The composition and internal energy of air are computed for a range of temperature from 3,500 up to 11,500 deg R and a range of density from 4 to 12 times normal density. In another connection, the increase of internal energy of air by a shock wave traveling through it is evaluatnd in terms of the same parameters. By adjnsting both expressions of energy, a relation between the temperature and the ratio of molecular volumes V/sub 0/V ahead of and behind the shock front is obtained. The other… CONTINUE READING
