# 2.39 Air upstream of a normal shock has the following properties: Pt = 100 psia, Tt = 100 F, and M=2.

Find
the upstream static temperature, static pressure, and velocity (ft/s). Find the downstream total temperature,
Mach number, total pressure, static temperature, static pressure, and velocity (ft/s).

P1 = 12.78 psia

We could have instead used the equation from class, and still get the same answer

Velocity comes from definition of total temperature, as rewritten on p. 124, eqn (v)

V1 = lbf s2

V 1 = 1729.46 ft s

The downstream temperature is the same as that of the upstream temperature, because the flow is adiabatic
Tt2 = Tt1 = 560 R

We can use the equation for Mach number presented on the website

## Using normal shock table posted on the website,

M1 = 2 fl M2 = 0.5774

## So we've confirmed our answer.

There is also an equation for stagnation pressures on the website

J g+1 M1 2 - g+1 N g-1

P02 Pt2
From the table, we confirm that P01
= Pt1
= 0.7209

Pt2 = 72.09 psia

## The equation for pressures is

p2 M2 T2 1+gM21
= = = 4.500
p1 M1 T1 1+gM22

P2
The table again confirms that P1
= 4.500

P2 = 57.51 psia

## Once again, we find the right equition

g-1
T2 1+ M12
T1
= 2
g-1 = 1.687
1+ 2
M22

T2
And, the table affirms T1
= 1.687

T2 = 524.84 R
