Abstract

Recently Stettbacher (see reference 5) calculated the temperature of a 'Munroe' jet to be about half a million degrees. This article presents a revised estimate of the temperature in a jet and it is shown that the temperature of the metal in the jet during its flight in air is of the order of several thousand degrees (approximately 5000degree). If, however, two 'fast' jets collide with each other, then there is a possibility of obtaining a temperature of 10/Sup6 to 10/Sup7 degrees.
