Wavelength Calculator for Kelvin Wedge in Shock Waves

The wake formed by the traveling of boats in the water surface are called kelvin wedge since it was initially explained by Lord Kelvin. This forms sinusoidal waves .The waves formed with phase angle below relative velocity forms shock waves. Calculate the characteristic wavelength of the kelvin wedge in shock waves using this wavelength calculator.
