Question details

Shock waves 1Consider a stationary frame of reference in which a normal shock wave travels at a constant velocity of 500 m/s into quiescent air, where the undisturbed temperature and pressure are 300 K and 100 kPa, respectively. Calculate the following in the stationary frame of reference: (a) The static temperature and pressure downstream of the shock wave. [5 marks] (b) The air velocity downstream of the shock wave. [10 marks] (c) The total temperature and pressure downstream of the shock wave. [10 marks]
