How to Calculate Critical Density?
Critical Density calculator uses Critical density=Stagnation density *(2/(Specific heat ratio+1))^(1/(Specific heat ratio-1)) to calculate the Critical density, The Critical density at a point in a fluid flow is defined as the density that would exist if the flow becomes sonic at that point. Critical density and is denoted by p* symbol.
How to calculate Critical Density using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Critical Density, enter Stagnation density (Po) and Specific heat ratio (κ) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Critical Density calculation can be explained with given input values -> 0.633488 = 1*(2/(1.392758+1))^(1/(1.392758-1)).
