This paper deals with the study of propagation of shock waves in 2-D steady supersonic magnetogasdynamics flow of nonideal dusty gas using wavefront analysis method. We derived the transport equation, which determines the condition for the shock formation. Our aim is to analyze the effect of interaction of dust particles with magnetic field in nonideal gas on the evolution of shock formation and to examine how the flow patterns of the disturbance vary with respect to the variations in the physical parameters of the medium. It is found that the presence of magnetic field plays an essential role in the wave propagation phenomena. The nature of the solution with respect to the Mach number is analyzed, and it is examined how the shock formation distance changes with an increase or decrease in the value of Mach number. Also, the combined effect of nonidealness, magnetic field, and dust particles on the shock formation distance is elucidated and examined how the formation of shocks is affected by the increase in the value of corresponding physical parameters.
