  1. A flow is considered to be a compressible flow if the change in density of the flow with respect to pressure is non-zero along a streamline

  2. In general, this is the case where the Mach number in part or all of the flow exceeds 0.3

  3. The Mach .3 value is rather arbitrary, but it is used because gas flows with a Mach number below that value demonstrate changes in density with respect to the change in pressure of less than 5%

  4. Furthermore, that maximum 5% density change occurs at the stagnation point of an object immersed in the gas flow and the density changes around the rest of the object will be significantly lower

  5. The factor that distinguishes a flow from being compressible or incompressible is the fact that in compressible flow the changes in the velocity of the flow can lead to changes in the temperature which are not negligible
