Abstract:

A study was made of shock waves produced in neutral argon gas by a theta-pinch device. From the study, graphs were made of the velocity of the shock wave observed versus the applied magnetic field, the bank voltage of the capacitor bank, and the argon pressure in the plasma chamber. Author
