Abstract : The one-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic equations are given in a form suitable for computer solution for an arbitrary gas model. Evaluation of certain parameters for the case of argon shows that the upper limit on the ratio of the electric field strength to the magnetic field strength for acceleration of a supersonic flow in a constant-area accelerator is strongly influenced by non-ideal gas effects.
