speed by the following conversion ratio: 874,030.489796 speed of sound/speed of light.

Since one speed of light is equal to 874,030.489796 speed of sound, you can use this simple formula to convert:

speed of sound = speed of light × 874,030.489796

The speed in speed of sound is equal to the speed in speed of light multiplied by 874,030.489796.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 speed of light to speed of sound using the formula above.

Speed of light and speed of sound are both units used to measure speed. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## What Is the Speed of Light?
