## What is the speed of a bullet in mph?

An average bullet travels at around 2736 Kilometers/hour or 1700 miles/hour. That’s 6 times faster than the top speed of the fastest car in the world. Many bullets travel faster than the speed of sound. Bullets are 3 times faster than the commercial jet aircraft at about 400–500 knots.

**Does a bullet reach terminal velocity?**

30-caliber rifle bullets reached terminal velocity—the speed at which air resistance balances the accelerating force of gravity—at 300 feet per second. Lighter bullets, like those fired from a 9mm handgun, max out at even lower speeds, between 150 and 250 feet per second, according to computer models.

### How is bullet speed measured?

A ballistic chronograph or gun chronograph is a measuring instrument used to measure the velocity of a projectile in flight, typically fired from a gun.

**How many bullets does a AK 47 shoot per second?**

Built around a 7.62-mm round with a muzzle velocity of some 700 metres per second, it had a cyclic firing rate of 600 rounds per minute and was capable of both semiautomatic and automatic fire….How many bullets does a AK-47 shoot per second?

### How do I calculate terminal velocity?

To calculate terminal velocity:

- Multiply the mass of the object by the gravitational acceleration.
- Divide the resultant by the product of drag coefficient and projected area.
- Multiply the number in the previous step by 2.
- Divide the product by the density of fluid.

**What is gun velocity?**

Muzzle velocity is the speed of a projectile (bullet, pellet, slug, ball/shots or shell) with respect to the muzzle at the moment it leaves the end of a gun’s barrel (i.e. the muzzle). …

## HOW FAR CAN 7.62 x39 bullet travel?

7.62×39 does not have very good long range performance. It has a heavy bullet without enough powder and drops out of the sky like a wet rag. It’s most effective within 200 yards and beyond that rapidly loses effectiveness, with a maximum effective range of 400 yards.
