Question: consider the flow depicted below the pitot tube inserted in...

Question details

Consider the flow depicted below. The Pitot tube inserted in the flow measures a total pressure of 2.6 atm. At point a the static pressure is 0.1 atm. Calculate the free stream Mach number assuming that Y-1.5, Cp-1000 (J/kg°C) and R 280 (J/kg°C). Assume that the gas is an ideal gas. For solving the problem write down all the equation that you are using. Do not miss any equation if you want partial credits. Pitot tube 4 M, 15° 15°
