Calculate Velocity Ratio Across Shock Wave Using Rankine-Hugoniot Relations

Online physics calculator to determine the velocity ratio across a shock wave using Rankine-Hugoniot Relations.
Rankine–hugoniot relations, portray the relationship between the states on both sides of a shock wave in an one-dimensional stream in liquids and in solids.

Formula:

v1 / v2 = (γ+1) / [ (γ-1) + (2 / M12) ] Where, v1 / v2 = Velocity γ = Ratio of Specific Heats M1 = Mach Number

Mach Number is the ratio of the speed of a body to the speed of sound in the surrounding medium.
