This is precisely why I asked if you've ever taken a course on fluid dynamics and/or compressible flow. I am trying to figure out where your base-level knowledge is and where your misconceptions arise. It will be much better for you if you go on a guided exploration of this topic than if I just blurt out the answer here.

So, I ask again:

So, I ask again:

- Have you taken a fluid dynamics course before? What about compressible flow?
- Why do you think that, in a choked nozzle, changing upstream conditions will not affect the downstream flow?
- What exactly do you think choked means? If you have a converging-diverging nozzle, can you give a rough sketch of the Mach number along the length of the nozzle, starting from the reservoir and going all the way through to the exit plane (assuming the nozzle is operating ideally)?
