1180 CHAPTER 8. ONE-DIMENSIONAL COMPRESSIBLE FLOW 8.48 Chapter 8, Problem 48 Problem: A compressed gas reservoir has a nozzle attached. There is a normal shock downstream of the nozzle throat. The Mach number of the stream emanating from the nozzle is M = 0 . 48 and the pressure is p = 101 kPa. Also, the gas temperature is T t = 300 K in the reservoir. Determine the density in the reservoir, ρ t , for air and for helium ( γ = 5 3 ). HINT: To simplify your calculations, express Mach numbers in this problem to two significant figures. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . T = 300 K ρ =? M = 0 . 48 p = 101 kPa . . . . . . . . Solution: To solve, we note that the temperature in the reservoir is the total temperature, T t , which is constant throughout the flow. Also, the pressure in the reservoir is the total pressure, p t , so that once we find its value we can use the perfect-gas law to find the density of the gas in the reservoir. Our solution procedure will be as follows: 1. Use the normal-shock relations to compute M 1 and p 2 /p 1 for the given M 2 ; 2. Use the isentropic-flow relations to find p 1 /p t

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
