How to Calculate Mach wave behind the shock?
Mach wave behind the shock calculator uses Mach Number behind shock=(Freestream Velocity-local shock velocity)/Speed of Sound to calculate the Mach Number behind shock, The Mach wave behind the shock formula is defined as the ratio of freestream velocity minus the local shock velocity to the speed of sound. Mach Number behind shock and is denoted by M_{2} symbol.
How to calculate Mach wave behind the shock using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Mach wave behind the shock, enter Freestream Velocity (V_{∞}), local shock velocity (W) and Speed of Sound (𝒶) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Mach wave behind the shock calculation can be explained with given input values -> -9 = (100-1000)/100.
