Speed of Radio Waves
Radio waves are generally produced by moving charged particles. They have frequencies as low as 30 hertz or as high as 300 gigahertz.
Radio waves are generated by transmitters and received by receivers using antennas. In a vacuum, radio waves can travel at the speed of light, i.e., 299,792,458 meters per second.
Speed of a Bullet Train
The first bullet train line was launched in Japan and the line connected Tokyo to Osaka, one of about 340 miles. The trip was of about two and a half hours and had a maximum speed of 150 –200 mph.
Speed of a F1 Racecar
F1 Race Cars have been one of the fastest race cars for years now and they can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in less than 2 seconds. Although the F1 cars are fast, their development and improvements are done slowly and steadily.
A modern F1 race car can rev up to 18,000 RPM and 750 HP or more.
The F1 race car can travel up to 212 mph
Speed of a Racehorse.
Horse racing has been an entertaining event for many centuries now. It was and still is a competitive event for humans. People place bets and some even fix races to earn some money with horse racing.
The average speed at which a horse gallops is around 48.2 kilometers per hour(43.97 miles per hour). However, the fastest racehorse in the Guinness Book of Records has a top speed of 70.76 kilometers per hour(43.97 miles per hour).
Speed of a Cheetah
Cheetah is one of the fastest land animals on Earth. You might be curious to know how fast it can run. A human cannot beat a cheetah unless they go head to head in a long run.
Cheetahs sneak up on their prey and sprint to attack them. They do so at speeds as high as 75 mph or 120 km/hr. The top speed may also range between 65 and 75 mph but has an average speed of only 40 mph. It also accelerates from 0 to 60 in 3 seconds or reaches up to 47 mph in two seconds.
However, it runs at such high speeds only in short bursts.
Speed of a Human
It only seems fair to include the speed of a human when we talk about the speed of everything else.
Usain Bolt is considered one of the fastest humans on the planet and he has clocked about 27mph in his 100 sprints. Although it is not fast enough to beat a cheetah, it is enough to outrun other animals.
In theory, humans should be able to run as fast as 35-40 mph, based on the strength of muscles, capacity, and various other factors.
