Q: Is a wake the region of disturbed flow downstream of a solid body moving through a fluid? ¶
A: Yes, and caused by the flow of the fluid around the body.
Q: Is a wake used as a jump? ¶
Q: Are wakes occasionally used recreationally? ¶
Q: Is a wake also used to propel a surfer in the sport of wakesurfing? ¶
Q: Is a wake created when a watercraft moves through the medium? ¶
A: Yes, as the medium cannot be compressed, it must be displaced instead, resulting in a wave.
Q: Is a wake massively separated and behind the body is a reverse flow region where the flow is moving toward the body? ¶
Q: Is a wake at 53°, which is roughly the average of 33° and 72°? ¶
A: Yes, The wave components with would-be shock wave angles between 73° and 90° dominate the interior of the V. They end up half-way between the point of generation and the current location of the wake source.
