For the same reason, the width of all two-dimensional nozzles is assumed to be identical to the divergent axial length. This restriction is, of course, of no consequence if the user inputs the divergent half angle directly. extra specifications are added As the nozzle for supersonic subroutine now nozzle divergence stands, three calculations.

They are: the nozzle divergence half angle, the divergent axial length (which, in addition to the known throat and exit areas, allows the alternate method for the calculation of the divergence half angle), and a geometry type switch.
