The Rankine-Hugoniot conditions are examined and then applied to develop the similarity solution for a strong spherical shock. Several interesting theorems can be observed about the jump conditions. The similarity solution has been considered in the literature, but it apparently has not been carried out completely it turns out that a simple solution is available to this important problem.
