In an earlier paper Ref. 1 the authors analyzed the structure of a shock wave in a gas having a long relaxation time for its internal molecular rotational degrees of freedom. This analysis has now been extended to the case of a diatomic gas having two relaxation effects, one for the rotational and one for the vibrational degrees of freedom.
