The flow field of a compressible plasma over a biased body is discussed with special emphasis on the electrical characteristics. The governing equations in various asymptotic regions are investigated. A stagnation point probe theory, because of its great practical interest, is given in detail. An analytic current-voltage characteristic is obtained for this case under the assumption of a very thin electrical sheath.
