How to use "Mach number" in context?
Mach Number is a parameter used in fluid dynamics and aerodynamics, which describes the flow of fluids around a solid object. It is denoted by the Greek letter ÃŽÅ“ (m). It is named after the physicist Nicholas Mach and is measured in units of meters per second (m/s). When a fluid flows past a solid object, its speed is reduced due to the turbulence caused by the object. The reduction in speed is inversely proportional to the viscosity of the fluid.
