 It's about five-and-a-half times as fast as an Arrow (archery) In other words, 486.180 meters per second is 5.422 times the speed of an Arrow (archery), and the speed of an Arrow (archery) is 0.1844 times that amount. (250 g arrow fired from 60#/28" bow)A 250 gram arrow will reach speeds of approximately 89.670 meters per second when fired from a 60-lb, 28-inch draw bow . Archeological evidence from the Ahrensburg valley near Hamburg, Germany indicates that arrows have been used since at least 11 to 12,000 years ago. It's about five-and-a-half times as fast as a Lamborghini Gallardo In other words, 486.180 meters per second is 5.5 times the speed of a Lamborghini Gallardo, and the speed of a Lamborghini Gallardo is 0.18 times that amount. (for Gallardo LP 550-2, a.k.a. Valentino Balboni, 2009 model)The Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 model Gallardo has a top speed of 89 meters per second. The Gallardo can reach speeds of 28 meters per second in just 3.9 seconds. It's about five-and-a-half times as fast as The TGV (train) In other words, 486.180 meters per second is 5.5 times the speed of The TGV (train), and the speed of The TGV (train) is 0.18 times that amount. (Train à Grande Vitesse) (for SNCF TGV Réseau, a.k.a. "Network" model, a.k.a. TGV-R) (maximum speed)The TGV Réseau sets have a top speed of 89 meters per second. The train is capable of travelling the 425 km (264 mi) distance from Paris to Lyon in East-Central France in about two hours. It's about six times as fast as a Helicopter In other words, 486.180 meters per second is 6.16 times the speed of a Helicopter, and the speed of a Helicopter is 0.162 times that amount. (for AH-64A Apache, a.k.a. Hughes Model 77) (maximum cruise speed)The AH-64 helicopter, one of the primary helicopters used by the United States Army, flies at a top cruise speed of 78.90 meters per second. The AH-64 is the primary military helicopter of several nations including the United States, the United Kingdom, Israel, Japan, and the Netherlands. It's about seven times as fast as a Skydiver (headfirst) In other words, 486.180 meters per second is 6.8 times the speed of a Skydiver (headfirst), and the speed of a Skydiver (headfirst) is 0.15 times that amount. (Head-to-Earth orientation or standing, average conditions, terminal velocity)A head-to-Earth or standing-oriented skydiver's terminal velocity assuming average conditions is about 72 meters per second. In a typical jump from 3,900 m (13,000 ft), a diver in this orientation will be in freefall for 46 seconds. It's about nine times as fast as a Tornado In other words, 486.180 meters per second is 8.806103 times the speed of a Tornado, and the speed of a Tornado is 0.1135576 times that amount. (EF2) (wind speed range average)According to the Enhanced Fujita scale implemented by the US National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, a "significant" tornado has an Enhanced Funjita scale classification of EF2 and is characterized by wind gust speeds between 49.17440 meters per second and 61.244480 meters per second. The largest recorded tornado — an F4 event occurring in Nebraska in May, 2004 — was almost 4.02 km (2.5 mi) across. It's about nine times as fast as a Skydiver (belly-to-earth) In other words, 486.180 meters per second is 9.2 times the speed of a Skydiver (belly-to-earth), and the speed of a Skydiver (belly-to-earth) is 0.11 times that amount. (Belly-to-Earth orientation, average conditions, terminal velocity)A belly-to-Earth oriented skydiver's terminal velocity is about 53 meters per second. In a typical jump from 3,900 m (13,000 ft), a diver in this orientation will be in freefall for 60 seconds.
