Okay, say we have an electric fan that is used as a compressor, and behind that is the main burner, and behind that is a constricting divergent-divergent nozzle. Say that the pressure and temperature behind the compressor is such that it is choked, meaning the mass rate cannot be increased. Now what if the temperature were to increase. What would happen? Would the mass rate go down or would it stay the same?

Plus this might not be my only question about this.
