6. An oblique shock generated at a compression corner with a deflection angle 9 = 15. A
straight horizontal wall is present above the corner, parallel to the free stream (see the
figure in example 3 of LEC 16). if the free stream M1 = 3.2, p1 = latm and T

5. When the Apollo command module returned to earth from the moon, it entered the
earths atmosphere at a Mach number of 36. Predict the air temperature at the
stagnation point of the Apollo module, assuming the free stream temperature to be
300K.
