Cooling and energy loss of partially ionized hydrogen gas behind a shock wave

Oksana Mikhailovna Belova, Konstantin Veniaminovich Bychkov


Abstract We studied the difference in behavior of total energy and its thermal component during the radiative cooling of partially ionized hydrogen gas. Our calculations were fulfilled for the conditions in the atmosphere of a cool star. It is shown that the attenuation of total energy loss does not interfere with the cooling rate.
