Temperature and density structure of the 150 km s−1 shock in the unmixed 10 M model with ρ0 = 8.4 × 10−22 g cm−3. The density and temperature of the electrons (ne, Te) and ions (ni, Ti), as a function of the ion column density swept up by the shock, are plotted as the solid and dashed curves, respectively. The extent of the hot post-shock region (B), the thin cooling layer (C), and the photoionization region (D) are indicated by the gray/white bands.
