A simple relation between the two-dimensional wedge pressure coefficients for shock and expansion is shown to apply for the entire hypersonic regime. As a consequence, the hypersonic small-disturbance theory expressions for these coefficients are further simplified as are calculations of pressure distributions on arbitrary two-dimensional configurations at hypersonic speeds.
