1128 CHAPTER 8. ONE-DIMENSIONAL COMPRESSIBLE FLOW 8.8 Chapter 8, Problem 8 Problem: According to the U. S. Standard Atmosphere, the temperature in the at- mosphere is T = T a α z ,wh e r e α = 6.50 K/km, z is altitude and T a is surface temperature. On a day when T a =20 o C, a missile flies at Mach 0.6. Determine its speed in m/sec if it is flying at z =50 manda t z =3 km. Solution: At an altitude of 50 m , the temperature is T =293 . 15 K (6 . 50 K / km)(0 . 05 km) = 292 . 8K Then, the speed of sound is a = ± γ RT = ± 1 . 4[287 J
