So how would I go about determining the mach number after the oblique shockwave when the angle has exceed the max and the wave is detached?

In summary, when the angle of the shockwave exceeds the maximum allowable theta, the shockwave becomes detached and the downstream Mach number is equal to the upstream Mach number.

A mach number is the ratio of an object's speed to the speed of sound in the surrounding medium. It is important to calculate after an oblique shockwave because it helps determine the level of compression and heating that occurs during the shockwave, which can have significant impacts on the object and its surroundings.

The mach number after an oblique shockwave can be calculated using the equation M2 = [(M1^2 * sin^2θ) + 2] / [(2 * M1^2 * sin^2θ) - (M1^2 - 1)], where M1 is the mach number before the shockwave and θ is the angle of the shockwave relative to the object.

The mach number after an oblique shockwave can be affected by the angle of the shockwave relative to the object, the mach number before the shockwave, and the properties of the surrounding medium such as temperature and density.

Yes, it is possible for the mach number after an oblique shockwave to be greater than the mach number before the shockwave. This occurs when the shockwave is at a shallow angle and the object is traveling at a high mach number, resulting in an increase in the mach number after the shockwave.

The mach number after an oblique shockwave is used in aerospace engineering to design and analyze the behavior of supersonic and hypersonic vehicles. It is also used in the study of high-speed aerodynamics and in understanding the effects of shockwaves on structures and materials.
