Again, the normal shock is a one-dimensional problem, thus, only one parameter is required (to solve the problem). Oblique shock is a two-dimensional problem and two properties must be provided so a solution can be found. Probably, the most useful properties are upstream Mach number, and the deflection angle, which create a somewhat complicated mathematical procedure, and this will be discussed later. Other combinations of properties provide a relatively simple mathematical treatment, and the solutions of selected pairs and selected relationships will be presented.
