Dear student 
Ans is no ,
Explanation :
The formula is more or less accurate for Bohr's atomic model and will have slight deviations from the original value. The original value can’t be calculated with absolute certainty due to Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle.
Using the formula v = c.z/137.n
c= Speed of light
z= Atomic Number
n= Orbit
v=0.27c
which is less than c(speed of light)
