Abstract : The shock wave structure for a binary mixture of monatomic, perfect, chemically inert gases has been considered by numerous investigators. The authors present in the report the numerical solutions of the v(x) squared - moment equation for a Mott-Smith shock in a Maxwellian gas. The solutions are valid for any mass ratio and Mach number.
