Please could you explain the difference between a subsonic Pitot tube and supersonic one
Looks like significant part of this is the math involved. Wiki article:
Thanks for your response but I ask about thé shock ahead pitot in supersonic an since thé flow is non isentropic so thé stagnation pressure is différente so thé value measured by pitot is false in supersonic régime no....?..
I'm not sure if the pitot tube is significantly different, or if a machmeter just compensates for supersonic issues with math.
