The oblique shock-wave equations have been solved for a range of Mach number in front of the shock from 1.05 to 4.0 and for a range of shock angle from a simple Mach wave to a normal shock. The results of these calculations are presented in tabular form and include values for the Mach number in front of the shock, the shock angle, the deviation of the flow across the shock, the Mack number behind the shock, the ratio of pressure behind the shock to pressure in front of the shock, the ratio of density in front of the shock to density behind the shock, and the change in entropy across the shock.
