Abstract

A chemical evolution of W3 IRS5 have been studied during J-type shock. We modified our code of for one-dimensional J-type shock to satisfy the physical conditions of W3 IRS5. The chemical rate equations and the hydrodynamics of shocks are integrated simultaneously. We find that, a shock of speed Vs = 10 km s-1 and magnetic induction B=4.1× 10-6 Gauss, propagate into molecular gas density of n = 104 cm-3, and with initial temperature of 30 K (pre shock) satisfy the physical conditions of W3 IRS5. The results using the extensive chemical network with the most updating reaction rates show that the calculated fractional abundances are in agreement with observation.
