One must notice that the maximum temperature at the entrance is . When the Mach number decreases the temperature approaches the stagnation temperature ( ). Hence, if one allows certain deviation of temperature, say about 1% that flow can be assumed to be isothermal. This tolerance requires that which requires that enough for even for large . This requirement provides that somewhere (depend) in the vicinity of the flow can be assumed isothermal. Hence the mass flow rate is a function of because changes. Looking at the table or Figure (9.2) or the results from Potto-GDC attached to this book shows that reduction of the mass flow is very rapid. As it can be seen for the Figure (9.21) the dominating parameter is . The results are very similar for isothermal flow. The only difference is in small dimensionless friction, .
