Supersonic air encounters the wedge shape shown below.
a) Calculate the wave angle at the onset of face A and the normal free-stream Mach number
b) Calculate the Mach numbers, Prandtl-Meyer functions and pressures on faces A, B and C.
Assume inviscid flow and that the air behaves as a perfect gas. Let 𝛾 = 1.4.
