How to Calculate Deflection angle?
Deflection angle calculator uses deflection angle=(2/(Specific Heat Ratio-1))*((1/Mach Number ahead of shock)-(1/Mach Number behind shock)) to calculate the deflection angle, Deflection angle is the product of inverse of specific heat ratio minus 1 and double the inverse change in velocity of flow usually in mach number. deflection angle and is denoted by θ symbol.
How to calculate Deflection angle using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Deflection angle, enter Specific Heat Ratio (γ), Mach Number ahead of shock (M_{1}) and Mach Number behind shock (M_{2}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Deflection angle calculation can be explained with given input values -> -4.444444 = (2/(1.6-1))*((1/1.5)-(1/0.5)).
