Constant entropy flow is called Isentropic flow.

From a consideration of the second law of thermodynamics, a reversible flow maintains a constant value of entropy

Below are the formulas... someone needs to add some explaining text here

M = \frac{u}{a}

a = \sqrt{\gamma R T}

\frac{p_0}{p} = (\frac{T_0}{T})^\frac{\gamma}{\gamma - 1}
