This lesson covers the concept of normal shock waves and mark waves in the context of compressible flow. It delves into the hypothetical state changes of a compressible flow, the characteristic mach number, and the concept of stagnation conditions. The lesson also introduces the energy equation from a calorically perfect point of view. It further discusses the concept of isentropic slowdown and the impact of a normal shock on mach number, density, velocity, pressure, temperature, and enthalpy. The lesson concludes with an introduction to mark waves and oblique shock waves. For instance, it explains how a supersonic flow becomes subsonic on crossing a normal shock.
