This lesson covers the concept of one-dimensional compressible flows, focusing on the properties and governing equations of these flows. It explains the meaning of one-dimensional flow, where flow properties change only along the flow direction and the velocity component along the flow direction alone is non-zero. The lesson also discusses the continuity equation or mass conservation equation and the momentum equation. It further elaborates on the concept of wave-like solutions in compressible flows, such as sound waves and normal shocks, and their implications in practical applications like nozzle flows and turbo missionary blade passages. The lesson concludes with the derivation of the expression for the speed of sound in a compressible medium.
