This is just silly enough to be fun. Here is the requested plot: NASA Aerothermodynamics Course Lecture Notes has all of the equations I used: Sutton-Graves Convective Heating: $$\dot{q}_{conv}=k(\frac{\rho}{R_n})^\frac{1}{2}V^3$$ where $k=1.7415*10^{-4}$ for Earth. Martin Radiative Heating: $$\dot{q}_{rad}=\rho^{1.6}R_n^{1.0}V^{8.5}$$ Total heating rate ...
