How to Calculate Shock strength of moving object?
Shock strength of moving object calculator uses Shock Strength = (2*Heat Capacity Ratio)/((Heat Capacity Ratio+1)*(Mach Number Radius^2-1)) to calculate the Shock Strength, The shock strength of moving object is the ratio of static pressure across the shock to the inlet static pressure. The strength of normal shock in a perfect gas depends only on the Mach number. Shock Strength is denoted by Δpp1_{ratio} symbol.
How to calculate Shock strength of moving object using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Shock strength of moving object, enter Heat Capacity Ratio (γ) & Mach Number Radius (M_{radius}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Shock strength of moving object calculation can be explained with given input values -> 1.215278 = (2*1.4)/((1.4+1)*(1.4^2-1)).
