Abstract : The equilibrium conditions behind reflected shock waves in oxyg and nitrogen over a range of initial pressures of 0.5 mm Hg to 760 mm Hg and up to temperatures of about 24,000 K have been computed. An IBM 704 code developed at Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory by Russell E. Duff was used. The species included were N2, N, N2(+), N(+), N(++), N(-), O2, O3, O, O2(+), O(+), O(++), O2(-), O(-), and e. (Author)
