How to Convert Speed Of Sound to Speed Of Light

conversion scale showing speed of sound and equivalent speed of light speed values

To convert a speed of sound measurement to a speed of light measurement, multiply the speed by the conversion ratio. One speed of sound is equal to 1.1441E-6 speed of light, so use this simple formula to convert:

speed of light = speed of sound × 1.1441E-6

The speed in speed of light is equal to the speed of sound multiplied by 1.1441E-6.

For example, here's how to convert 5 speed of sound to speed of light using the formula above.
5 sound = (5 × 1.1441E-6) = 5.7206E-6 c
