Mach Angle Calculations


This form calculates the Mach Angle for a supersonic air flow. This is the angle of the minimal oblique wave that is created by a small disturbance in the air flow. The required input is the Mach number of the upstream flow. The result is independent of the gas used.
Inputs
Upstream Mach Number (M1)
