Abstract

Numerical integration of the equations of two-fluid hydrodynamics is used to solve the problem of the one-dimensional expansion in a vacuum of a quasineutral plasmoid, consisting of a mixture of ions of different charges and masses. A space-time picture of the change in me hydrodynamic quantities and the electric field is obtained, and the effect of the ion mass and charge is investigated.
