How fast is 750 times the speed of light?

Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 750 times as fast as The Speed of Light.
In other words, the speed of The Speed of Light is 0.00133333333 times 750 times the speed of light.
(C) (in a vacuum)
The speed of light (and all other electromagnetic radiation) in a perfect vacuum is known as "c" and measures exactly 299,792,458 m/s, per the formal definition of the meter. While visible light travels close to this speed in air, it slows to 0.666666667 times the speed of light when passing through the glass of a typical window.
It's about 2,500,000 times as fast as a bolt of Lightning.
In other words, the speed of a bolt of Lightning is 0.00000043 times 750 times the speed of light.
(atmospheric electrical discharge)
It's about 5,500,000 times as fast as a Meteor.
In other words, the speed of a Meteor is 0.00000019 times 750 times the speed of light.
(formally Meteoroid or meteorite, depending on the context; a.k.a. "shooting star", a.k.a. "falling star")
It's about 30,000,000 times as fast as The Space Shuttle.
In other words, 750 times the speed of light is 29,036,000 times the speed of The Space Shuttle, and the speed of The Space Shuttle is 0.00000003444 times that amount.
(Orbiter vehicle velocity)
It's about 250,000,000 times as fast as a Bullet (Rifle).
In other words, 750 times the speed of light is 246,000,000 times the speed of a Bullet (Rifle), and the speed of a Bullet (Rifle) is 0.00000000407 times that amount.
(5.56 x 45 mm, a.k.a. 5.56 NATO)
It's about 350,000,000 times as fast as a Jet Fighter.
In other words, the speed of a Jet Fighter is 0.0000000029 times 750 times the speed of light.
(for Lockheed Martin F-16, a.k.a. Fighting Falcon, a.k.a. Viper) (maximum speed at altitude)
It's about 600,000,000 times as fast as a Bullet (Handgun).
In other words, 750 times the speed of light is 586,000,000 times the speed of a Bullet (Handgun), and the speed of a Bullet (Handgun) is 0.00000000171 times that amount.
(for .40 Smith & Wesson 135 grain Sierra JHP, VV 3N37 powder, Fed. 100 primer, Remington case) (muzzle velocity)
