Enter the Mach number into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Mach Angle. 

Mach Angle Formula

MA = ASIN ( 1/ M) *57.2958


  • MA is the Mach Angle (degrees)
  • M is the Mach number

To calculate Mach Angle, take the inverse sine of the ratio of 1 over the Mach number.

How to Calculate Mach Angle?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Mach Angle.

  1. First, determine the Mach number. 
  2. Next, gather the formula from above = MA = ASIN ( 1/ M) *57.2958.
  3. Finally, calculate the Mach Angle.
  4. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
